Summary: The HMS Success was the ship in which Captain James Stirling first sailed to Western Australia to explore sites for a new colony in 1827. In 1829 it returned to begin settlement of the Swan River Colony, this time sailing under Captain William Jervoise. It ran aground on a sandbank in Cockburn Sound, which was later named Success Bank. This is a picture by an artist (possibly J. Whatman) of the Success undergoing repairs after this incident.
