William Carr arrived in New South Wales as a convict on the ship ‘Royal Admiral’  It set sail from Portsmourth 5 July 1830 with 193 male convicts.  Arriving in Sydney 8 November 1930.  The voyage took 126 days and there were no deaths on board.  The ships master was David Fotheringham and the surgeon George S Rutherford.  During the voyage 40 convicts were picked up in Bermuda causing ‘mutinous’ behavior among the convicts.  This resulted in punishments including bread and water rations, put in double irons or handcuffs and flogging.  The normal diet of the convicts was 2/3 rations of the soldiers on board and were allowed meat each day.  They took excercis on deck and if well behaved were allowed to be free of their irons during this time.
