Alice Dean

F, #56628, d. 1839
     Alice Dean Alice Dean, was a straw bonnet maker. Alice and her remaining livingdaughter, Sarah, departed England for Sydney in 1838 to join herconvict husband in Van Diemen’s Land. The journey from Sydney toHobart on the 'Medway' took an extraordinary 5 weeks- there wereextremely bad storms and Master Wight had to take measures to protectthe passengers, one of whom was a VIP- Lady Jane Franklin, wife ofGovernor Franklin. Alice died during the journey, somewhere off NorthEastern Tasmania.

This event, and her interactions, with Sarah are recorded in Lady JaneFranklin’s journals.

Thursday 1st August
Snachall told me when bringing my breakfast, that the poor daft womanMrs Briggs had died about an hour before - It was only at dinneryesterday that I heard she was seriously ill, though some jokes hadbeen afloat for a day or two previously as to Mr Grant giving herMollison's pills, some times whole, sometimes pounded, sometimes in apowder by way of variety - I thought I would go and see her eitherafter dinner or next morning, but left it till morning - her complaintappears to have been inflammation of the bowels and she said all thru'her indisposition that she should die - at 12 o'clock I heard the belltoll, and took it to be a mark of decent respect to her memory, butpresently Mr Elliot knocked at my door and asked if I would be presentat the funeral. I made what haste I could to go on deck, where Captainand sailors and the women assembled and Mr Braim read the servicewhich he did very well -

Mrs Briggs had a little girl on board 11 or 12 years old she was saidto have behaved very ill to her mother and to have shown not the leastfeeling at her death - the child was present, was observed to watchvery attentively and to be affected at the disappearance of her motherin the waves - I sent for the child after dinner in my cabin and foundher very interesting and as I thought clever, expressing herself interms and in a manner beyond her years.

She did not express any sorrow at her mother's' death, but could havewished she had been buried on the land, she said -I mentioned at teathe favourable impression she had produced on me and then found thatall the gentlemen partly Wright, Grant, Braim and Elliot agreed inthinking her very bad child and Captain who was never mistaken - hesaid in anyone's countenance thought she had one of the worst he hadever met

Tuesday 6th/3 weeks
- had sick headache - read some of W. Scott - heard from Mr E. we hadgot 120 to 150 m. - E. but were not above 15 or 20 m. to N. of CapePillar - both he and Captain M. said if had got on 6 line in advancebefore wind changed should have got round Cape Pillar - At night thewind fall and we rolled more in the calm than before - having heardthat Sarah had put on her other frock and the pinafore she had madeherself and was very anxious to know if I should send for her (whichwas owing no doubt to Mt. Braim and M. Stanley having talked to her, Isent for her while in bed. She looked very tidy, with her hairbrushed back behind her ears - read to her made her read &c seeaccount of her -

Tuesday 13th
This day month left Sydney - at dinner, wind more to S. and someindication of approaching change, much knocked - had Sarah in evening,alluded to her ill conduct without mentioning particular in referringto nurse Mrs Stanley's baby child seemed sulky and on my asking herwhether she could answer me any questions as to yesterdays chaptersaid no - upon which I dismissed her, apply to her great satisfaction.

They eventually arrived in Hobart, passing Adventure Bay, BrunyIsland, on 19 August. Lady Franklin arranged for Sarah to beadmitted to the Orphan School and called in a few days later. Herjournal continued:

24 August 1839 page 167
l enquired for Sarah Briggs who arrived in the school yesterday andhas been scrubbed & washed & clothed afresh, operations which MrsGazard assured me were highly necessary. I sent for Sarah who seemedpleased to see me, but flung herself round a little when I gave hersome good advice.
Her married name was Briggs. She married Convict Isaac Briggs on 27 October 1821 at Halifax, Yorkshire, England. Alice Dean died in 1839 Alice, died between Sydney and Hobart Town in 1839.
