The ARETHUSA to New Zealand
Ship: 1272 tons
Captain: John H Stiven
Surgeon Superintendent: Dr Edward Husband
Sailed: Plymouth 3 Sep 1879
Arrived: Wellington 7 Dec 1879

Evening Post, 8 Dec 1879
ARRIVAL of the ship ARETHUSA
~ with 375 Immigrants ~

The fine ship Arethusa, under command of Captain J. H. Stiven and chartered by the N.Z. Shipping Company, arrived in harbor with the change of wind last night. Captains Rose and Holliday, with Dr Johnston and Mr Redwood, went on board and, after examination, reported the passengers all well. The captain reports leaving Plymouth on third September and had fine weather till crossing the Line on 8th October; the Cape was passed on 3rd November and Tasmania on the 29th; Farewell Lighthouse was made on the 6th and she anchored at the Heads on Sunday morning till the wind changed last night, when she was brought in by Pilot Holmes. The passage was particularly find throughout. The health of the passengers was very good. Four deaths occurred during the first seven weeks - one adult and three infants. There were also four births, one of which was stillborn and twins prematurely. All the immigrants, excepting about 70, are nominated; about 50 go to Wanganui by the 'Stormbird' to-night and the Manawatu takes a like number to Foxton to-morrow. Those for Wellington will be landed by the 'Moa' to-morrow morning.

IMPORTANT NOTES
* The ages people gave to immigration back then were usually adjusted, if necessary, to suit the 'requirements' of immigration. NZ expected that young, healthy people would populate the country, therefore most older immigrants dropped a few years off their birth age to be allowed to emigrate. Best to remember that when reading the list below and use their birth dates as a guide only to your own research.
* The spelling of some names probably differs from how we spell them today
* Apart from wives and very young children, all immigrants had to list an occupation. Most men listed Labourer and single women chose Servant, Dairymaid etc. Immigrants could (and did) turn their hand to anything, so writing their 'occupation' here is demeaning and not at all indicative of their abilities, which is why I have not added them
* People with the same surnames, grouped together here, may not always mean they were related
