The 430-ton convict ship ‘Scarborough’, along with ten other convict ships, arrived at Port Jackson, Sydney, Australia, around 7.30 pm 26th January 1788. Using her yards, she is now lowering her boat ready to disembark the convicts in Sydney Cove. ‘Scarborough’ anchored close in the South West corner of the Cove and the brig ‘Friendship’ was warped alongside. The ‘Prince of Wales and the ‘Borrowdale’ are anchored alongside each other further up the beach and the other ship in the painting, ‘Fishbourne’, anchored in the middle of the Cove. The rest of the fleet anchored further out with the two armed vessels, HMS ‘Supply’ and HMS ‘Sirius’ standing off the entrance to the Cove as a security measure.
