HMS Sirius 1788 locked

The First Fleet Naval Escorts - HMS Sirius

Free arrivals to New South Wales on the Naval Escort HMS Sirius - 1788
The HMS Sirius was one of the two naval escorts for the First Fleet. The first Governor of New South Wales, Arthur Phillip, travelled on board this ship to take up his appointment. The HMS Sirius was formerly named the HMS Berwick, an armed store ship, but prior to its departure for NSW she underwent refitting to be a 6th rate at the Deptford Yard at a cost of £7,072.

The Sirius was lost on 19 March 1790 at Norfolk Island after grounding on a reef. The crew were stranded on Norfolk Island until, on 12 February 1791, they were embarked on the Waaksamheid, a Dutch chartered vessel, and returned to England.

The HMS Sirius carried no convicts to the colony but did transport 101 convict men, 65 convict women and 23 children from Sydney Cove to Norfolk Island on her final voyage.
