    Richard Jones was the first to commence deep-sea whaling from New South Wales. By 1825 he was part-owner of five whalers, the Pocklington, Harriet, Mercury, Saracen and Alfred. However he was severely hit by the depression of 1842-44 and declared insolvent in November 1843. All his ships and estates were sold. Reference: Australian Dictionary of Biography, Vol.2.
