Surgeon Joseph Steret

Joseph Steret joined the Camden on 11 September at Deptford. On 13th the ship moved down to Woolwich where he examined one hundred convicts at their respective hulks - on 14th he examined 60 men at the Justitia, 20 on the Discovery and 20 at the Ganymede. They were all received on board the same day.

On Saturday 15th September they weighed anchor for Sheerness arriving there the next day. On the following day received 100 men on board from various hulks.

Most of the men were young and healthy however Joseph Steret remarked that his 'friends' on the hulk had managed to deceive him into receiving several prisoners with leg ulcers.

He remarked:

It is perhaps worthy to note that only two out of two hundred expressed any unwillingness to go, one on account of his wife and family, the other merely that he did not wish to leave England, all the rest were happy at the prospect of quitting the country, and for or five whom I was obliged to reject on account begged vehemently to be permitted to go on board.

They sailed from Sheerness on Saturday 22 September 1832

On 30 September 1832 there was a gale of wind against which they struggled for four or five days but were obliged to bear up for Plymouth where they anchored on 5th October. The prisoners suffered severely from seasickness and the guard were almost as bad. A child, one of the guard, almost died, however by good nursing he was saved and on the following day was observed by the surgeon dancing about the decks as usual. Three people were wounded from falls during the gales.[1]


Departure from England

They departed Plymouth on 13th October 1832.

In December after almost three months at sea, the change in climate together with some wet and blowing weather caused a great variety of disease. The effects of the confinement of food also began to be felt by the convicts.[1]


In January they were round the Cape of Good Hope and continued running on the same parallel. Symptoms of sea scurvy began and did not abate until they reached their destination and procured fresh supplies.[1]
