Description:

Fine and very detailed etching of the convict ship, Surry in Sydney Harbour, by the famous marine print maker and historian, Geoffrey Ingleton, unnumbered but 114 from an edition of only 150, signed lower right in ink.

Surry was a convict transport ship to Australia making eleven voyages. She brought 2,177 convicts, male and female, and so became one of the best-known of the vessels that visited Australia. In all, she lost 51 men and one woman during her various passages, 46 of the men dying during her first and most notorious voyage in 1814 when she was under the command of James Patterson.

She was a square-rigged transport ship of 443 tons burthen. She had an overall length of 117 ft. 6 ins., a breadth above the gunwales of 29 ft. 6 ins, and a draught, when loaded, of 18 ft. She was copper-sheathed, and had quarter galleries, with a bust of Minerva for a figurehead. She was built in 1811.

Geoffrey Chapman Ingleton (1908 - 1998)

Ingleton was a maritime historian and eminent hydrographer who in his early life was an officer in the Royal Australian Navy. He reached the rank of Lieutenant-Commander. Ingleton's diverse interests were always centred on things maritime. He was a cartographer, author, artist, etcher, ship modeller, book collector and publisher. He acquired an enormous collection of books and periodicals, maps, photographs, ships' log books and nautical charts.
