    Notes 
    • Convicted at the Lincoln Assizes 16 March 1789 and received a 14 years sentence. He sailed on the ‘Matilda’, a 460 tons vessel which was built at the French yards in 1779. Mathew Weatherhead was the Master and the ‘Matilda’ sailed from Portsmouth 27 March 1791 with a compliment of 230 male Convicts. She broke the record set by the ‘Mary Ann’ by making the passage from England to Port Jackson in 127 days – 16 days faster than her rival. It is thought that many of the 25 deaths suffered by the Convicts were due to the leaky state of the ship. Many were old and infirmed at the time they embarked. ‘Matilda’ arrived on 1 August 1791.
