Ship: 912 tons
Captain: McPhail
Surgeon Superintendent: Charles E Barnard
Sailed London 26th November 1874 - arrived Auckland March 3rd 1875

A vessel of 912 tons, built at Sunderland in 1861, the India was chartered in 1874 for a voyage to Auckland. She sailed from London on November 26th, 1874, under Captain McPhail, with 163 passengers, 15 of whom were for the settlement of Katikati, Bay of Plenty, and made a good run of 97 days port to port, arriving on the 3rd March, 1875. When running down her easting she passed very close to several large icebergs, and for two days Captain McPhail and the officers had an anxious time. Two deaths and three births occurred during the voyage.
