George Clouten received early land grants and George Street was apparently named from him in 1888. He was a fisherman. A descendant, Keith Clouten wrote the book 'Reid's Mistake'. The former Roslyn Private Hospital, Nurse Dick's maternity hospital was in George Street. This was originally the house of Capt. Bain, the harbour master of Newcastle.
