The earliest group of permanent settlers to arrive in Australia from Britain has come to be known as the First Fleet. This group of 11 ships, packed with convicts and free settlers, set sail from England in May 1787 and landed at Botany Bay in January of 1788. Soon after, they moved to the more sheltered harbor at Port Jackson, which fleet leader Captain (later Admiral) Arthur Phillip (1738-1814), renamed Sydney cove. This was the first European colony in New South Wales and marked the beginning of convict transportation to Australia.
