    of the convict guard on board the ship "Friendship" prior to its departure from England. Following his arrival he served a part of Captain John Shea's Company. On the 1st of April he enlisted in the Royal New South Wales Corps, by November of the same year he had died ,cause unknown.

    It is not know whether any of his family settled or if he had any family in Australia.

    Nation: RST: Soldier. RM: Collins C/D: On Sunday the 15th died James Nation (sic), a soldier in the New South Wales corps, into which he had entered from the marine detachment. He sunk under an inflammatory complaint brought on by hard drinking. With this person Martha Todd cohabited at the time of her decease, which, as before related, was occasioned by the same circumstance, and which, together with her death, Nation had been frequently heard to say was the cause of much unhappiness to him. arr Alexander 1788, Private - Royal Marines 11th (Portsmouth) Company. C/D
