In part:

"Job Joseph (or Joseph as he preferred) was the son of convict First Fleeter James Bradley, hence Joseph's assertion to being "a native of Australia". Born circa 1809, he went to sea as a boy to learn the maritime arts. By about 1825, he was engaged in the colonial Sperm Whale Fishery out of Sydney. In the early 1830s, he was in succession second and first mate of the whaling barque Lynx. He progressed to the command of several other whaling vessels. Twenty years on, he was sailing master of the schooner Ariel, the tender to the ill-fated Wanderer. The Lynx and Ariel episodes were seen by Bradley as such high points of his career that he laboriously wrote them down and had them printed by Beukers."
