1790 The Second Fleet
The Second Fleet comprised six ships: one Royal Navy escort, four convict ships, and a supply ship; however, not all sailed at the same time. The three main convict vessels (Surprize, Neptune, and Scarborough) left England on 19 January 1790 with 1,006 convicts on board. They made one stop at the Cape of Good Hope and took on 20 male convicts, survivors from HMS Guardian. The three vessels arrived at Port Jackson in June 1790.
