The Second Fleet

The Second Fleet consisted of six ships, one of these (the Justinian) was a Stores Ship. The Guardian did not make it New South Wales, being wrecked while at sea. The bulk of the passengers and crew were transferred to other ships of the fleet.

These ships were bringing much needed supplies to a colony that was on the brink of starvation. This fleet of ships, however, became known as the death fleet due to the large number of deaths among the convicts during the voyage.

In total the Second Fleet carried 984 male convicts, 323 female convicts as well as the members of the New South Wales Corps, their wives and children and Government officials. Excluding the ships crews there were about 1580+ people on the fleet.
