     A letter written by CAPTAIN C PURCELL - HISTORY OF HIS LIFE....1813-1891.

I was born on the 7th of January. My father was William Purcell veteran of the Royal Navy and crew member of HMAV Bounty. The ship made famous because of the mutiny against its Captain William Bligh. My father was the Carpenter and Senior Warrant Officer on board at the time of the Mutiny and along with Captain Bligh made the historic journey in the open life boat from the South Pacific to the Dutch East Indies.

When Old enough I attened Greenwich school, from there I was apprenticed for 7 years to be taught the art of seamanship, for the sum of $5 pounds and my clothing, under John Renwich Esq. of Newcastle. I was then 14 years old. Then bound for Jamaica in the Barque West Indies. Afterwards went to New York with emigrants. In July the cholera broke out on board. The Captain and one passanger died: we then put in Plymouth Sound in quarantine for 3 weeks. We then proceeded on our way to New York. On the banks of Newfoundland fell in with 3 icebergs and was nearly wrecked. We then arrived at New York, discharged our cargo and proceeded on our journey to Norfolk with lumber for Jamiaca. We reached Jamaica and loaded up with sugar for London. I made 8 voyages to London and back. Afterwards went to America and then went chief mate of James Daley to the West Indies in the Black River, came home. Then went mate to Africa in the Asula reaching the west coast of Africa where the Captain died with drink. I was then made Master and had to take her home, when Mr Foster owner of the vessel made me a present of $5 pound extra. I then took off a vessel for 2 years as Master. Then took Master of the Brig Mary bound for Cape Coast. When I went home, got command of the Nunez, then went to Sierra Leone, in the West Coast of Africa and back. Then got command of the Brig Jack, took Governor Top out to Cape Cope Castle. Then went home, got married at Stepney, England, to Jane Turpin Reynolds, daughter of John Reynolds, Collector of Cuastoms. I then laded Jack for Sydney and with the advice of Mr Foster, the ship's husband, I bought my wife with me to Sydney. Mr Smart sailed as chief Mate and he being so beastly drunk I was obliged to discharge him. Arrived all well in Sydney after a passage of 115 days in the year 41. Had the option of taking the vessel home again, but Mrs Purcell suffered so with sea sickness coming out, therefore I could not venture to take her home again, so they had to engage another master. My eldest daughter Jane was born on the 25th May in the year 41 in the ship Jack lying in Sydney Cove opposite the customs house.

I then left sea and went down the coast to Ulladulla and kept a store but did not succeed, then went to sea again, command of the Brig Bee bound for New Zealand with sheep. Went all over the North Island, lost anchorage chain at Nacci Nacci then went to Sydney. After that went Commander of Tobago to Melbourne, from Melborne to Launceston. At that time there was no fruit in Melbourne. Asked the price of Apples, they were 2/- per pound and no good at that. I made several trips to Launceston and found it would not pay. Saw Mr Thomas. He made up his mind to lay the vessel up, so he wrote me the following letter -
" As I find Tabago cannot be advantageously employed I don't require your service as Master any longer, therefore give up the ships papers to my son Charles. I have arranged with Captain Saunders of the Brig Christina for your passage back to Sydney."

So I saw Captain Saunders and took my departure for Sydney the next day. I waited on sure for 2 or 3 weeks -got nothing to do. I then went to the Macleay River to fit out a vessel for Captain John Watson. After 4 or 5 moths work came down to Sydney, then went in the Whaling Brig Genoa as sailing master on a whaling voyage which lasted 12 months. We got 300 barrels of oil.

I then went up country, reaching Goulburn where my second daughter, Harriet was born in the year 43.2
