 Parkhurst Boys 1842-1862
Mary - arrived in WA in 1849 SOURCES

The 'Mary' is said to have left the Isle of Wight on July 4, 1849 and to have arrived in Fremantle, Western Australia on October 24, 1849.

In all, she was said to have carried 83 passengers and the 53 Parkhurst boys who embarked at the Isle of Wight were among that number.

The boys were listed in Paul Buddee's book, 'Fate of the Artful Dodger' and in Andrew Gill's later work, 'Forced Labour for the West'. Additional information was given in AJCP Reel 448 CO 18/58 letter #70 'Report by Wittenoom, Guardian of Juveniles'.

The 53 'apprentices' who were transported on the 'Mary' are transcribed below.
