Book Description

April 7, 2001 031223211X 978-0312232115
This study explores the pre-history of Irish convict transportation to New South Wales that began with the Queen in April 1791. It traces earlier attempts to revive the Trans-Atlantic convict trade and frustrated efforts by Irish authorities to join in the Botany Bay scheme after 1786. The nine Irish shipments to North America and the West Indies are described in detail for the first time, including the dramatic outcomes in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and the Leeward Islands.
