The Convict Ship Atlas Voyage of 1801-1802

She sailed from Ireland on 29 November 1801. She arrived at Rio de Janeiro on 2 February 1802, and also stopped at the Cape. Atlas arrived at Port Jackson on 7 July 1802.

Atlas embarked 151 male and 63 female convicts. Twenty-eight male and two female convicts died on the voyage; others died just after disembarkation. Governor Philip Gidley King censured Brooks for this high death rate, which was the result of his negligence and the overcrowding that his transport of his personal cargo caused. Thomas Jamison, Atlas's surgeon, charged Brooks with assault in a civil action, and the transport commissioners threatened to prosecute him, but Brooks escaped punishment.
