From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Captain Robert Hunt, soldier and penal administrator, of the 57th Regiment was the fourth commandant of the second convict settlement at Norfolk Island, from November 1828 to February 1829.

He was appointed to replace Captain Thomas Edward Wright who had been recalled to Sydney to stand trial for the alleged murder of a convict.

Hunt was himself recalled after three months.
