John Morgan R.N.
Convict Ship Surgeon
John Morgan R.N., was employed as Surgeon Superintendent on the convict ship Mary
to New South Wales in August 1819.
In October the Sydney Gazette reported that he was 'labouring under the deplorable calamity of violent mental derangement' and three fellow Royal Navy surgeons were assembled to assess his condition - Daniel Macnamara
, Lancelot Armstrong
and James Bowman
John Morgan departed the colony on the Tuscan in July 1820 under the care of surgeon James Marr Brydone
It may have been the same man who was employed as Surgeon Superintendent on the convict ship Captain Cook
to New South Wales in 1833
