  • List of convicts on the First Fleet

    serch.it?q=List-of-convicts-on-the-First-Fleet

    The First Fleet convicts are named on stone tablets in the Memorial Garden, Wallabadah, New South Wales. The First Fleet is the name given to the group of eleven ships carrying convicts, the first to do so, that left England in May 1787 and arrived in Australia in January 1788. The ships departed with an estimated 775 convicts (582 men and 193 women), as well as officers, marines, their wives and children, and provisions and agricultural implements. After 43 convicts had died during the eight-month trip, 732 landed at Sydney Cove. In 2005, the First Fleet Garden, a memorial to the First Fleet immigrants, friend and others was created on the banks of Quirindi Creek at Wallabadah, New South Wales. Stonemason Ray Collins researched and then carved the names of all those who came out to Australia on the eleven ships in 1788 on tablets along the garden pathways. The stories of those who arrived on the ships, their life, and first encounters with the Australian country are presented throughout the garden. No single definitive list of people who travelled on those ships exists; however, historians have pieced together as much data about these pioneers as possible.
