Historical Records Relevant to the "MARQUIS of ANGLESEA"

Disembarkation Return of the Detachment Undermentioned, Dated Perth 24 August 1829:
 

Detachment: 63rd Regt.
From What Station: Chatham, England
On Board What Ship: Marquis of Anglesea

Remarks: One child born on Board on the 12 August 1829. Battye Library Acc 36 Vol/159


From Dr Alexander Collie's Journal:

    "September 7, 1829.  During a gale from the westward on the night of September 3, the ship Marquis of Anglesea (352 tons) which had lately arrived (on August 23rd under the command of Captain W Stewart) with 130 settlers on board and anchored in Gage Roads close to the mouth of the Swan River, drove on shore, bilged and filled with water; all hands were saved with part of the cargo that remained unloaded.  This with the previous driving of the Calista shows that Gage Roads, at this season is not safe and may occasion the establishment of another sea-port in Cockburn Sound."

From a Letter by Captain W.T.Dance of HMS Sulphur dated 9th September 1829:

"The Marquis of Anglesea drove with three anchors ahead in a gale of wind and going onto the rocks southward of the entrance of the river, was bilged and I fear, can never be got off.
