Australian Immigration Collection 1788-1923 is now Online – John CUMPSTONE

Australia’s immigration records from 1788 to 1923 are going online for the first time as a package charting more than 14.5 million journeys to the new colony. Included on the web site are passenger lists, musters, census information and other documents from the period, assembled from microfilm in state record offices and archives.

I found my John CUMPSTONE recorded sailing on the vessel Neptune, convicted on 16 August 1787  and sailing in December 1789 to New South Wales.  He was convicted in Westmorland.  You can read more about him on my website
