* NOTE : It is not known what happened to the women who were captured on the EMU. It is most probable that they were released by the Americans. James McClelland, OAM.

UPDATE: It is believed that "The ship Emu in 1812 with 40 female convicts and crew was hijacked by American privateers during the voyage from England to the Colony of New South Wales. The women and crew were left on the sparsely populated Cape Verde Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. After help arrived, they were taken back to England and placed on board the ship Broxbornebury in 1814. With a total of 120 convicts on board, 70 crew, many free families and some well-to-do passengers, the ship set sail for Sydney."
