This log book is an aid to researching and understanding the historic voyage of the Atlas, arguably the worst in the history of convict transportation from Ireland to the infant colony of New South Wales. This is first time the log of this voyage has been published and a listing been made available covering the convicts, crew and passengers. The publication is set out in three parts: 1. The voyage 2. The log 3. The convicts by muster, census and their fate on arrival. It is hoped the evidence gleaned from the log book of the Atlas will add to the background of the voyage and the tragic history of convict transportation to New South Wales. Each page of the original log has been scanned and enhanced, then transcribed for ease of readership and study. It is hoped that noting individual convicts will provide a working document for further research by those who have ancestors who survived the voyage, and went on to create a family of proud 'native' Australians. Their strong work ethic, sense of humour, friendliness, love of life and cheeky lack of respect for authority and all things English became entrenched in the way the nation developed its Australian-ness. Australia was because of them. The log is an important reference point for the book titled 'Beyond the Sea' - The life and times of Murtagh Ahern.

And ultimately, Tom comes up against the cruel hand of the law. Accused of murder, Tom is given a seven-year sentence. He is to be transported to Van Diemen’s Land with other juvenile convicts.
