Conditions in the colony were not conducive to the development of a thriving new metropolis, but the more regular arrival of ships and the beginnings of maritime trade (such as wool) helped to lessen the burden of isolation.

For much of the 1930s up to one in three breadwinners was unemployed.

The colony was at first to be titled "New Albion", after Albion in Great Britain, but Phillip decided on "Sydney".

The official proclamation and naming of the colony happened on 7 February 1788.

The local Darug people, led by Pemulwuy, raided farms until Governor Lachlan Macquarie dispatched troops from the British Army 46th Regiment in 1816.

These troops patrolled the Hawkesbury Valley and ended the conflict by killing 14 Indigenous Australians in a raid on their campsite.

That trade was ended with the Declaration of Independence by the United States in 1776.

Britain decided in 1786 to found a new penal outpost in the territory discovered by Cook some 16 years earlier.

Maps from this time show no prison buildings; the punishment for convicts was transportation rather than incarceration, but serious offences were penalised by flogging and hanging.
