With regards to the Coromandel and the Perseus, the cocnivt ships which sailed together from Spithead in 1802.  I have the sailing date of both ships, what happened on the voyage of the Perseus. I also have the break up of the cocnivts who sailed on each ship and also what happened to most of the cocnivts on the Perseus, after they arrived in Sydney Cove.  I have notes from the Log of the Perseus, especially the two days before they arrived in Port Jackson, which is very intersting indeed.  My husband’s ggg grandfather was John Pearce/Pearse, a 26 year old farmer from Eling near the New Forest in Hampshire, tried for poaching the Kings Deer in the New Forest, in the Great Hall in Winchester.  He was sentenced to death, which was commuted to transportation for Life. He was assigned to Lt, Nicholas Paget Bayley as his Hut Keeper and later he was assigned to Baron August Alt, the first Surveyor Gerneral of Lands in the Colony, who arrived on the First Fleet.  John became a Police officer, after his received his Conditional Pardon, he married another cocnivt Mary Lees (Friendship 1806), they had two sons Robert and Richard. After John received his Conditional Pardon, he became a Police Officer and served in the force for over 20 years, while his wife Mary ran the Freemason’s Hotel in Castlereagh Street in Brickfield Hill, which was built on his Land Grant.Cheers Janice
