NSW Emigration Schemes: http://www.angelfire.com/al/aslc/immigration.html

Immigration during the first 65 Years of Australia's settlement was less spectacular than that of the Gold Rush era which started in 1851 and eventually led to the development of our manufacturing industries and our political system of democracy as well as our social structure. But in the years before the Gold Rush there developed a strong pastoral climate which created an effective economic organisation and enabled Australia to cope with the disruptions caused by the influx of gold seekers and to absorb the changes and to use them.

The different kinds of early immigration schemes were:

Convicts Free - there was a trickle at first which increased during Macquarie's time.

Soldiers and Marines, some of whom settled when their service time was up

The Government Schemes - 1822-1830 and 1837-1840

The Bounty Immigrants Scheme 1835-1841

The Assisted Immigrants Scheme in the 1840s and 1850s

The Gold Rush 1851
