Beyond the Sea

Log Book of the Convict Transport Atlas, 1801 - 1802

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.

His love is the key to her release. Sentenced to seven years of servitude in the penal colony of New South Wales, Bridgit Madden is thrust into a world unlike anything she's known, dangers she never imagined and enemies with their own interests at heart. Certain the conviction has ruined her chances of ever having a real family, she is fearful of her future. Despite his reluctance to take in a convict, grazier and pioneer cattleman Jonah Andrus needs a servant to care for his orphaned niece. When presented with Bridgit, who is far too beautiful and distracting, he initially tries to refuse. However, with a busy cattle station to oversee, he needs help right away. Upon her first meeting with Jonah's niece, Bridgit immediately falls in love with the baby and hopes to unravel the mystery surrounding her birth. As she gets to know her employer better, Bridgit makes it her mission to remind him that family is priceless. When it seems as though she might have found the place she truly belongs, their love is threatened by lies and deceit, and both of them might lose everything they hold dear for a second time. 65,000 Words

Depraved and Disorderly

Female Convicts, Sexuality and Gender in Colonial Australia

Author: Joy Damousi

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

This innovative book tells the powerful stories of convict women, while drawing out broader themes of gender and sexual disorder and race and class dynamics. It looks at the cultural meanings of aspects of life in the colony: on ships, in the factories and in orphanages. Damousi considers such topics as headshaving as punishment in the prisons, as well as analyzing the language of pollution, purity and abandonment. The book shows how understanding about sexual and racial difference became a focus for cultural anxiety in colonial society.

On 15 March 1817 the convict ship the Chapman departed from the Cork with 200 male convicts on board. When it dropped anchor off Sydney Cove on four months later its decks were blood-soaked. The prison doors opened to reveal 160 gaunt and brutalised men. Twelve were dead and twenty-eight lay wounded in the ships’ hospital. Using daily journals from the crew, detailed testimony from several convict and official colonial government correspondence, this book pieces together what happened during those four months at sea and sheds new light on one of the darkest episodes in the history of penal transportation.

Passage to the World

The Emigrant Experience 1807-1940

From the early nineteenth century onwards, literally millions of people left their homes to cross the seas. Some, like the convicts transported to Australia, had no choice; others like the indentured Indian and Chinese labourers had almost no alternative; but the vast majority were driven to escape war, famine or grinding poverty in Europe by seeking a new life abroad. Whatever their circumstances and wherever their destination, the one experience they all shared in common was the sea voyage. This book is centred on the rite of passage that marked the transition from one life to the other, tracing the story of the emigrant, through a fresh look at original sources and first-hand accounts, from the decision to emigrate, the journey to the port and the voyage itself, to arrival in the new world. It describes the emigrant trade, the differing conditions on board sailing ships and steamers, convict and coolie ships, and the perils of overcrowding, epidemics, fire, shipwreck and even cannibalism. It also investigates the varied receptions emigrants were likely to face – not necessarily the welcome promised the ‘homeless, tempest-tost’ by the Statue of Liberty. This unprecedented population shift left few European families untouched by emigration, while the present-day populations of the Americas and Australasia are dominated by the descendants of those who made the journey. This gives the emigrants’ story a universal interest.
