On May 29th 1862 the migrant ships "MATILDA WATTENBACH and `HANOVER` departed from London bound for the Alberland Settlement in New Zealand with the first of over 3000 settlers. They called themselves the Albertlanders, after Prince Albert, Queen Victoria`s consort.
Many of these settlers did not arrive at Port Albert - they moved further inland to more fertile areas. As a result Wellsford was founded. The ones who did stay found it difficult to make a living
