Nile - arrived in WA in 1858 SOURCES

This 763 ton ship was built at Sunderland in 1849. It was employed as a convict transport for Western Australia and left Plymouth, England on September 23, 1857 bound for the Swan River Colony, stopping at Bahia, Brazil on the way. She carried the nineteenth of 37 shipments of male convicts destined for Western Australia. The voyage took 100 days and the Nile arrived in Fremantle on January 1, 1858 with 40 passengers and 268 convicts [Erickson]. W. Johnson was the captain of the vessel.

The two deaths recorded on the convict shipping and description lists were for Hodgson Dawson (4662) and John Hunter (4708) and other sources say they both died on the voyage out. There were 270 convict numbers assigned for the voyage ranging from (4508 to 4777) and the [Bateson] account of the voyage differs from both [Erickson] and the convict lists above by saying that 270 convicts embarked and 270 arrived.

There were no pensioner guards on the voyage and the 40 passengers mentioned above have not been accounted for but were possibly cabin passengers or regular soldiers.

In contrast to the above, on January 8, 1858, the 'Perth Gazette' accounted for 60 passengers made up of 27 sappers, 13 women and 20 children. To add to the confusion, correspondence from the Colonial Office listed 38 passengers made up of 10 warders, 8 wives, 9 boys and 11 girls.

The following list is an alphabetically sorted list of the names associated with each of the 270 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 he was taken to trial.

NOTE: 1
Another list detailing the physical appearance of the convicts has been transcribed for this voyage of the Nile. It can be viewed here or by following the links to Physical Description on the list below.

NOTE: 2
Trial accounts for convicts on this voyage of the Nile are being transcribed from newspaper and the court accounts of the day. As they are added to the list below, the convict's surname is changed to capital letters and given a link to a pop-up window with all the details. Similar transcripts for the other 42 voyages to Western Australia will be added as time permits.

NOTE: 3
A descendant from a cabin passenger on the Nile has provided two transcripts of personal letters written by Mathew Hale, the Bishop of Perth (Australia). Janice Hayes's transcripts give readers a different impression of convict behaviour at sea. In letters written from Bahia, Brazil on November 3 and later while approaching the coast of Western Australia on Januray 1, Bishop Hale described periods of convict unrest on board before he joined the Nile in Plymouth and in the months that followed.
