The Lloyds transported convicts to Australia in 1833 (NSW), 1837 (NSW) and 1845 (VDL).

John Inches kept a Medical Journal from 9 August 1833 to 4 January 1834.

The Guard were embarked on the Lloyds at Deptford on 9th August. Lieutenant Enew of the 45th regiment and Lieutenant McKnight of the 21st Fusiliers in command together with twenty nine soldiers from various regiments. Five women and ten children came as passengers.  Select here to find convict ships bringing detachments of the 21st Fusiliers.

On the 13th August the Lloyds arrived at Woolwich and on the 14th and 15th, John Inches inspected 200 male prisoners on board the hulks Ganymede and Justitia who were then embarked on the Lloyds.  The surgeon remarked that a great many of them had not long recovered from cholera which gave them a sickly appearance.  Two prisoners were re-landed.

On the 17th they received Admiralty orders to proceed to the Downs which they reached on the 19th. They received orders to sail on the 24th August and weighed anchor on the 25th August 1833.

An article written in London was later published in the Sydney Monitor -

On Saturday morning the ship Lloyds, Thomas Ward, Esq., owner, left Woolwich for Sydney with 200 male convicts on board, who are under sentence of transportation for life and for 14 years. Among them are a number of the most desperate thieves, housebreakers, and swell-mob men who have, during their career, levied heavy contributions on the inhabitants of this great metropolis. A large ship called the Fairlie belonging to Mr. Ward, has been hired by Government, for the purpose of sending out 376 male convicts to the same colony - a larger number than has yet been sent away in a single vessel. She will sail in a few days; and, we understand, that his Majesty's Government do not intend to employ many convicts at the hulks and about the dock yards in future; but, in lieu thereof, those who may be hereafter convicted and sentence to transportation, will be sent to our penal settlements and be compelled to labour hard on the public works in the Colonies.

The Lloyds reached the tropics in eighteen days and from being a new ship and close on deck the surgeon was required to take precautions to keep the windsails going day and night to promote ventilation. The men were sent on deck for two hours every evening with the guard while they were in the tropics. They were fortunate to have fine weather all the way except for two days and it was seldom that the iron stoves were necessary.

One hundred and ninety-nine prisoners arrived on the Lloyds on 18th December 1833. They were mustered on board on 23rd December 1833.  One prisoner died at sea on the voyage out another was sent to hospital on arrival.

The information in the indents includes name, age, marital status, native place, where and when convicted, religion, family and physical description but does not include where and to whom the men were assigned on arrival. There are occasional notes regarding conditional pardons, tickets of leave, dates of death and colonial crimes.

Some of the convicts who were sent to the Hunter Valley were assigned to settlers such as Thomas Potter Macqueen, Helenus Scott and James Reid
