Hougoumont ship - is this the ex-convict transport ship?
Posted by icemaiden on 27 August 2012
Does anyone know if this is the Hougoumont that was the last ship to transfer convicts from England to Western Australia?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houg-
oumont_(ship) Wikipedia says that most images are of a 4-masted ship built later than this one. But an image similar to this one appears in an article which says it is the convict ship and the observer saw it at a later date in Deal - see http://www.gutenberg.org/files/33148 then select '33148h', 'images' and 'ill 030.png'.
If it is that one, what happened to it next?

Its my impresseion from reading the Wikipedia article about the Hougoumont that this is it. This is Hougoumont. Im reading the book "Last of the wind ships" by Alan J Villiers (1934) where this ship is mensioned.
