Mermaid - arrived in WA in 1851 SOURCES

This 473 ton barque was built in Calcutta in 1817. It was employed as a convict transport and left Portsmouth, England on January 9, 1851 bound for the Swan River Colony. She carried the third of 37 shipments of male convicts destined for Western Australia. The voyage took 123 days and the Mermaid arrived in Fremantle on May 13, 1851 with 91 passengers and 208 convicts [Erickson]. J.P. Anderson and Alex Kilroy were the captain and surgeon respectively.

There were no deaths recorded on the convict shipping and description lists and 208 convict numbers were assigned for the voyage ranging from (176 to 383).

Of the 91 passengers mentioned above, all 91 were pensioner guards and their families, the number being made up of 29 pensioner guards, 23 wives, 20 sons and 19 daughters.

Alex Kilroy's surgeon's journal for the voyage is preserved in the Public Record Office (PRO) in London. Researchers can view a copy on the Australian Joint Copying Project (AJCP) microfilm reel M711 which is held in most major libraries and archives offices throughout Australia.

The following list is an alphabetically sorted list of the names associated with each of the 208 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 Mermaid. 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.
