whaling ports in New South Wales, Australia

Hi, I'm look for any information on my ggrandfather John F. Roberts who was a whaler in the 1820-1850's. He is from Wales, England and from what I understand, prisoners, as they were called, from Wales and throughout England were shipped to New South Wales in the 19th century by the British government. I am also wandering if anyone on this site has done research on these people who came to the ports of Sydney, Australia from England. It makes sense that this part of Australia is called New South Wales. Would appreciated hearing from anyone who's done this kind of research.
