IMMIGRANT SHIPS to WELLINGTON 1839-1899

Journal by ngairedith

Below is a list of immigrant ships with the arrival dates to Wellington, New Zealand up until December 1899 that I HAVEN'T GOT passenger lists for.
If a ship is not listed here, please assume I have a list ...

I am interested only in the WELLINGTON district arrivals at this time, although they may have called at other ports first.

Do you know of any passengers that arrived on these vessels or have you found a passenger list for them ...
I would appreciate your help - thank you

EUTERPE - left London 25.10.1891, arrived Wellington 8.2.1882
A MESSAGE RECEIVED 28th August 2010
from Charles A "Chuck" BENCIK ...
I retired from *San Diego Maritime Museum as Librarian in 2002. During my 5 years in that job I discovered that in the book "Star of India Log of an Iron Ship" (a book about the immigrant ship Euterpe by Jerry MacMullen - first printed 1961), that he made a mistake: the voyage listed in the appendix in the back as "London - [dep] Oct. 19, '81 - [To] Wellington [Returned to] Liverpool" did not happen as listed. Euterpe did not go to Wellington and never did arrive at Wellington in February of 1882. Euterpe instead went to Sydney, Australia, then to Newcastle, Australia, to San Francisco, then to London, returning around 1st March 1884. The story of that voyage (I wrote it) is in the Maritime Museum's Quarterly, "Mains'l Haul", entitled A Tragic Chapter Revealed Vol. 33:No. 4: pages 32-39. If you want to find names of persons who sailed on Euterpe/Star of India, simply go to this site: the EUTERPE/Star of India Index
Incidentally, the library at the Maritime Museum in San Diego has a complete collection of all the newspapers from the various ports she sailed to, to which immigrants arrived and each paper gives a list of passenger names and other details about those voyages. The Librarian's name is Dr. Kevin Sheehan and he is a very friendly Aussie. Good Luck!

OCEAN MAIL - 2.2.1874 - Brought 323 immigrants (245 adults). 5 children died of whooping cough & also had 3 cases of scarlatina on board. At one o'clock the Luna went off, having the health officer and the immigration officer and others on board. On reaching the Ocen Mail and hearing the report she was not boarded but was ordered into quarantine immediately and was towed over to Somes Island. A good deal of anxiety was evinced when it was seen from town that the yellow jack was run up to the masthead but by 7pm people were relieved to hear that the disease was not of a more serious character. Fresh provisions were sent on board for the comfort of the immigrants and the passengers were finally landed from quarantine 9th Feb

I'm interested in ships photos/pictures.

Avalanche

My mother-in-law's HUGHES came out on the Avalanche from Kent, England. They even named their 7th child who was born and died on the ship 'Avalanche'. A common practice.

The HARRIS' in my tree came out on Slains Castle.

Thank you Ally,
The AVALANCHE is very useful - the only Slains Castle I can find on that yesteryears link was for 1841

The emigrants collection online - Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa

Site has a painting by William Allsworth depicting James Mackay and family in Scotland, shortly before they emigrated to Nelson, New Zealand via the chartered ship Slaines Castle.

Finally found the actual passenger list of assisted immigrants!

Avalanche 1875

Left Gravesend on 22 October, 1874 and arrived at New Plymouth on 21 January, 1875.

Think you should have a separate journal. Thank you for your time and efforts.

Alison.

I'm looking for a Frances Lawrence (aged 16) on the Waitara in 1877-1879.

... AN UPDATE ...
Please read the message from Chuck Bencik about the voyage of the EUTERPE to Wellington in February 1882 (see above list)

For ngairedith and all who looked at my first posting:

I am going to FamilyTreeCircles and asking that the Moderator delete, that is to say, remove totally the first submission I sent. I confused two of the voyages of the Ramsey IOM iron hull 1863 EUTERPE, claiming that part of the material in the Euterpe page was flawed. That is possibly still the case, in my mind, but I have to be more clear, and do more research into my survey of her logs and papers before I put out any comprehensive claims about our EUTERPE.

I feel very sure that EUTERPE, "our EUTERPE/launched 1863 at Ramsey IOM," made a London Voyage departure October 19, 1881, to Wellington, and that she subsequently went to Lyttelton, Dunkirk, and finally arrived at London on Sept. 7, 1882.

Her next voyage in late 1882 and 1883 was to Sydney and Newcastle, AUS, and NOT to Wellington, NZ, as published by MacMullen.

That voyage began from London on Oct. 9, 1882 and she made a stop at Plymouth for additional passengers and the usual medical inspections, then arrived at Sydney harbor Feb. 6, 1883; was placed in quaranteen due to a very bad outbreak of scarlet fever and the deaths of 10 persons aboard, including the ship's steward; sailed March 16, 1883 for Newcastle, clearing Sydney Heads on 19.3.1883; departed Newcastle 27.4.1883 with 992 tons coal; was in San Francisco September 1883; and arrived at Liverpool March 3, 1884.

Readers of the MacMullen book, "Star of India, Log of an Iron Ship" need to be cautious about the Appendix, pp. 127 ff, entitled "VOYAGES AND MASTERS, EUTERPE/STAR OF INDIA" which is extremely flawed. In particular, MacMullen listed the destinaton of EUTERPE for her October 9, 1882 departure from London, as being to Wellington, thence to Liverpool. THIS DESTINATION OF WELLINGTON (expected to occur in 1883) was incorrect, and the record on that was only recently corrected. MacMullen's appendix is rife with names of masters misspelled, departure and arrival date errors, and arrival and departure port lists incomplete or simply in error. MacMullen's first edition was published in 1961, and a large amount of new material has been received on the career of 1863 Euterpe.

I direct all to my article in Maritime Museum of San Diego's quarterly, MAINS'L HAUL, Fall 1997 issue, p. 32 ff., entitled "A Tragic Chapter Revealed: EUTERPE's 1883 Voyage to Sydney."

My household is minus my better half at the moment, and I am rather tight with time, but I will post later, and attempt to reconcile the EUTERPE page of familytreecircles.com with our records in San Diego, as soon as I can this year.

Hi
My grandfather Niels Peter Nielsen arrived in Wellington 30 Dec 1889 on the Aorangi. He was single, age 18 & must have travelled from Denmark to London to catch the boat. In the next short while I plan to track down a copy of the Passengar List & will let you know when I have it.
Regards
Omajen

thank you for that Pip, much appreciated that you looked it up

however, that one arrived into Nelson on 7 Nov 1874 and is available on line.
The one I am (still) looking for arrived into Wellington 2 Feb 1874 and I have added a little info about its arrival (see list)

by yjsantos on 2013-03-23 01:45:39

My GG Grandfather John TUSTIN Wife and 4 children came on the 'OCEAN MAIL' to Wellington 2/2/1874. They were listed as 'JUSTIN' not 'TUSTIN'
I came across a full passenger list. What name were you looking for?
cheers YJS

My husband's great/great grandmother and her daughter came to Wellington on the "Hastings" on the 15/16 Feb 1858. The "Hastings" and other ships arriving in Wellington are listed om the website - angelfire.com/az/nzgenweb/ - but only a few small passenger lists are recorded. Also my husband's family appear on the trip out a year later - Oct 1859 - but that was not the case. A cousin of my husband has been trying for years to get a passenger list for the "Hastings" and so far the only one he has found was what i have mentioned above. Cheers, Judy
