Master William Dale. Surgeon Harry Goldney and Walter Lawrance
The male convict ship, Randolph, departed England with 300 prisoners bound for Port Phillip and Sydney.
The Guard (including boys and women) amounted to 66 persons belonging to the 11th and 58th Regiment and there was a crew of 50.
The prisoners were embarked on 12th, 14th, 17th, 18th and 26 April, and disembarked at Sydney on 23-25, 27 August 1849. In consequence of the death of Surgeon Superintendent Harry Goldney, the Randolph put into Simon's Bay on the 4th July for medical assistance and Walter Lawrance was appointed to her on the 5th July 1849.
The Randolph arrived at Port Phillip on 8 August 1849 with 295 male prisoners, however they were refused permission to land. The Courier (Hobart) reported the incident - The Randolph, W. Dale, from Woolwich 28th April with exiles and a detachment of the 58th and 11th regiments, arrived at Port Phillip on the 8th instant, and notwithstanding an order had been given by Mr. Latrobe, that no convict vessel should pass the Heads, the Randolph was anchored at William's Town. Intelligence has arrived via Launceston that public demonstrations had been made against their landing, and it was reported that £500 had been subscribed to defray the cost of conveying the exiles elsewhere, and that the ship was to proceed to Sydney. During the passage of the Randolph from England to the Cape, the Surgeon Superintendent in a fit of insanity threw himself overboard and was drowned.
Medical and Surgical Journal kept from 5 July to 28 August 1849.
