AMITY’ Built 1816. Wood brig of 148 Tons. Length: 75.6 ft: Breadth: 21.5 ft. Depth: 11.5 ft. 

The wood brig ‘Amity’ sat at her moorings riding the gentle swell that came with the flat calm of a new moon over Sydney Harbour. She was a powerful little vessel, built for the rigors of the North Atlantic Ocean; she had been built seven years before in 1816 and had plied the Trans-Atlantic trade without so much as a single hitch. The ‘Amity’ was bought by the Ralston family of Wigtown, Scotland, they had decided to buy their own vessel to ship their household goods and family, lock, stock and barrel to Australia. They departed Scotland in late November 1823 and arrived in Sydney in May 1824. They probably opted for a quiet six-month voyage out to avoid the risk of shipwreck. 
Private vessels of her size could easily complete the voyage in three to four months. On June 10th 1824, the Sydney Gazette reported that the Government of New South Wales intended to form a settlement at Moreton Bay or a nearby vicinity. With this point in view, the government bought and equipped the ‘Amity’ with every description of Provisions and Stores to last the little settlement for a period of six months. The Colonial Botanical Gardener, Mr. Fraser, selected tropical fruit plants, viz. Pineapples, Mangoes, Lemons, Oranges, Loquats, Bananas and Guavas etc. Seeds were also sent such as Cabbage, Lettuce, French Beans, Turnips and Pumpkins. A small schooner was set on her deck for use in surveying the Brisbane River. The ‘Amity’ was placed under the captaincy of Captain Penson and she departed Sydney on the 1st of September 1824, bound for Moreton Bay. Those who went with her were:

The convicts were originally under the command of Lieutenant Miller, many of them were volunteers who hoped to gain their ticket-of-leave as a reward for helping to establish the new penal colony.

Allan Cunningham.
Allan Cunningham wrote in his journal:1st September 1824.  "With a light breeze from the westward, we weighed anchor and quitted the harbour". 
And so they were underway, the settlement was yet to be sited and they only had old reports on which to rely for guidance.

Lt. Miller wrote to the Governor on the 30th of September, 'We anchored here on the following evening of the 12th instant within ¼ of a mile of Redcliffe Point. On the following day, I accompanied the Surveyor General to examine the best island in the bay which we found in no respect eligible, being small, swampy and without fresh water. On the 14th, we selected here, apparently calculated in all respects to answer the wishes of his Excellency. [It was] well watered by a deep lagoon one hundred and fifty yards from the place marked out for the settlement.
Temporary huts, for the shelter of the soldiers and convicts were constructed, as well as a temporary store as a repository for the ironmongery. The Commissariat Stores for the reception of the provision for the subsistence of the settlement were erected of logs, under the direction of Mr. Scott. The Commandant’s house, which had been brought from Port Jackson in frame, was also in progress. But [due to] the actual absence of parts and other frames not fitting together, much inconvenience had arisen. Obliging new materials to be cut by the sawyers, who were fully employed cutting weatherboards, scantling and rafters from the blue gum of these forests.
On the northern side of the creek, the gardens were laid out and the planting of vegetables commenced. Although there was a plentiful supply of water, a well was dug near the shore. The trees lining the path from the creek to the shore were marked on both sides so the soldiers would not lose their way”. 
Lt. Henry Miller. 
The official party returned to Sydney aboard the ‘Amity’ and arrived there after a passage of only four days. John Oxley reported leaving the settlement in good health and spirits. The site of the settlement was dry and open to the sea breeze.

Governor Brisbane was pleased with the report and decided to visit Moreton Bay and the river that had been named after him. The chief Justice, John Macarthur and Francis Stephens accompanied the governor on the settlement first vice-regal visit to Moreton Bay. When they arrived, they found the settlement progressing well and the officials went sight seeing on the Brisbane River and marveled at its beauty. A site was fixed for a new town to be built on the river, a few miles upstream, the chief justice wanted to name it ‘Edenglassie’ but the name never stuck and the town became known by the same name as the Brisbane River.

Despite the fact that the new settlement had plenty of water, it was decided to look around for a new port. Redcliffe was too open to the weather and the ‘Amity’ almost came to grief while at anchor, she had to ride out a storm, about four miles offshore.

Cleveland was looked at but after wading through knee high mud at low tide, that thought was abandoned and the decision was made to take the settlement to Brisbane, the move was probably completed by the end of May 1825.

A monument stands at Redcliffe to commemorate Matthew Flinders, John Oxley, Lieutenant Henry Miller and the convicts who opened up the City of Brisbane and the State of Queensland.

+ Died on voyage from Cancer.
* Dickinson or Dixon. Husband George Dixon convicted July 1827.
*Fox or Sainty: A notation that her husband, John Sainty was at Denbeigh? N. Wales is curious.
She had three children and at her age, should have taken them with her. This is not recorded so it assumed that the children must have remained with the father.
* Lyons Catherine, Husband Denis Manning and one child went with her. Sentence; 7years.
* Lowther Harriet, Husband William Lowther was a bricklayer in London at the time she was convicted.
*Mary Ann Mean, her husband and five children went with her.
William Mean is listed as ---c--p--ed Free. This may mean that her husband accompanied his wife and children as a free man. She was to spend her life in Australia, so it is reasonable to assume that her husband went along to look after the children until she had served her time.
*Parkin Lucy. She was a widow with one child that may have accompanied her.
* Pope A. She had a child 17 years old accompany her? to Australia. One other remained with her husband in England. The age of the child may have been 7 years
* Robertson Sarah, [married name Anderson.] Husband: Hugh Anderson, was convicted separately.
* Smith Lydia, husband James Smith remained behind at Bristol.
*Smith Martha, husband James? Smith was convicted at the same time.
*Shilling Eliza, died in the ‘Factory’ about the 19th of March 1838? [this date is not fully legible].The factory was probably the female factory at Parramatta.

FLORENTIA’ [1st voyage]. Built 1821 at Newcastle, Northumberland. Wood ship of 453 Tons. She carried 165 male convicts to Sydney and had one death en-route.

The convict list for ‘Florentia’ was supplied to me in a very poor state and was difficult to translate. What is quite readable, is the muster total at the end of the list. 165 convicts arrived in Sydney, one died en-route and 6 convicts were taken off before departure. There were a total of 172 convicts embarked and 165 were disembarked in Sydney. The muster was taken on the 5th of January1828, on board the ship, before the convicts were taken ashore by the Colonial Secretary, Alexander McLeay.

*The last three of these women were Afro-Jamaicans, all bore the mark of the slave. Many such Afro-Americans came to Australia and Tasmania. Their bloodlines have long since been absorbed into the Australian multi-culture.
A total of 161 female convicts were embarked in England, all survived the voyage. Most of the crimes were stealing and man robbing, handkerchiefs and shawls were the most popular goods that were stolen. Sentences of seven years for a first offence and 14 years to life for second or repeated offences were given.
Many of the women convicts had children that accompanied them. Jane Carter, a widow, had one boy child. Rachael Finnegan, single, had one boy child. Ellen Clark, a widow, had three children, two boys and a girl.. Bridget McDonald, married, had one young boy child. Ann Reason, single, had one boy child. Hannah Hart, a widow had one girl child. Frances Little, single, had one girl child. Diana Donathew, married, had two male children. Charlotte Chinery, single, had two female children. Bridget Calligan a widow had two children, one boy one girl, the son went with her aged 18 months. Alice MacShape a widow had two female children. Ann Wilkinson, married, had four children, one girl child went with her. Ann Werham, single, had one boy child. Elizabeth Curtis, married, had two male children, one went with her. Eliza Kerry a widow had three male children. Martha Starkie had three children, two boys and a girl. Mary Starkie, Single, had one boy child. Louisa Collier Married, had one girl child. Mary Mahone, married, had two children, one boy one girl. About 29 children went with them to Australia, names were not supplied but the boys outnumbered the girls 19 to 12.
 Sadly, families were broken up and in many cases, husbands or wives either accompanied their spouses and served a sentence for no crime or if not allowed to go with their loved one, the spouse would commit a crime and be on the next ship out. Some wives joined their husbands after five or six years battling on alone in the old countries. Mothers, separated from children of ten years old and upwards, could expect their child to commit a crime at some time in the future so that they could join up with their mother in Australia. In some cases. Almost entire families came to Australia separated by only a few years as they tried desperately to unite once again. 

LADY KENNAWAY’ [2nd voyage] Built 1817 at Calcutta. Wood ship of 584 Tons. She carried 300 male convicts to Sydney and had two deaths en-route. She departed the ‘Downs’ [Kent] on the 11th of June 1836 and arrived in Sydney on the 12th of October 1836. Master: Captain Robert P. Davidson. Surgeon: James Wilson.*

*A feature of the convict list for this vessel is the fact that some of the convicts were from the West Indies. They were black African-American men who were convicted of crimes that went from stealing a rabbit [life] to manslaughter [2 cases, one got 14 years, the other life.]. The strange and erratic way of the judiciary during that topsy-turvy era, must have had solicitors beating their heads against the hallowed walls of the Old Bailey. Strange as it may seem, the British government shipped the West Indians back to England and then sent them out to Australia rather than have use for them in the West Indies. The law certainly made the convicts pay for a crime, sentences were given dependant on the whim of the magistrate. 

LADY NUGENT’ [2nd voyage] Built 1813 at Bombay, India. Wood ship of 535 Tons. She carried 286 male convicts to Hobart and had no deaths en-route. She departed Sheerness on the 14th of July 1836 and arrived at Hobart on the 12th of November 1836.:Master; Captain J. Faust. Surgeon: John Dob. 

CAPTAIN COOK’ [3rd voyage] Built 1826 at Whitby. Wood ship of 451 Tons. She carried 229 male convicts to Sydney and had one death en-route. She departed Cork, Ireland on the 5th of July 1836 and arrived in Sydney on the 13th of November 1836. Master: Captain George W. Brown. Surgeon Arthur Savage. 

HENRY PORCHER’[3rd voyage] Built 1817 at Bristol. Wood ship of 485 Tons. She carried 260 male convicts to Hobart and had two deaths en-route. She departed Portsmouth on the 4th of August 1836 and arrived at Hobart on the 15th of November 1836. Master: Captain John Hart. Surgeon: John Smith. 

WESTMORELAND’ [2nd voyage] Built 1832 at Lynn. Wood barque of 405 Tons. She carried 165 female convicts to Hobart and had one death en-route. She departed Woolwich on the 12th of August 1836 and arrived at Hobart on the 3rd of December 1836. Master; Captain John Brigstock. Surgeon: J. Ellis. 

BENGAL MERCHANT’ Built 1812 at Calcutta. Wood ship of 503 Tons. She carried 270 male convicts to Sydney and had one death en-route. She departed the ‘Downs’ [Kent] on the 8th of August 1836 and arrived in Sydney on the 9th of December 1836. Master: Captain William Campbell. Surgeon: John Tarn. 

PYRAMUS’ Built 1822. Wood barque of 362 Tons. She carried 120 female convicts to Sydney and had no deaths en-route. She departed Cork, Ireland on the 20th of August 1836 and arrived in Sydney on the 14th of December 1836. Master: Captain George N. Livesay. Surgeon: Obediah Pineo.

Notes:
Many of these women were mothers and many left children behind them. Those who were allowed to take their children with them were; Bridget McMahon, one of her five children accompanied her to Australia. Eliza Molloy one male and one female child went with her. Edith O’Neill, one female. Mary Christy, one male. Mary McNamara, one female. Catherine McGowan, one male, one female. Bridget Doherty, one male, one female. Mary Cox, one male. Celia Ward, one female. Sally Durgin, one female. Margaret McKeegan, two males, one female. Marcella Mite, one female. Mary Prestage, one female. Anne Flood, one male, one female. Mary Driscoll, one female. Judith Shea, one male. Mary Linghan, one male, one female. Ellen Gordon, one male, one female. Mary Moyles, one male. Judith Deering, three females. Mary Ryan, one male, one female. Elizabeth Lawless, one female. A total of 34 children, 19 female and 14 males with one whose sex was undisclosed were aboard with their mothers.
Other women appear to have committed crimes to join husbands or relatives in Australia. Ellen Gordon, whose husband Rodger was transported aboard the Captain Cook 1836, was one such wife who wanted to join her husband
Catherine Clarke, husband Richard Murphy and her brother Thomas Clarke were transported in 1833.
Honora Shea had almost her whole family accompany her, two daughters sailed with her as convicts and a son was also transported the same year.
Catherine McGowan, her husband Patrick Gallagher was transported in 1831.
Eliza Molloy, her sisters Mary and Ann James were transported a few years earlier.
Mary Driscoll, her husband Cornelius Driscoll was transported in 1830 and her mother Mary and sister Ellen Walsh were transported in 1829.
Mary Rooney, her two brothers, John, 1833 and Christopher, 1835 were awaiting her in Australia.
Ellen Corcoran, her husband William Corcoran, was transported in 1834.
Anne Floyd, her husband Matthew Wilkinson was transported on the ‘Waterloo’ in 1836, her sister Bridget Daly was transported in 1836.
Sally Durgin, her husband Patrick was convicted and transported on another vessel at the same time as his wife.
Celia Ward, Husband James Ward also convicted at the same time. Margaret Cullen, Sister Ann Cullen was transported in 1834.
Judith Hickey, her sister Mary Hay was transported in 1832. Catherine Shaw, her brother John Scan alias O’Donnell was transported in 1830. Her husband John Shaw, was transported aboard the ‘Captain Cook’ in 1836.
Bridget Smyth, her sisters Ellen Riley and Mary Mustard were transported in 1831.
Jane McMahon, her brothers John [1832] and Edward [1833] were also transported on those respective years.
Anne Whelan, her sister Elizabeth Hanlon was transported aboard the ‘Roslyn Castle’ in 1836. Her husband Patrick Byrne was transported about 1831.
This is a small roll call for just one vessel, the total amount of convicts that had family already in the new colonies must have numbered in the thousands.
*Jane McMahon, also used the first name, Bridget.
*Ellen Gordon, probable married name, McLally
* Mary Supple, probable married name, Hickson
*Mary Gordon, probable married name, Carty.
*Catherine Walsh, also went by the name Mary Walsh
*Mary Maloney appears to have refused to give personal details other than her age, the examiner may have guessed this at. She was convicted of the felony; ‘Wearing apparel’. Her physical description leans toward her profession being a cook from one of the cities, Dublin or Cork. She was tried in Dublin and one wonders what she wore that so outraged the judge.
*Bridget Burke, also known as Bridget Coyne
* Mary Walsh, also known as Mary McCarthy
*Mary Cox was sentenced to a further five years at the “Factory” in 1844.
*Eliza Molloy, first name is almost unreadable and could be Motley.
* Judith Power, also known as Judith Brophy

Three convicts had only one name, they were known as Sharper, of Nevis, Henry, from the Caribbean and Tim, of Tobago. They were all probably Afro-West Indies.
There are a few repeat names on the conviction lists and these are up to the researcher to decipher. There are 283 convicts listed above and only 278 were received in Australia, two deaths were recorded on the voyage out.
