Notes on the "STAG"
Stag - arrived in WA in 1855
This 678 ton barque was built at Sunderland in 1842. It was employed as a convict transport for Western Australia and left London, England on February 5, 1855 bound for the Swan River Colony.
She carried the
fourteenth of 37 shipments of male convicts destined for Western Australia. The voyage took 107 days and the Stag arrived in Fremantle on May 23, 1855 with 89 passengers and 255 convicts [Erickson]. H.N. Clarke and Jos. Caldwell were the captain and surgeon respectively.
There were no deaths recorded on the convict shipping and description
lists and 225 convict numbers were assigned for the voyage ranging from (3220 to 3444). The [Erickson] figure of 255 convicts would seem to be a typographical error and the [Bateson] account also varies with a claimed that 225 convicts embarked and only 224 arrived. Of the 89 passengers mentioned above, all 89 were pensioner guards and
their families, the number being made up of 30 pensioner guards, 24 wives, 17 sons and 18 daughters.
A copy of H.N. Clarke's captain's log for the voyage is preserved in the Battye Library in Perth, Western Australia. Researchers can only view it in Perth.
