A fascinating collection, this consists of registers and letter books of prisoners on convict prison hulks in England between 1802-1849. The hulks’ place in harbors also made it easier to hold and transport convicts being sent to Australia. The collection contains a letter book relating to the establishment of hulks written from 1847-1849 and the registers of prisoners on 19 different hulks between 1802-1849 – a total of about 200,000 records. Many of the 200,000 convicts held on board the floating prisons were awaiting transportation to Australia, but the hulks were unable to go to sea, having been stripped of their masts, rigging and rudders, and instead fitted with prison cells. The records will be of use to family and social historians, and anyone with an interest in the UK penal system.

In this compelling volume, leading historians explore why 1942 was such a pivotal year in Australia's history, and explain how the nation confronted some of its greatest challenges. A hulk is a decommissioned ship that is either technologically out of date or cannot make it through the open sea without taking on water, but is still able to float without problems.


The first prison hulks in England appeared after a 1776 act allowed them to be used to house prisoners. Those covered are: Bellerophon, Captivity, Coromandel, Cumberland, Discovery, Dolphin, Establishment, Euryalus, Fortitude, Ganymede, Hardy, Justitia, Laurel, Leviathan, Perseus, Portland, Prudentia, Retribution, Warrior, and York (pictured). Disease was rife and spread quickly as there was no way to separate the sick from the healthy in the cramped conditions. They detail the rather bleak conditions that those who fell foul of the law would have found themselves in.
I have a relative who was a steward on the above vessel and am looking for any information regarding this.

There were many of these ships available when engines started to power ships instead of sails, so the hulks were moored in harbors and used as floating prisons or for other purposes. Australia 1942 provides a unique and in-depth exploration of the controversy surrounding the potential for invasion.
Japanese and Australian historians offer perspectives on Japanese military intentions and strategies towards Australia and the south Pacific.
Generously illustrated, it is essential reading for anyone interested in one of Australia's most decisive and critical years.
