About Fellowship of First Fleeters


Who we Are

We are an organisation comprised of descendants of those who arrived in Sydney Cove with the First Fleet on 26 January 1788 & also those interested in the First Fleet.


The Fellowship was formed in 1968, and since then over 9167 descendants have established their lineage, and joined the Fellowship. Links have so far been established in 137 families to no fewer than 195 individual First Fleet Ancestors. There are currently over 1650 active members.



Membership is open to anyone who can prove his or her relationship to a First Fleeter Convict, Marine, Seaman, Civilian (including Wives & Children) or Government Official.


Additionally, Associate and Friend memberships are also welcomed.
