Arrived Canterbury, NZ - 1874

Back


Extract from 'White Wings', Vol.2, published 1928:

"Some of the early immigrant ships were crowded to say the least of it. There were 502 people on board the 'Ballochmyle' when she left London on Feb 25th, 1874, under charter to the New Zealand Shipping Company, her destination being Lyttelton. She was a fine ship of 1,438 tons under the command of Captain LUNDEN. The immigrants came aboard at Plymouth and the ship took her final departure from Start Point on March 4th. The Cape was rounded on March 18th and the Snares were passed on May 27th, the ship having taken 84 days from Plymouth. Port was reached on June 1st. There were 5 deaths and 3 births during the voyage.

"The 'Ballochmyle' was the first vessel to berth at the breastwork, now known as Gladstone Pier. When she was taking her departure from Lyttelton, being towed out by the steamer 'Beautiful Star' the line parted and kicked back viciously. The end of the line struck Captain Hart of the 'Beautiful Star', breaking both legs. Capt. Hart was carried on to Dunedin where the steamer was bound but died before reaching port. The southern paper, in noticing the death of Mr Thomas CARTER, the old Pilot , in 1926, said it was Captain LUNDEN of the 'Ballochmyle' who met with the accident but the victim was Capt. Hart".
