9781856359818: Wreck of the Neva: The Horrifying Fate of a Convict Ship and the Irish Women Aboard
The Neva sailed from Cork on January 8,1835, destined for the prisons of Botany Bay. There were 240 people on board, most of them either female convicts or the wives of already deported convicts, and their children. On May 13, 1835 she sank with the loss of 224 lives. The authors have comprehensively researched sources in Ireland, Australia, and the UK to reconstruct in fascinating detail the stories of these women. Most perished beneath the ocean waves, but for others the journey from their poverty stricken and criminal pasts continued towards hope of freedom and prosperity on the far side of the world.
