First Fleet Convict List published in the Daily Mirror, 1969 - purporting to be from a fictional article in the London Gazette.

The names in this list cannot be relied upon. For the sourced list of known First Fleet convicts please go to our First Fleet Page.

Transcribed by Barbara Turner, 1992[1]

Capt. Arthur Phillip, R.N. was commissioned as the first Governor of New South Wales. He set sail on May 13th, 1787 from Portsmouth with 11 vessels. He arrived in N.S.W. with 717 convicts of whom 180 were women, guarded by 191 marines under 19 officers.

Note: The incorrect spellings of some place names is how they appeared in the newspaper. Some of those listed did not arrive in Australia as they either did not embark or died en route

From the "LONDON GAZETTE", October 1788

CONVICTS TRANSPORTED TO THE NEW COLONY Your Correspondent looks to our Readers and has ascertained as far as possible the names of those who have been convicted of crimes in the Country of England since 1783 and have been sentenced by His Majesty's Judges to be sent to that part of New Holland known as New South Wales Your Correspondent looks to our Readers for their indulgence to involuntary errors and omissions, and trust general attention will secure us from trespassing on their kindness too often.

Hello Nat

There are several articles from fictional newspapers that were published in ‘real’ newspapers about the early fleets to Australia. I’ve created a FSP for each of them (still more to come) and linked those pages to the relevant fleet category. I was thinking they should all be nested together.

I was actually surprised we didn't have a category already. There is a Wikipedia category -

I meant to created the category for 'Australia, Fictional Newspapers' so I am happy to keep the pages I am working on there so if you want to delete the higher level I’m fine. Understand most of the comic type papers would not be appropriate on Wikitree.

The articles I have purport to be ‘real;’ so I am trying to ensure researchers know they are not accurate sources.


The Fictional Newspapers category in Wikipedia contains such things as "The Daily Planet," where Clark Kent (Superman) worked. We have no need for a main category such as this, as we use real sources, not fictional ones. I think your case of fiction being reported by legitimate papers is sort of special and unique. It's fine to stay as part of your project.

Thanks! Natalie

Hi Veronica,

We don't need a category for fictional newspapers, so if you want to make this part of the project pages or sources or genealogy references for Australia project, that would be more appropriate. Regards, Natalie
