Stag - arrived in WA in 1855 SOURCES

This 678 ton barque was built at Sunderland in 1842. It was employed as a convict transport for Western Australia and left London, England on February 5, 1855 bound for the Swan River Colony. She carried the fourteenth of 37 shipments of male convicts destined for Western Australia. The voyage took 107 days and the Stag arrived in Fremantle on May 23, 1855 with 89 passengers and 255 convicts [Erickson]. H.N. Clarke and Jos. Caldwell were the captain and surgeon respectively.

There were no deaths recorded on the convict shipping and description lists and 225 convict numbers were assigned for the voyage ranging from (3220 to 3444). The [Erickson] figure of 255 convicts would seem to be a typographical error and the [Bateson] account also varies with a claim that 225 convicts embarked and only 224 arrived.

Of the 89 passengers mentioned above, all 89 were pensioner guards and their families, the number being made up of 30 pensioner guards, 24 wives, 17 sons and 18 daughters.

A copy of H.N. Clarke's captain's log for the voyage is preserved in the Battye Library in Perth, Western Australia. Researchers can only view it in Perth.

The following list is an alphabetically sorted list of the names associated with each of the 225 convict numbers assigned to this voyage. The comments field gives alternative names attributed to the various convicts, many of which are not only spelling variations, but alternative names used in later life or in subsequent re-convictions. The age quoted seems to refer to the age of the convict when the passenger list was created.

NOTE:
Another list detailing the physical appearance of the convicts has been transcribed for this voyage of the Stag. It can be viewed here or by following the links to Physical Description on the list below. Similar lists for the other 42 voyages to Western Australia are being added as time permits.
