Ann had been tried in Meath,Ireland, during the the Spring of 1800. Found guilty, sentenced to seven years transportation to New South Wales, she too was held in custody to await a ship. On Sunday the 28th November 1801, two vessels , Hercules with Ann aboard  and Atlas , sailed from the Port Of Cork. The Hercules , a two deck square masted vessel of three hundred and ninety five tons burthen, built in Newcastle England was armed with ten guns , carried a crew of between 32 and 35 men , 140 male and 25 female prisoners and several passengers- among them Major Johnston who was alter to figure prominently in the history of the Colony. the ship also carried a detachment of the New South Wales Corps, under captain Ralph Wilson. ( pro reel 413 wo 12/9901 folio160 ML)

On Tuesday 29th December in the vicinity of Cape Verdes, there was a mutiny aboard ship and thirteen of the convicts were either killed during the mutiny or afterwards died from their wounds. One was later shot by Captain Betts. ( PRO 10 p 260)

At Rio after a disagreement with Captain Brookes who commanded the ATLAS Thomas Jamieson , the acting Surgeon General, with his wife and five children transferred to the HERCULES which arrived in Sydney Town on  Saturday 26th. June 1802. Thirty convicts beside the mutineers died on the journey and forty three were sick.  On landing Captain Lukyn Betts gave his report of the mutiny. He was later charged with killing the mutineer after he had surrendered and was fined several hundred pounds. Five seamen charged with assisting the mutineers were acquitted.

  1. I am currently writing a book on the Atlas and the voyage of that ship and the Hercules. I wanted to advise the date of arrival of the Hercules in Port Jackson, it was June 26, 1802, not 1801. The Atlas arrived July 6, 1802. Hercules left Cork with the Atlas on November 29,1801. Regarding the fine paid by Betts, it was exactly 500 pounds and allocated to the Orphan fund, if he did not pay the fine at the end of the trial he was to be imprisoned. Interestingly, Betts was found ‘not guilty’ of the first indictment. However, guilty of manslaughter of Prendergass. I have copies of both log books and trial notes (HRA).

    Hope this adds some helpful ‘extras’ to your research.

    Regards

  2. Thank you kindly Brian. Phil’s research was done quite a few years ago and he is hopeful, as am I, that we will find such helpful extras as you have just provided. Many thanks and looking forward to your book. One of the other strands of the family is a Prendergass. I wonder whether they were connected as well. Yrs Lynne. Acknowledged with thanks.

  3. Hi Brian

    I am researching James Connelly/Connelly on the Atlas – tried at Meath – sentence life. I presume that he was part of the 1787 Rebellion as Peter Mayberry show him as an Irish Rebel. I wonder if you have been able to unearth any details of the trial of the Meath men and women – Heath Assizes at Trim? Any help with James trial and or voyage, if that is how the journey in that hell hole would be labelled, would be great
