Friendship (ship)

Friendship (ship)

"Friendship" was a First Fleet transport ship, built in Scarborough in 1784.This transport was a brig of 278 tons, making her the smallest of the transports. Her master was Francis Walton, and her surgeon was Thomas Arndell. She left Portsmouth on 13 May 1787, carrying seventy-six male and twenty-one female convicts. The female convicts were transferred to other transports at the Cape of Good Hope to make room for livestock purchased there. She arrived at Port Jackson, Sydney, Australia, on 26 January 1788. She left Port Jackson on 14 July 1788 in company with the "Alexander". This ship transported the quite famous convict Henry Kable.

The crews of both ships were so badly affected by scurvy off the coast of Borneo that enough healthy sailors remained for only one working ship, and the "Friendship" was scuttled.
