Information for this title comes from a range of original source documents recounting early Australian History. It looks at the relationships and encounters that occurred between the early colonists and the Aborigines from 1788 onwards through to the late 1800s.
Part I, presented here, is taken from A Complete Account of the Settlement at Port Jackson by Watkin Tench, Captain of the Marines, who arrived in Australia with the First Fleet in 1788.
In all cases, the original spelling and grammar are left as is to preserve the authenticity of the information.
Future Parts of Early Aboriginal History will come from other similar original source documents. These stories are not in any particular order and will continue to be added to on an ongoing basis.
Warning: This chapter may contain the names and images of Aboriginal and Islander people now deceased.
