PARKHURST BOYS to New Zealand 1842 & 1843

PARKHURST PRISON

Although not officially classed as convicts, a group of convict boys called the Parkhurst Boys were sent to Western Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, Victoria and even to Norfolk Island.
They had been rehabilitated at Parkhurst Prison and were transported under a similar arrangement to the exiles who began to arrive a few years later. The aim was to apprentice them to local settlers.

In the ten years between 1842 and 1852 just under 1499 boys aged from twelve to eighteen were transported to Australia and New Zealand from Britain's Parkhurst Prison. Parkhurst was designed especially for boys and was built on the Isle of Wight. On December 26, 1838, Robert Woollcombe, the prison governor, arrived at Parkhurst with a team of taskmasters and the first 102 boys.

The prison was enlarged and extended during its time as a juvenile prison and until that time on March 30, 1864, the boys did much of the work as part of their training in carpentry, stonework and ironwork. In all, 4088 boys passed through the Parkhurst system.


the PARKHURST BOYS from Devonshire
Many Australians can trace their ancestry back to early immigrants, and for some a convict-connection is a badge of pride. Some families in Australia and also in New Zealand are descended from "Parkhurst Boys", a fairly short-lived scheme for the rehabilitation of young offenders, and just a few of these descend from boys sentenced in Devonshire

Quakers arranged for young offenders at Parkhurst Prison to be sent to the Isle of Wight to be taught trades.
Another offer was made that if they agreed to go to New Zealand to live and work they would be pardoned.
Most of the boys had been jailed for misdemeanours such as stealing fruit, or poaching

The Parkhurst Boys were treated with open hostility by some Aucklander's
Taken in by Auckland's harbour master, Captain David ROUGH, the Parkhurst Boy descendants became some of the most distinguished of Auckland citizens

The Parkhurst apprentices were juvenile prisoners from Parkhurst Prison on the Isle of Wight, sentenced to "transportation beyond the seas" and transported to Australia and New Zealand between 1842 and 1852. Either before leaving England[1] or on arrival at their destination[2], they were pardoned on the conditions that they be "apprenticed" to local employers, and that they not return to England during the term of their sentence. In the ten years between 1842 and 1852 nearly 1500 boys aged from twelve to eighteen were transported to Australia and New Zealand from Parkhurst Prison

When the Parkhurst Boys landed in Auckland, they were taken in hand by the Harbour-master and migration officer, David Rough. He did not think much of their prison-taught trades, for he immediately tendered them as farm labourers in the Government Gazette.
Some stayed in Auckland, with no alternative but to accept whatever employers and wages were offering. From the beginning, they were regarded by their contemporaries as black sheep, or worse

passenger list INDIAN QUEEN - Wellington 1857

A huge thank you to Tessa for finding this passenger list for the INDIAN QUEEN
- departed Liverpool 1 November 1856 - arrived in Wellington 30 January 1857

She was the second of James Baines & Co's Black Ball line of packets and was a sister ship to the Oliver Lang
The Captain was D. F. JOBSON

The reported number of passengers varies from paper to paper and over time I have seen from 270 to 340 to even 414 immigrants (plus some passengers) on board,

There was also a full cargo of general merchandise
22 deaths occurred on board (have also seen a report of 12) during the voyage, 20 children died of the measles and 2 adults died
There were reported to have been 4 births on board

A misunderstanding is reported to have arisen in Wellington between the provincial authorities and the immigrants. It appears that a verbal engagement was made by the agent of the province in Liverpool to the effect that all men emigrating would receive employment immediately on landing at 5s a day.
in consequence, employment was offered on the raods and public works but the rate of wages was reduced to 4s a day. The men to whom the promise was given by the agent stood out for its complete performance and threatened that if 5s were not given that they would not pay their promissory notes when they came due, at periods of twelve and twenty-four onths.

Because of this threatened refusal one of the recusants was summoned and imprisoned and police were stationed on board vessels about to eave the harbour and searched them to prevent re-emigration.

A number of the emigrants assembled before the police office using threats and 'violent language'.

The promissary notes were signed in Liverpool but were not stamped and a question was raised about their legality

The following list that Tessa found is of the signed (and overdue) promissory notes of the men from that voyage of the Indian Queen

the number after each name is the number of promissory notes signed

.. at 10 o'clock the company began to assemble ...

Taken from the New Zealand Examiner, 6 September 1862
- The emigration of 1,000 nonconformists to Albert Land, New Zealand

.. On the 28th of May, the London Docks presented a scene of an interesting and unusal description.
As early as ten o'clock in the morning an immense concourse of people assembled to witness the departure of two vessels, laden with emigrants, for the new colony of Albert Land, New Zealand. These emigrants are principally composed of members of the various nonconformist bodies, but include some persons who belong to the Church of England.

Availing themselves of the liberal offer of the New Zealand Government to grant forty acres of land to every emigrant paying his passage to the colony, with a proportionate grant in addition for each member of his family, Mr W. R. Brame and a number of friends have organised an enigration on a scale quite unprecedented.
In a comparatively brief period over a thousand persons have been duly registered, in spite of the numbers whose proposals have been declined, because for divers reasons they were deemed unsuitable. Only such persons were selected as possessed a certain amount of capital, or were proficient in some valuable mechanical avocation, or were in other points calculated to prove profitable to the new colony.
Should the pioneers report favourably, we may expect their new settlement to become highly popular.

The Colony of Albert Land, to which they proceed, is situate on the banks of a beautiful river named the Ornawharo, fifty or sixty mles from Auckland, a district of the fertility of which the most encouraging reports are given by competent authorities

The MATILDA WATTENBACH, a British-built clipper-ship of 1,000 tons, belonging to Messrs Wattenbachm Heilgers, and Co., of Mincingland; and the HANOVER, a ship of the same class and tonnage, and owned by George Marshall and Co., were specially selected from Messrs Shaw and Savill's well-known passenger line of packets, and will be followed by the WILLIAM MILES, 1,250 tons, on the 10th July.

On board the 'Matilda Wattenbach' there were about 350 passengers, including the Rev. S. Edgar, Mr W. R. Brame, the originator of the movement and the committee of management for "the new settlement"

On board the 'Hanover' there were about 280 passengers.

The IDA ZIEGLER also belonging to Messrs Wattenbach, heilgers and C., follows the 'William Miles' in the course of July. She made, last year, the fastest passage on record from London to Auckland, namely, eighty-five days.
The 'Matila Wattenbach' was formerly in the Calcutta line, and made the fastest passages on record, namely, outward 79 days, and homewards 86 days.

At ten o'clock the company began to assemble in a spacious booth erected for the purpose within the dock premises, where a public "farewell demonstration" was held, under the presidency of Mr Harper Twelvetrees. Some 15,000 persons were in attendance, and the Chairman and others having addressed them, the emigrants went on board. Salutes were fired, and the vessels were taken in tow by powerful steam-tugs amidst deafening applause from the immense multitude assembled to bid their friends farewell

From the Daily Southern Cross 15 Nov 1862:
Hesitation of the Immigrants from the "William Miles"

___________________________________________________________________
.. this journal is to help Kathy, and 2 other queries, with the passengers of the William Miles (the passenger list was difficult to find until fairly recently and then, if you read it, it does not show who is connected to who, parents & children etc)

If you can help put the passengers into family groups we will add them below for future reference for everyone 'out there' searching

Thanks to Kathy we know the Taylors below are one family grouup from the William Miles. There were a number of other Taylors on board but so far we have not connected them to John & Jane Taylor

Is this your family too? - can you add more please ...

Click the above links to find the other passengers and to read how it was for them on their emigration to the new land ...
