Biographies

James Lucas arrived at Port Jackson NSW per 'Admiral Barrington' 16 October 1791 after leaving Portsmouth England 27 March 1791. Several sources state he was tried at Sussex 1789 while Barbara Turner (Australia's 3rd Fleet, 1992) states he was tried at Warwick(?shire) 1789 with other details the same. He was sentenced to 7 years transportation and some while after arriving at Port Jackson he was transported to Norfolk Island where he arrived 23 April 1792 and where he cohabited with another convict there Ellen Wainwright (Prince of Wales 1788). Their union produced a daughter Mary Ann Wainwright (known as Lucas in later life reports) who was born 14 January 1795 on Norfolk Island. James died shortly after this birth 14 March 1795. Ellen was living with another convict Thomas Guy (Matilda 1791) before 1800 when 3 more children were born to her.
