By undertaking the hazardous journey to Delagoa Bay in 1827, to bring back medicines and ship-building equipment, he acquired legendary status as the saviour of the tiny community at Port Natal. Born in Scotland in 1815, his real name was Charles Rawden Maclean. He was a ship's apprentice when shipwrecked off Port natal, and went on to become a sea-captain in the West Indian sugar trade.
