Prisoners and passengers of the Mariner identified in the Hunter Valley


The Mariner was built at Whitby 1807.[1] She made three voyages to Australia with convicts - 1816, 1825 and 1827.


Dublin

Some of the women who were embarked on the Mariner may have been held in the Richmond General Penitentiary which had been established in 1820 at Grangegorman, Dublin as an alternative to transportation. It was part of an experiment into a penitentiary system to specialise in reform rather than punishment.

There were accusations of unspeakable cruelty and proselytism and a Commission of Enquiry was ordered in 1826 in which Mary Connor, Ellen Dunn, Jane Armstrong, Mary Ryan, Mary Anne Williamson were mentioned as being inmates at the penitentiary in previous years.



Departure

The Mariner departed Cork on 2 March 1825 with 113 female convicts.


Surgeon Harman Cochrane

Harmon Cochrane kept a Medical journal from 30 December 1824 to 15 August 1825.

One woman died on the voyage out. She had suffered with asthma for some time and died suddenly before the surgeon could even attend her.

Harman Cochrane reported that about half the women suffered with epilepsy which became more apparent as the ship entered the tropics. He contemplated whether they might be real or feigned episodes. Some had suffered with fits before but many had never experienced them before. There was scarcely an hour either day or night when he was not called to attend one of them suffering this condition. He puzzled as to whether they may have been propagated by contagion or perhaps by imitation or, he thought more likely, the inordinate heat of the climate affected the irritable, sensitive and acute constitutions of the Irish prisoners. When five or six at a time were found to be affected and were writhing, struggling and tearing themselves to pieces at the same time, it became no easy matter to hold them and it required five or six strong women to do so. He mis-trusted the women however and thought they may have had ulterior motives. Although he was vigilant in observing their manoeuvres, he could not detect any surreptitious designs. The fits abated when the ship entered the colder climate.

The Surgeon maintained cleanliness, order and regularity among the women. The prison was kept clean and dry and the women were allowed on the upper deck as they pleased. [2]

The following women were mentioned in the surgeon's journal -[3]
Margret McKenna, aged 27, convict: sickness at stomach, nausea and vomiting and slight pain in the epigastric region. Put on sick list, 28 February 1825 at Cove of Cork. Sent to the penitentiary at Cork per order of Dr. Trevor.

Convicts Disembarked

The convicts were kept on board until 18th July when they were disembarked and sent to Parramatta Female Factory. The unsatisfactory mode of conveying them to Parramatta was reported in the Sydney Gazette:

The female prisoners per the Mariner who arrived in a state of the best health, were drafted to Parramatta by water, on Monday last. We would beg to call the attention of HIM, who is said now to have the female prisoners in the Factory, committed to his more immediate care and guardianship to the custom of forwarding the women either by the passage boats or by the stage coaches. Though we are loth to lessen the advantages that may possibly accrue from this source of laudable gain, yet a due regard to moral feeling requires some other mode of conveyance, unless the boat, or the coach, could be engaged by Government solely for their accommodation, and then they should be escorted by individuals who would not betray the confidence necessarily reposed in them, as is too generally the case when given in charge of a constable who cares not what becomes of the unfortunate women so that he can laugh, and smoke, and drink. The scenes that have passed on these occasions, by the most correct information, beggar all possibility of description - indeed we dare not attempt the portrait. We have no doubt, there fore, that this monstrous evil will be for ever put a stop to - [4]
