In 1826 the brig Amity set sail from Sydney to establish a penal settlement at King George's Sound, in what was then unclaimed territory, to prevent a possible French claim.  Under the command of Major Lockyer the settlement of 'Frederick's Town' was proclaimed.

Sweetman provides a detailed list of the personnel, military and convict, who first settled there until it came under the control of the Swan River Colony in 1831.
