Henry Willey Reveley (1788-1875) arrived in 1829 on the Parmelia. He had joined that ship at the Cape Colony, Governor Stirling having appointed him chief engineer, which office he held 1829-1838. He was responsible for all public works, which included designing the Round House (1831), and the Whalers Tunnel (1838) underneath it.
He was a friend of poet Percy Bysshe Shelley whom he saved from drowning in the Arno in 1821.
