passengers of the "MARINER" - Gravesend to Nelson 23 April 1859

Journal by ngairedith

A list of the passengers on the MARINER which left Gravesend 1 Jan 1850 and arrived in Nelson, New Zealand on 23 April 1859 then sailed to Port Chalmers, Otago

some reports say there were 141 passengers
because some of these names were taken from a list when the "Mariner" arrived in Port Chalmers, I don't know if some of them embarked at Nelson or London

the "Nelson Examiner and New Zealand Chronicle" had a partial list on 27 April 1859
names are added as found
if you can help please leave a comment below
