Bent Street

 

Ellis Bent (1783 – 10 November 1815) was the deputy judge advocate between 1810 and 1815 of New South Wales. The deputy judge advocate was the senior legal officer of the colony and functioned in many ways as a Chief Justice. Bent was the first barrister to be appointed to a judicial office in the infant colony in an era when military officers were commonly appointed to the position.   

Bent Street in Sydney,  Bent's Basin and Ellis Bent Road, Greendale near the Warragamba Dam are named after him.
