ADM 101/41/9
Medical and surgical journal of the Lady of the Lake female convict ship for 2 May to 6 November 1829 by William Evans, surgeon, during which time the said ship was employed in conveying convicts from England to Van Dieman’s Land.

On 30 September 1829, Christiana McDonald, a convict, aged 18, fell overboard, in endeavouring to save her cap, which was blown into main channels. The ship was going through the water at the rate of eight knots at the time. The helm was instantly put down, and a boat lowered, but she sunk almost immediately.
