New Zealand Bound
The ship, City of Dunedin, 1084 tons, built at Dumbarton. Captain Sellars, left Glasgow, Scotland early June and arrived in Otago, N.Z., Sept. 3 1863 after a pleasant passage of 84 days with a large cargo including material for lighthouses at Dog Island and other public works and 330 passengers. There were four deaths on board. Cargill and Co. agents. Owners: Patrick Henderson & Co. Dimensions: 195 ft. long, 34.6 foot beam and holds 22 ft. deep. The City of Dunedin made ten voyages to Port Chalmers between 1863 and 1875 all direct from Scotland.

The passenger lists has proven elusive so this is a reconstruction, an ongoing project. Due to the passage of time many records no longer exist. For the most part records of government-assisted rather than paying passengers survived. If you know the names of any passengers please email me. THANKS.

1863 voyage - 146 names missing. Have only 184 names out of 330, that is 55%, and a diary entry.

Two "City of Dunedin's" arrived in the same year in Dunedin, both from Glasgow, one a ship on her maiden voyage and the other a side paddle wheel steamer on delivery voyage for local service, Captain McFarlane, arrived 24th Nov. 1863.

How to reconstruct a passenger list.

a. Genealogy is a challenge of critical thinking to find even little snippets of information and a study of history and geography is helpful.

Some had thought of immigrating to the States, but the Civil War broke out, and that put a stop to America, and thoughts turned in other directions. Immigration increased during the Otago gold rush so the practice of publishing full passenger lists in newspapers was abandoned.  Only a few of the arriving and departing vessels are listed.

b. Newspapers of the day. Check dates newspapers were established in the area. Papers Past. Maybe there is an account of voyage and passenger list if a paper was published at the time of the vessel's arrival and obituary.
c. Might be interesting to check in Glasgow newspapers, museums and Patrick Henderson and Co. records in Scotland
d. Diaries. Ian Nicolson's three volume series Log of Logs can be very helpful to locate journals.
e. Otago Early Settlers Association records  [OESA]
f. List of immigrants, debtors to the Provincial Government of Otago for Passage Moneys
g. Otago Settlers Museum records -
 has the diary of J.R. Strang. June to Sept. 1863- see transcription of eight of the pages. Sampler.
h. The Cyclopedia of New Zealand [Otago & Southland Provincial Districts]
i. 1861 Scotland census
j. Family histories - e.g. Bargrie and Sangster families

A Narrative of Ancestry and Immigration by James Roy
ROY, James (Home Missionary) b. at Begshill, Parish of Dunblade, Aberdeenshire, Scotland w. Margaret Bagrie m. 20.9.1860. Decided to come to New Zealand after hearing good reports from friends who had come out earlier. His extended family later joined him in NZ. Left Glasgow on the last day of Apr 1862 on the "Grassmere" bound for Port Chalmers New Zealand, Arrived 6th September 1862. Elder at First Church Dunedin, ordained Nov 1863.
k. Local History books - Port Chalmers and Its People by Ian Church
l. ATL -
beautiful painting online
m. Develop pen portraits of the families. Note origin. Might lead to more clues. Check specifically for female descendants. Maybe sisters came out on the same vessel but already married.
n. Google Papers Past. To find for example City of Dunedin in 1863 papers on PP via Google copy and past in type in site: "City of Dunedin" 1863 -"l=mi" site:
To exclude the Maori results add -"l=mi" [a minus sign plus "l=mi" which is the PPast code for language=Maori]
White Wings - to obtain voyage information. The "City of Dunedin" made ten voyages from Clyde to Port Chalmers from 1863 -1875. The "Otago Daily Times," 1863 recording her arrival, said: "This splendid new ship, the last and finest addition to Messrs. Patrick Henderson and Co.'s fleet, arrived on September 3, completing a pleasant passage of 84 days from the Clyde. She brings 330 passengers and a large cargo, including material for lighthouses at Dog Island and other public works. The City sailed from the Clyde on June 5, and Tory Island on the 9th. She crossed the Equator in thirty days, and in thirty more the Cape. After passing the Cape she made 5756 miles in 22 days, reaching the Snares on August 31. There were four deaths on the voyage."

Otago Daily Times 9 October 1863 Page 4
The ship City of Dunedin, which sailed a day or two since, was numerously visited during her stay by the inhabitants of Port Chalmers and Dunedin, and was universally admired for her build, dimensions, and accommodation. On her departure she was towed out by the Samson, and after some interchange of expressions of friendliness, the City of Dunedin set sail, firing a salute of two guns, which the Samson acknowledged by dipping her ensign.

Christina Sangster and Margaret Bagrie both died on the voyage, they were sisters, nee Dufton.

I cannot locate a passenger list for the 1863 voyage nor the 1864 voyage. There could be a passenger list somewhere!

EDINBURGH. June 25th, 1833. Here are the latest statistics of the emigration from this part of the world to yours:— The wood-and-iron ship City of Dunedin, l,085 tons, Captain Sellars, belonging - to the Messrs Henderson's line sailed from Greenock Bay on the 4th with 344 passengers for Port Chalmers.

Otago Daily Times 28 August 1863 Page 4 EXPECTED ARRIVALS.
From Glasgow —City of Dunedin (steamer): City of Dunedin, ship, June 5
The ship City of Dunedin left on the 4th instant, and on the 5th, when off Fairhead, a frantic passenger leapt overboard. In three minutes, the ship was rounded to, a boat lowered, and the passenger rescued, a feat which not only evinced able seamanship but showed that gear and tackle were all in the best condition." 

Otago Daily Times 18 September 1863, Page 4 Shipping Summary
At this date last year there was a very active shipping trade in Port Otago, induced by the large influx of people, and the proportionate supply of goods, which succeeded the discovery of the Dunstan Gold Field. This season there has not as yet been the same enormous passenger traffic, but, by the arrival of, numerous vessels from home, the importation of goods has been unusually large, employing several fine ships from London and Glasgow, and giving an impetus to the harbor trade which has not been experienced since the first extensive rush. Sixty vessels have arrived at Port Chalmers during the month past, bringing an aggregate of 1958 passengers, and the same number of departures have conveyed out of the country 836 persons, leaving a balance of 1122 in favor of the Province ; and it must be remembered that a large proportion of the departures have consisted of military volunteers proceeding to different provinces in the Northern Island.

Otago Daily Times 18 September 1863, Page 4
The ship City of Dunedin, the last and finest addition to Messrs Patrick Henderson and Co's fleet of vessels, made a pleasant passage of only 84 days from the Clyde. She brought 334 passengers, who were unanimous in the expression of their satisfaction with their treatment on the part of the owners, captain, and officers. The City of Dunedin sailed from the Clyde on the 5th June, and from Tory Island on the 9th. Crossed the Line in 30 days, and in 30 more made the meridian of the Cape. On the 14th July, in 25S and 31 W, put letters on board the barque Oberon, from Peru to Swansea. Thence to the Cape had unusually, light westerly winds, often making only from three to four knots, and requiring little or no change in the sails. After passing the Cape made 5756 miles in twenty-two days, reaching the Snares on Monday at 8 a.m. There were altogether four deaths during the passage, two of the deceased being children, and the others elderly females, sisters who were in delicate health. The deceased were Margaret Bagrie, widow, aged 50, from the parish of Forgue, Aberdeenshire - of dysentery (buried at sea); Ellen Turnbull, aged 6 years, from Glasgow, convulsions; James Hill, aged 8 months from Perthshire, convulsions, Christina Sangster, married, aged 59, from Forgue, of iliac passion. The general health was excellent, and the passengers arrived delighted with the pleasures of the voyage, and their treatment on board.

Mrs Christina Sangster died at Port Chalmers aboard ship and was buried at the Southern Cemetery, Dunedin, aged 60. No headstone, block 0. She was married and a native of Aberdeen, Scotland. (she was related to Mrs Margaret Bagrie who died at sea)

Otago Daily Times 8 September 1863 Page 4
Thomas Lattice, one of the seamen on board the ship City of Dunedin, was buried at Port Chalmers on Saturday, baying died very suddenly on the Friday previous, while on board a lighter alongside the vessel. The precise circumstances of his death are unknown; but it is supposed that be had boarded the lighter with other seamen, who were attempting to escape, and there died of disease of the heart, from which he had suffered and been under treatment for same time. Having been thus previously ill, it was not considered necessary to hold an inquest. A few days previously another burial from the ship took place — the body being that of a female who died after the vessel's arrival at the Heads. 

Horowhenua Chronicle 13 October 1932 Page 5
BAGRIE, SENR. The death occurred at Gore last Thursday of Mr John Bagrie, a well-known and highly esteemed resident of eastern Southland, and one of the pioneers of the district. He was born at Huntly, Aberdeenshire, 80 years ago, and came to New Zealand by the ship City of Dunedin, with the family to which, he belonged, when nine years of age. The deceased first resided at Tomahawk, and a few years later-went to Wairima. Fifty-seven years ago, he purchased a section at Arthurton, and was the first resident of the district. A year later-he married Miss Joan Turnbull the youngest, daughter of the late Mr and Mrs Thomas Turnbull of Waipahi. Mr J. Bagrie, senior constable at Levin, was the first white child born at Arthurton, and the oldest of a family of ten. Mr Bagrie, took a prominent part in securing a school for Arthurton, and was secretary and later chairman of its committee. Twenty-three years ago, he retired to Gore, and he served for two terms on the Borough Council. His wife predeceased him by four years; and he is survived by six sons— John (Levin), Thomas (Christchurch), James (Hinds), Robert (Brydone), Joseph (Queenstown) and William (Seaward Downs) — and one daughter, Mrs A. McDonald (Otikerama). One son, Albert, died at the War, and another, George, just after the War; and a daughter, Mrs E. Melvin (Gore), died some time ago. The funeral of the late Mr J Bagrie took place at Gore on Sunday. The pallbearers at the house were his six sons. At the cemetery the casket was born by three Arthurton neighbours, Messrs David Young, Richard Hocking and James Cummings, and three old Gore friends, Messrs W. Kirk, Hugh Smith and Robert Alexander.

Waikato Independent 23 December 1924 Page 4 AGNES BALFOUR CAMPBELL
Another of the fast-thinning ranks of New Zealand’s pioneers passed away at 3.30 on Sunday morning at her residence in Victoria Street, in the person of Mrs Agnes Balfour Campbell, relict of the late Duncan Campbell, at the advanced age of 88 years. Deceased was born at Mansefield Farm, County of Perth, Scotland, on May 5, 1836. It is a far cry back to the year 1863, but it was during that year that deceased and her husband with their two children arrived at Dunedin in the sailing ship City of Dunedin, the maiden trip of that vessel to New Zealand. Deceased and her late husband had their experiences of the goldmining days in Central Otago, and later deceased’s husband was in the employ of Sir Geo. Grey for some considerable time. In 1869 deceased and her late husband and family removed to the Waikato and took up farming at Cambridge, where deceased resided continuously until her death. Mrs Campbell’s husband predeceased her eighteen years ago. Deceased was a woman of sterling character, and was typical of the splendid type of womanhood that withstood proudly and without complaint the trials and vicissitudes of the early pioneering days, when a wife was called upon not only to care for the domestic side of a family but also took her share of the daily, toil on the land.

The death at Waikoikoi last Saturday of Mr James Crawford at the age of 95 years removed one of the pioneer residents of Eastern Southland. From his youth Mr Crawford devoted himself almost entirely to farming, giving the management of his property a great deal of thought in developing it along sound, progressive lines. It is worthy of note that Mr Crawiord was among the first settlers in the south to develop sheep farming, having early recognised that grain-growing would not return a profit, and he was the first to send a consignment of fat lambs, about 50 in number, to Dunedin. where the return was 17s 9d a head. Mr Crawford arrived in New Zealand by the ship City of Dunedin in 1863. first taking up, employment at Dunedin, then little else than mud holes and flax, ditching the swamp land from where the Bay View Hotel now stands to Tahuna Park. For several years he followed various occupations at Dunedin and Oamaru but on hearing of the fertile land in Southland he decided to move south and take up property. The arduous journey from Dunedin south to Wainahi and across the Landslip to the Tapanui district was undertaken, and eventually he succeeded in setting up a home on his newly-acquired property. The original holding of 200 acres was from time to time increased to 600 acres Concentration on breeding and selecting resulted in Mr Crawford’s stock becoming recognised as among the finest in the province, and as recently as 15 years ago he introduced merino rams from Blenheim to his crossbred sheep, his wool prices soaring to 194 d a lb a few years later.

By the arrival of the paddle steamer City of Dunedin, Otago has received a valuable addition to the vessels employed in the coastal trade of the colony... The accommodation provided for passengers on hoard the City of Dunedin is very superior. Out of her length of 160 feet, and her beam of 23 feet, the saloon and its accessories of ladies' cabin, pantries, &c, occupy an extensive space, the saloon, particularly, bring a spacious apartment, tastefully treated by the upholsterer, the painter, and the gilder ; one effort of the painter's being the adornment of the skylight with two very pretty illustrations of local scenery. Including the state-rooms, which are large and well-provided, there are 28 berths, which are exclusive of 12 in the ladies' cabin — an apartment superior in dimensions and outfit than the ladies' cabins even in the large intercolonial boats. Lavatories, pantries, officers' rooms, Sec. complete the accommodation aft, and in the fore part of the vessel there is a spacious steerage, with mahogany dining tables, 16 comfortable berths, and all conveniences. As a whole, the agents of the vessels, Messrs Cargill and Co, may be proud of the City of Dunedin, as realising in her appearance and the expectations entertained of her, and with Captain Boyd as her commander, she will no doubt soon prove herself to be in reality, as well as apparently, a most efficient vessel for the particular trade in which she is to be employed.
