Convict Ships to New South Wales in 1835


Sixteen Convict Ships set sail from England and Ireland bound for New South Wales in 1835.   Many of the English prisoners on these vessels were tried in the Central Criminal Court and incarcerated at Newgate prison to await transportation......

The Old Bailey - We shall never forget the mingled feelings of awe and respect with which we used to gaze on the exterior of Newgate in our schoolboy days. How dreadful its rough, heavy walls, and low massive doors appeared to us - the latter looking as if they were made of the express purpose of letting people in, and never letting them out again. Then the fetters over the debtors' door, which we used to think were a bone fide set of irons, just hung up there for convenience sake, ready to be taken down at a moments notice, and rivetted on the limbs of some refractory felon!

Often have we strayed here in sessions time, just to catch a glimpse of the whipping place, and that dark building on one side of the yard, in which is kept the gibbet, with all its dreadful apparatus........read more of the Old Bailey published in the Sydney Monitor in 1835
