Lady Juliana

Convict ship of 401 tons which sailed from Plymouth bringing 226 female convicts and had a reputation as a floating brothel. John Nicol wrote of the convicts on board: 'There were not a great many very bad characters; the greater number were for petty crimes, and a great proportion for only being disorderly, that is, street-walkers; the colony at the time being in great want of women'.

The second fleet convict transport Lady Juliana, brought over 200 women to the new colony of New South Wales. It was the first female-only transport to arrive in Australia and the first ship to arrive after the first fleet. The women disembarked in comparative good health to those who followed.
