On 10 March 1812 the Archduke Charles, Captain Jeffreys, sailed from Gravesend for Cork (Ireland) and departed 15 May 1812. Her voyage went via Rio de Janeiro and Cape of Good Hope to arrive at Port Jackson (Sydney) on 13 February 1813. It was a voyage of 9 months, delayed by rudder problems. Passengers and military guard included Lieutenant John Burbridge and Lieutenant Philip Connor of the 1st Battalion, 73rd regiment, with a detachment of thirty non-commissioned officers and privates to join the Battalion.
