Prince Regent 1821
Captain Francis Clifford. Surgeon Alexander Taylor
Surgeon Superintendent on the Prince Regent, Alexander Taylor R.N., kept a Medical and Surgical Journal from 21 June 1820 to 17 January 1821
He joined the Prince Regent on 21 June 1820 at Deptford and sailed to Cork to pick up convicts.
On the 13th July 1820 a detachment of the 1st Royal Scots under orders of Lieut. Lewis, arrived as guards and on the 20th August 1820, twenty-eight convicts were received on board from Dublin by the transport brig Atlas. The following day another 104 convicts were received from the Cork depot. Another five were received 25-31 August. In total 144 prisoners were embarked.
They weighed anchor at 5am on 19 September 1820. Trinidad was sighted on the 3rd November 1820.
There was some fighting amongst prisoners on the voyage out. Surgeon Taylor punished the offenders by putting them in handcuffs. Several men were also insolent and critical of the rations that were provided however there is no mention of any harsher punishments and Alexander Taylor delivered all 144 prisoners in a healthy state when the vessel arrived in Sydney on 9 January 1821. The voyage took 112 days.
On Monday 15th January the prisoners were mustered and inspected by the Colonial Secretary and on Tuesday 16th January, the prisoners were all up and had a complete suit of clothing issued to each of them by an Officer from the Deputy commissary General Department. On the 17th the men were all disembarked early in the morning. They were inspected by the Governor at 10am.
He was assigned to Lt John Wild who after discharge from the regiment was appointed Principal Overseer of Government Stock at Cawdor. He was granted 2000 acres on Werriberri Creek near The Oaks which he named ‘Vanderville’.
