The Countess of Harcourt's 1824 Convict Transportation to New South Wales

On her third voyage transporting convicts, she was under the command of George Bunn, with surgeon J. Dickson. She sailed from The Downs on 23 March 1824, and arrived at Port Jackson on 12 July.[22] She carried 174 or so male convicts; one convict died during the voyage.[21] One officer and 36 other ranks from the 40th Regiment of Foot provided the guards.

Countess of Harcourt left Port Jackson on 24 August with supplies and in company with HMS Tamar and HMS Lady Nelson. The 3rd Regiment of Foot provided a detachment of soldiers. The three ships were sailing to Port Essington to form a new settlement there. Port Essington proved unsatisfactory, and the expedition established a settlement at Fort Dundas. On 13 November 1824 Countess of Harcourt and Tamar departed. Countess of Harcourt sailed first to Isle de France (Mauritius), and from there to Britain. WIKIPEDIA
