Peter Carey - LIFE STORIES
 
 
1/26/1788     Convicted Australians
On this day in 1788 Captain Arthur Phillip brought the first British convict ships to anchor in Botany Bay, New South Wales, Australia. Over the next eighty years 825 such ships would bring 160,000 men and women to serve their "transportation" sentence; from this history has come "Australia Day" and a range of literature, and convictcentral.com, where Australians can search for a founding father-crook in their family tree.
