IMMIGRANT SHIPS to WELLINGTON 1839-1899

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

p = I have only a partial list, please send anything you have

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

... A sudden death occurred on Saturday last at Waimea West. Mrs Russ, the wife of Mr Job Russ, the recent purchaser of the Bearcroft property, while engaged in moving the furniture into their new house, slipped in the verandah and fell, and in doing so it seems that she inflicted upon herself some internal injury. She complained of feeling unwell, and was in some pain, but it was not thought that anything serious was the matter until Saturday, when Mr Waring was sent for. On arriving at the house he at once saw that she was in danger, and returned to Richmond to telegraph for Dr Farrelle, but an hour later she expired. Mr and Mrs Russ had been residents in Waimea West for considerably over 25 years, and, together with their family of seven sons, have always been looked up to as respectable, industrious, and valuable settlers.

Have you heard of Foschazel Hamilton ?

First name Foschazel - maiden name unknown - married to Robert Hamilton - on the 1841 census in Newfield, Lanarkshire, Scotland with her son Michael Hamilton born 1830 in Strathaven, Lanarkshire, Scotland and daughter Margaret Hamilton born 1822.
By the 1851 census her and her daughter were not on the census with Robert and Michael.

A name like that should stand out for someone to recognise ...

JOHN SOUTHEE

Serge Poltoratzky (alternate spellings: Sergei or Sergey and Poltoratsky, Poltoratskii or Poltoratskiy), 1803-1884, was a Russian literary scholar, bibliophile and humanitarian.
His major literary work was the Dictionary of Russian Authors, which he worked on for decades.
He travelled extensively in Europe to find books and manuscripts needed for this work.
He was also interested in the letters of Voltaire and in Franco-Russian cultural relations.
He wrote articles for the French press on these and other literary topics, often under the pseudonym R.E. According to Yuri Druzhnikov,

Poltoratzky was the first to introduce Pushkin`s work to a western European audience, in the October 1821 issue of Revue encyclopedieque (published in Paris).

Serge Poltoratzky was the only son of Dimitry Poltoratzky and Anna Khlebnikova, who also had five daughters.
Serge was primarily educated by tutors at the family home, Avchurino, on the east bank of the Oka River in Kaluga Province (Kaluzhskaya Oblast), but he also spent a year at the Richelieu Lyceum in Odessa.
His parents were deeply interested in improving the material and social conditions of Russian serfs and peasants, and Serge inherited their commitment.
In 1812 the family hid in Avchurinos attics as Napoleons army looted the estate during their retreat from Moscow.

Serge came into his inheritance at the age of 15, when his father died in 1818.
At this time Serge was serving at court as a page to the Tsarina Elizaveta, wife of Tsar Alexander I. He later served in the Preobrazhensky Life Guards, according to his fathers and uncles wishes, but military life was not to his liking, and he soon resigned his commission, having reached only the lowly rank of praporshchik (often translated as ensign).
Thereafter he devoted himself primarily to literary pursuits.
Druzhnikov relates that after Poltoratzky`s 1921 article, which mentioned Pushkin`s poems Liberty and The Village and their criticism of Russian social conditions, appeared in France, he "was fired from his job and sent to live in the country under police supervision".
This job may have been the Life Guards position, and the episode glossed for his children as a voluntary resignation.

Poltoratzky was one of the wealthiest men in Russia.
He owned seven large estates, at least two houses in Moscow, and various smaller properties and investments.
All this wealth had been accumulated in a mere two generations, as both his grandfathers were commoners ennobled to the rank of potomstvenniy dvorianin (hereditary untitled gentleman), Piotr Khlebnikov for service to Russian literature, and Mark Poltoratzky for his singing voice.

All Serge Poltoratzkys paternal uncles married into the titled nobility.
His only aunt married Alexey Olenin, the first director of the Russian Imperial Library.
His mothers brother emigrated to the US, and the family lost touch with him during the 1796-1801 reign of Tsar Pavel I, who banned all foreign correspondence.

Poltoratzky married in 1831, but within a few years his wife mysteriously disappeared, having been last seen leaving their Moscow house on foot.
In 1843 he became engaged to Ellen Sarah Southee, 16 years his junior, and the daughter of an English gentleman farmer. She was related to poet Robert Southey.
Later that year Poltoratzkys first wife was legally declared dead, his mother died, and his second marriage took place.

From 1843 Poltoratzky made his home at Avchurino when not engaged in literary travels.
There he and his wife had three daughters and two sons, the eldest of whom died in infancy.

After the accession of the reform-minded Tsar Alexander II in 1855, many of the legal impediments to landowners freeing their serfs were removed.
Poltoratzky took advantage of these changes to free his thousands of serfs between the years 1856 and 1859.
In addition, he gave them land, livestock, tools and other goods to help them become self-supporting.
He also advised the Tsars Emancipation Committee, which was developing the terms of serf emancipation that would be enacted in 1861.

In 1859 Poltoratzky discovered that two of his estate managers had massively defrauded him. The men were tried and convicted, which might have enabled Poltoratzky to gain legal redress from the debts incurred on his behalf, but he did not pursue this possibility.
Around the same time it became known to the imperial government that Poltoratzky`s English wife had never converted to the Russian Orthodox church, and furthermore, that their children were being raised in the Anglican church.
While this was perhaps technically legal, so soon after the Crimean War it was utterly unacceptable socially, and in imperial Russia, social-political favor would have been essential to the family`s economic recovery.
Poltoratzky liquidated his assets in Russia, paid off his debts, and prepared to emigrate to France, where he had some untouched funds.

In 1860 the Poltoratzky family left Russia for good.
They went first to Charlottenburg, Prussia, where another son was born.
They then proceeded to Paris, where Serge had long maintained a pied--terre for use on his literary trips.
Thereafter the family divided their time between Paris and England, where the youngest son was born. P>Poltoratzky died in Neuilly, France in 1884.
