About Fellowship of First Fleeters


The Fellowship is an organisation comprised of descendants of those who arrived in Sydney Cove with the First Fleet on 26 January 1788.


The Fellowship was formed in 1968 and since then over 9079 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 or Government Official. Associate and Friend membership is also welcomed.


The Fellowship has its headquarters in "First Fleet House" at 105 Cathedral Street, Woolloomooloo, an historic section of Sydney, and has established 16 Chapters covering Sydney suburbs, regional NSW, Victoria, the ACT, Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania.


Additional Chapter formation is being encouraged. Chapter membership is available to bonafide Fellowship Members and Friends.
