ship "COUNTESS of KINTORE" into HAWKES BAY 1875

Journal by ngairedith

from the site Countess of Kintore

the following is the names & ages of the passengers which left London on 18 March 1875 and arrived in Hawkes Bay 8 June 1875
- further information on the passengers is available at above link -


... The Countess was described as an Aberdeen clipper, built in 1866 by Duthie. She came out to the several ports under charter to the Shaw, Savill Co., and, as will be seen from her records, made some fast passages for a vessel of 700 tons. Keen efforts were being made in those days to acclimatise European birds in New Zealand, and several shipments were entrusted to the care of Captain Petherbridge (a well known Captian of the Countess), who took a personal interest in the matter. In 1870 he brought out in the Countess of Kintore 50 rooks, which were landed at Auckland in splendid condition. In 1876 thirteen salmon were brought out to Lyttelton by the Countess, which was then in command of Captain Norie.

What does Colonial Nominated mean? Did I miss it in journal?

by janilye on 2011-08-10 10:34:49

they were nominated for immigration by people already living in New Zealand.

by ngairedith on 2011-08-10 10:38:55

It meant that the person's passage was 'nominated' by someone already
living in New Zealand
Normally, to qualify for assistance from the provincial govts of NZ as a migrant, you had to fill certain criteria to have part of your passage paid. In the case of nominated migrants, the nominator paid some of the fare and the provincial government some. The shipping logs often say how much was paid by whom for each person's passage.

oh, I see you already answered ... thank you janilye
