Description

Frederick Sinnett (8 March 1830 – 23 November 1866) was a literary critic and journalist in colonial Australia. Sinnett was born in Hamburg, Germany, a son of Mrs. Percy Sinnett, a well-known English author, and was educated for the profession of civil engineer. He went to South Australia in 1849 as engineer to the Adelaide and Port Railway Company; but the scheme was never carried out. He then went into partnership with Thomas Burr, a former Deputy Surveyor General of South Australia, eventually (in 1857 in Melbourne) marrying Burr's eldest daughter, Jane. During this period he contributed regularly to the Mining Journal, edited by George Stevenson, at that time considered the best-conducted paper in South Australia.
