Ship: 744 tons
Captain: Foreman

Surgeon Superintendent: R St. M Dawes
Sailed London 21st November 1873 - arrived Napier 8th March 1874

Captain Foreman seems to have been singular in carrying matrimonially inclined couples, as on a voyage to Napier 1873 - for he performes two ceremonies, and on that occasion no questions were raised as to his jurisdiction. She was formerly the Atlanta Banfield, under which name she came to grief and was condemed and sold. Her new owner, however, carried out extensive repairs and remaned his craft the Invererne. Under her new name the ship made three vouages to New Zealand , all under the command of Captain Foreman. The first was to Napier, where she arrived on March 8 1874, bringing 240 immigrants, 107 days from London. There was a lot of sickness aboard during the trip and 16 children died, the chief trouble being scarlatina.

He married Fanny Linney, daughter of Edward Linney of Castle Bromwich, Birmingham, at St Michael Parish, Coventry.
