Auckland - New Zealand Bound
Auckland had been selected as the capital of New Zealand by Captain Hobson in 1840 as he liked the isthmus. The port is on the east coast of North Island and is situated on the sparkling waters of Waitemata Harbour surrounded by the city. Onehunga is situated on the west coast of the North Island and on the northeast shore of the immense Manukau Harbour, 27km from the Tasman Sea entrance. 21st May 1842 the barque Louisa Campbell, Captain Darby, with the first immigrants direct from the UK for Auckland arrived, chartered by a company formed by a few gentlemen in the Bay of Islands, in the year 1839. The leading spirit of the party was Captain Heale, who was part owner and captain of an East India ship named the Aurora. This ship brought out immigrants for the Port Nicholson Company. Having landed his passengers Capt. Heale proceeded to Hokianga to load spars for the British navy. In going out of this port he lost his ship. He and his crew proceeded overland to the Bay of islands where he met a few adventurous spirits who formed a company. Capt. Heale was commissioned to proceed to N. American to obtain a steam sawing establishment. He arrived back via England with a steam saw mill with a frame and circular saw, a Cornish beam engine and boiler and a two storyed house, bricks, lime, cement and all things necessary to establish a mercantile house. Any spare space was filled with camp ovens, "go-ashores," blankets, etc, for native trade. The schooner Osprey, under the command of Captain Sedgwick, with eleven hands, was purchased to be freight all this out. Among the passengers were the mill engineer (Mr Russell) and wife and family, the mill manager (Mr Coldicutt), with wife and five children. Three gentlemen farmers also took passage. Dr Walter Lee was appointed to look after the little company. The ship landed the house and merchandise at Auckland and then to the Manukau harbour to land the saw mill.
Captain Heale chartered and filled up with cargo and passengers the barque Louisa Campbell, commanded by Captain Darby, and a fine stalwart crew of 18 hands all told. Dr. Morrison was ship's doctor. Captain Heale decided to take passage in the vessel. Her cabin accommodation was soon taken up by the following passengers, namely, Rev. G. S. Kissling, wife and family, Rev. Mr. Spencer, wife and two children (one born at sea), Mr. and Mrs. Williams, three children (one born at sea), and servant, Mr. Berry (first sheriff of Auckland) and Mrs. Berry, Mr. and Mrs. Hallimore, Mr. Coney, Mr. Appleyard (the donor of the south corner section of Queen and Shortland-street to St. John's College), Mr. and Mrs. George, Mr. and Mrs. Joshua Robinson. Mr. and Mrs. Caleb Robinson and family, Mrs. Wagget and daughter. Mr. and Mrs. Tidmarsh and three children, Mr. B. Hughes, wife and family, Messrs. Moffat (dentist), and Mark Dent, and a number of single men, one of their number being married at sea by the Rev. Mr. Kissing. Thus there was one marriage, two births and two christening at sea. All arrived well, off the North Head, on the 21st May, 1842. At this point, Captain Rough took charge and brought her up, and let go the anchor off Point Britomart. Captain Darby then gave the order to fire a salute of thirteen guns. The schooner Osprey arrived 14 days before the barque.
Residing in Auckland about that time: Governor Hobson, a company of the 80th Regiment, Judge Martin, Attorney-General Swainson, Dr. Davis, wife, and family, Captain Kane, Captain Stewart, Captain Reed, Brown and Campbell, Henderson and Macfarlane, Williamson and Crummer, Mr. and Mrs. Thosmas Russell, sen., Mr. and Mrs. Laurie, Mr. Hart, wife, and eon, Mr. and Mrs. Deacon and family, Mr. and Mrs. Constable, Mr. C. J. Stone, wife, and family, Gibson and Mitchell, Mr. and Mrs. V. C.

The names shown are those that have been in the colony for at least 50 years, so their recall of the ships arrival date is probably, in a lot of cases, from memory, so be prepared to find that some may be a year or two out. As it is dated 50+ years AFTER the ships arrival, it shows the married names of the children who came on the various ships, which in turn included the spouses name at the time and date and place of birth and if they arrived by boat it invariably shows that ships name and in some cases the spouses parents names and mother's maiden name. write-up
A Pensioner Fencible Soldier was a person who had served time overseas for his country - Ireland - usually in India or Malta - had got sick or hurt in one of those places - was still fit enough to be in the army but unfit for active service, they were then sent back home - Ireland. In 1847 Governor Sir George Grey requested men to defend Auckland NZ against the Maoris uprising. The requests went to England, Ireland and Scotland. The men had to be 5' 6" and over, good character, in return they would be given free passage for themselves and family, cottage and 1 acre of land on the outskirts of Auckland, for seven years service in NZ. They only had to report to parade on a Sunday to collect their pension, otherwise they were free to work for anyone or do what they liked during the week but if needed had to muster immediately to protect Auckland against the Maori. There was only ever one muster called and there was never a shot fired. There was in all ten ships that came to NZ. 'Ann', Berhampore, Berwick Castle, Clifton, Inchinnan, Minerva, Oriental Queen, Ramillies, Sir George Seymour, Sir Robert Sale, between 1847 - 1852.

The Ann left Gravesend England 5th Oct 1847 for Ireland, left there 25th Dec 1847, stopped five days in the Cape of Good Hope for repairs, arriving in Auckland 17 May 1848. There was three fires on board, they ran out of salt, three birth and twelve deaths. Captain C.S. Walker in charge. 74 pensioners, 70 women, 153 children.
All the other ships are well documented but the 'Ann' is not she just appeared and then disappeared into the mist two months later in July in ballast for Hong Kong, never to be heard of again. She was built in Bombay in 1812 by J.J. Griffiths for the English Armada, containing gun turrets but the guns were never fitted and she was never used for the purposed she was built for. Auckland Public Library and Auckland Museum Library have information on the Fencibles.

An overland from Taranaki arrived in town on Saturday last, bringing us intelligence of the Elora having touched at New Plymouth on the 30th ultimo, from the Downs on the 12th October, after a fine run of a hundred and three days. She landed her mail, the Auckland portion having come to hand, and after discharging a few goods, sailed again on the 1st instant for Nelson, where she calls, as also at Wellington, before finally coming on here. We learn that there are some twenty Cabin passengers on board, eighteen of them being for this place, some of whom are old acquaintances who return once again among us, bringing new friends along with them. This is a pleasing feature. We are ever glad to hail the arrival of new-comers, but when they are introduced to us by old friends, friends who for a time have left us, and have returned again to make this their final resting place a pleasing proof is conveyed to us that our Colony and our Settlement are held in estimation.

Struck by a water spout. Narrative from Mr Heaton, an officer of Her Majesty's ship Electra, son of the Hon. Mrs Heaton, of Plas Heaton, Denbighshire, and nephew of Lord Henniker, and dated "At Sea, Nov. 22, 1855" " We left Melbourne on the 12th of last month, and with our usual fortune, encountered very heavy weather during the whole of our passage to New Zealand, the sea running very high, and washing over us continually. One day an enormous sea broke over us, and the first thing it carried away was the second gig, completely crumpling her up and smashing her all to bits. It then stove in the gunroom and the captain's skylights, and washed everything off the tables in both places, including a bookshelf and a swinging lamp. They were at breakfast in the gunroom at the time, and in a moment officers, teacups, lumps of butter, servants, and red herrings were all floundering together on the deck in three feet of water, and it was some minutes before the ship recovered herself from the shock. Eating our meals was a violent gymnastic exercise; and as to writing, it was out of the question. Ten days of this work brought up the north point of New Zealand, and it took three more to beat down the east coast to Auckland, where we arrived on the 25th ult, after the longest sea passage we have made since out first arrival from England. We remained at Auckland for 19 days. We sallied from Auckland on the 12th of the present month, and have been fighting with headwinds ever since. We have only advanced 400 miles and still 7000 miles from Sydney. The day before yesterday we encountered a most extraordinary danger - we were caught in a water spout. The day had been squally, and we had been compelled to take in sail several times, and therefore we who were below were not surprised to find the ship heel gradually over; but when she went further, and the deck came almost perpendicular, we could see that something had happened beyond the common order of squalls. I climbed over the others and reached the deck. There everything was in confusion, and the ship was lying over on her broadside, with all of one side buried in the water, ropes and sails flapping about. I began to drive the men to the ropes to haul down the after sails, and after a couple of minutes; work the ship slowly righted. It seems that a whirling mass of water had been seen near ten ship, and before anything could be done it was upon her. it was indeed a fearful moment; and nothing but God's hand could have saved us, for man was utterly powerless against manifestation of our Creator's might.

TESTIMONIAL TO CAPT. JOHNSON.
To Captain Johnson. Dear Sir, We, the undersigned, passengers in the Lord Worsley,' feel it a pleasant duty to express to you, on our arrival in Auckland harbour, our appreciation of the kindness and consideration for our comfort and enjoyment which you have uniformly exhibited during our voyage from Sydney. Notwithstanding the very limited accommodation afforded by the vessel, you have invariably asented to any proposition which had been suggested for our convenience, whilst the readiness and heartness with which you have entered into those amusements which have tended so much to lighten the necessarily monotonous character of a voyage, demand our thanks. In leaving the vessel we request your acceptance of a small testimonial, as assurance of our regard. We are confident that an appreciation of your merits will ensure your advancement in a service we trust you will long live to adorn. With best wishes for your own health and happiness, and for that of your family, We are, very faithfully yours, (Signed)

The barque 'Glenhuntly' and ship Hindostan, have both arrived from London. The former arrived on Saturday last and the ship yesterday. The 'Hindostan,' however, left London on the 12th September, and the ' Glenhuntly' on the next day, thus beating the ship on the voyage by two days. A fact that speaks well for the sailing qualities of the barque, as the Hindostan, Captain Peek considers is no mean sailor. Neither vessels lighted each other during the passage.

|The Lay of the Last Maori.
The way was long, the wind was cold,
The Maori was half-starved and old;
his tattooed check, and mournful eye
Told tales of better days gone by;
Around his neck, in blanket slung,
His greenstone meri loosely hung;
His prized jews'-harp, his only joy,
Was 'toted" by a half-caste boy.
The last of all the maories he
Who fought for native monarchy.
Alas! his race's date had fled,....
|Upon Mount Eden's rising swell
he paused, and gazed towards Parnell;
Then turned his eyes upon the Bay,
Where many a white wing'd vessel lay;
Wandered to Niccol's Patent Slip;
He shook his head; then as he viewed
The busy, hurrying multitude
In Auckland's streets, he heaved a sigh
And wept to think on days gone by.
