MINUTES OF EVIDENCE TAKEN BEFORE THE COMMITTEE ON IMMIGRATION. MAY l8, 1835

The Superintendent having left the ship before her arrival in Port Jackson, there was latterly no control whatever over the women, and some of them who had been
allowed to land, immediately after the ship came to anchor, were picked up quite drunk in the streets of Sydney, on the evening of their arrival.

This committee report came out the year before Mary Ann and William Sanders  came on the VICTORIA.

  • The Government, however, have latterly proposed a measure for the encouragement and promotion of emigration which, if the settlers were at all alive to their own interests and disposed to cooperate in securing them, would be tantamount to the adoption of our original recommendation. For, at a cost for agency which would be altogether insignificant for each individual or family brought out to the colony, the respectable colonists might have seemed through the Government measure we allude to, the immediate introduction of two or three thousand families of virtuous and industrious emigrants of the classes chiefly required in the colony.

LAND AND IMMIGRATION COMPANY.

An experiment has been tried in New South Wales to increase the number of immigrants by the formation of a Land and Immigration Company. The shares to be raised were 5,000, one half to be disposed of in the colony, and the other half to be reserved for capitalists in England. As we are also in need of an augmentation of our numbers, the hint may not be unprofitably applied ;

In Scotland, and the north of Ireland, where no such contribution could be looked for, but where the lower classes, being more intelligent, industrious and frugal, would be better fitted for roughing it in a new colony, virtuous and industrious families of these classes would willingly bind themselves to pay that amount from the first of their savings after their arrival ; and if in the event of their purchasing land on credit from the Company, this debt were to be chargeable on the land, its repayment would be secured.

MELINDA KENDALL : HER LIFE AND WRITINGS

Wednesday 14 April 1847 : THE MAITLAND MERCURY AND HUNTER GAZETTE

IMMIGRATION.

Whereas, by reason of the difference of
climate and soil, many commodities pro-
ducible in this colony, such as wine, oil,
silk, Sec, are not produced in the United
Kingdom, and the skilled labourers requisite
for their culture or manufacture cannot in
consequence be obtained by the colony from
the mother country ; and whereas it is deemed
expedient to afford to such of the colonists
as may desire to employ their land and
capital in the production of such commo-
dities as aforesaid, the means of providing
themselves with the required labourers from
such foreign countries as can supply them :
His Excellency the Governor directs it to be
notified, that subject to the approval of her
Majesty’s government, and under the con-
ditions hereinafter mentioned, there will be
granted to settlers who shall be at the charge
of bringing into New South Wales, for their
own services, emigrants from the continent
of Europe, a pecuniary aid or bounty at the
following rates:

(1») -For a married man and his wife, neither

of whose ages shall exceed on embarkation
fifty years-£36.

(2). For each child, male or female, above

the age of fourteen years, for whose parents,
or either of them, the foregoing bounty is
allowed (but for no other children or un-
married persons)-£18.

II. Before any payments are made under
this regulation, the immigrants on whose
account they are claimed must present them-
selves before a board appointed by the
Governor to inspect them.

Each married man and each of his un-
married sons who shall have reached the
age of eighteen years, must produce to the
board testimonials of good character, and of
their being duly qualified for the particular
employments which they have been brought
to the colony to fill. These testimonials
must be signed by clergymen and respect-
able inhabitants of note in the place of the
immigrant’s former residence, and authen-
ticated by a certificate of the secretary to
the land and emigration commissioners in
London, that after enquiry that board has
seen no reason to doubt their correctness or
credibility.

Every individual for whom bounty is
claimed, must produce a certificate, shewing
his or her parents” Christian names and sur-
names, and the age of which he or she is
known or reputed to be.; and this certificate
must be also authenticated by the secretary
to the land and emigration commissioners.

If the board shall be satisfied with these

documents, and that the persons presented
before them are within the prescribed ages,
of sound mind, of good bodily health and
strength, and in all other respects likely to
be useful members of their class in society,
and that they haye been duly supplied
during the voyage with a sufficiency of good
and wholesome provisions, and water, the
latter in the proportion’ of at least three
quarts per day for every emigrant, and with
reasonably comfortable accommodation, a
report lo that effect will be made by the
board, and so soon thereafter as it shall be
shewn by the person bringing out the emi-
grants, that be has removed them from

Sydney or Melbourne (as the case may be),
for the purpose of placing them on his own
property, a warrant will be issued for the
payment of the sum to which he shall be

entitled under this notice.

III. Any settler desiring to avail himself
of the bounties promised by this notice,
must transmit to the Colonial Secretary, at
Sydney, or to the Superintendent of Port
Phillip, at Melbourne, a list, specifying, as
accurately as circumstances will permit, the
number, condition, and calling of the per-
sons whom he may .propose to bring out. In
no case will bounties be allowed, unlesB the
claimant shall have made such application,
and shall have received in reply an official
intimation that (subject, as already stated,
to the approval of her Majesty’s govern-
ment) bounties will be granted on the intro-
duction of the persons described in his list.
The document containing this intimation
must be produced before the board by the
claimant, who will be required, at the same
time, to prove to the satisfaction of the
board, that the immigrants have been im-
ported in pursuance thereof. And in order
to guard against the inconvenience of long
outstanding claims against the government,

bounties will not be allowed unless the im-
migrants described in the application shall
be presented to the board within two <years
after the date of the notification -of accept-
ance by the Colonial’Secretary.

IV. To define the several descriptions of
labourers for whom bounties will ‘be allowed
under this notice would be impossible, and
an attempt to do so would be incoiiöi8t«-nt
with the object m view, which is to provide
the supply of labour requisite for the pro-
gressive tievelopement of the capabilities ot
the soil -as they may from time to time be-
come ‘further ¿known. It may, however, be
stated as a general rule, lhatithe government
will limit the allowance of bounty to such
labourers as are requisite for raising articles,
the produce of the soil, and for bringing
them into their simplest marketable -shape.
.In -illustration of this principle the cases of
wine and silk may be instdiiced. In the
former, bounties will ‘be given for all de-
scriptions of labourers necessary for the cul-
ture of the grape, and the manufacture and
casking of the wine. In the’ latter case,
bounties will be given for the labourers re-
quired for the production and preparation of
the raw material, but not for ils manufac-

ture.

Bounties will not be allowed under this
notice for persons above the labouring class,
such as overseers, nor for any labourers of
a description obtainable from the mother
country.

V. The fund available *for the purposes-of
this notice being »very limited, it must not be
expected that ‘the government will be able
at once’to promise the payment of bounties
on every application which it may see no
reason to disapprove. In any case, how-
ever, in which the government may be re-
strained by no other cause thau want of
means from .giving an ¡immediate assent to
an application, such application will be
noted in the Colonial Secretary’s Office, with
a view to its being entertained in preference
to others of a later date, whenever the re-
quisite funds may be at the disposal of the
government.

VI. It is to he distinctly understood, that
no quarantine oi other expenses whatever
attendant upon the introduction of emigrants
under this notice, will be defrayed by govern-
ment, excepting the bounties hereinbefore

mentioned.

VII. To prevent misapprehension and dis-
appointment, and to ensure a rigid adherence
to the principles of this regulation, it is
proper to state that the whole of the condi-
tions thereby imposed will be strictly con-
strued. Parties, therefore, who may intro-
duce immigrants not qualified by age, calling,
character, or otherwise, will do so entirely
at their own risk, and will have no claim on
the government to obtain the bounties offered
by the present notice.

‘IT WAS HARD TO DIE FRAE HAME’:

 

Several branches of the families came as assisted emigrants. Wilhelmina McLeod and her mother Janet Mackay with 3 siblings arrived in 1839 on the James Morgan from the Sutherland Shire  of Scotland. The Sanders ( William and Mary Ann) came by the VICTORIA in 1849. In 1853, The Jacksons arrived in the WILLIAM BROWN but I don’t yet know under what conditions they came. Also in 1853 the BEEJAPORE sailed to NSW and NZ and on board were John and Harriet Hurrell ( who died in the same year 1853. Many died on that ship and Harriet’s death may well be as a result of the voyage. ) Also on board were the Scottish CRAIGS. The extract below is from a NZ thesis on death and mourning amongst the Scots who emigrated .

 

IT WAS HARD TO DIE FRAE HAME’:

DEATH, GRIEF AND MOURNING

AMONG SCOTTISH MIGRANTS

TO NEW ZEALAND,

1840 -1890

By

Debra Powell

A Thesis

Submitted to the University of Waikato

in fulfilment of the

requirements for the degree of

Master of Arts

in History

Official aggregates from ships surgeons’ reports reinforce the impression of

diaries that

“few immigrant ships arrived in New Zealand waters with their

original complement of passengers. Infectious diseases, chronic illness,

accidents at sea, dysentery and diarrhoea, and the debilitating effects of constant

seasickness on pregnant women and breast-feeding mothers, all took a toll on

passenger numbers. Migrants were not unaware of the risks involved. The loss

of babies and infants was considered an inevitable consequence of long seaboard

journeys. William Usherwood on board the Beejapore to Sydney in 1853

expressed a common sentiment when he wrote: ‘The … adults are all in good

health, we have lost several children but this was quite expected, being always

the case’”

William Usherwood, cited in Robin Haines, Doctors at Sea: Emigrant Voyages to Colonial

Australia (Hampshire and New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2005), p. 2

up to assist Scots to find new homes abroad. In 1839, for example, a society was

formed among the weaving community of Fenwick in Ayrshire. The society

oversaw a ‘constant flow’ of departures to immigrant destinations including

Australia and New Zealand. Its constitution reflected a sense of impending crisis

and was unequivocal in its expression of the conviction that ‘ordinary folk’

should have the means to improvement, and an escape from the prospect of

unemployment, pauperism and starvation. It states:

A fearful gloom is fast thickening over the horizon of our country. Every

prospect of comfort to the working man is daily becoming darker and

more dreary. Trade and manufacturers are rapidly leaving our shores and,

to all appearance, a crisis is at hand in which the sufferings of the working

class will form a prominent feature

Zealand (Edinburgh: Canongate Books, 1998), p. 19

FROM DEBRA POWELL’S THESIS

“The ocean voyage between Scotland and New Zealand could take anywhere

from three to five months. These months represented a transitional period for

individuals and families, and acted as a liminal zone between the old life and the

new. Migrants’ experiences of death at sea were an important part of this

transition, as traditional ideas and practices were challenged by the exigencies of

sea burials. Of necessity, the time between death and disposal of the body was

 

 

I have elected to include the diaries of English as well as Scottish migrants to New Zealand and

Australia, both for what they reveal about perceptions of ‘Scottishness’, and because of the

obvious commonalities in both experiences and responses to death at sea.

short. In the case of stillborn infants, and when infectious diseases were aboard,

this may have been as little as one hour.

 

The complex traditions of waking and

kisting which had served to facilitate the mourning process among Scots in their

home communities had to be dispensed with in the cramped space aboard ship.

Moreover, many adult patients spent their last days quarantined in the ship’s

‘hospital’ being cared for by a matron and the ship’s surgeon rather than their

own kin, as they would have been at home. This removal from the dying process

often left families with little to comfort them through the difficult process of

mourning. There were several modes of reaction to the disruption of the grief

process through death at sea. Aside from the negation of traditionally held

customs and observances, sea burial provided the family with no fixed place of

interment, effectively denying them the comfort of future visits to the graveside.

Furthermore, the body of the deceased could never lie in the family grave sites

that were to become a feature of colonial graveyards in New Zealand, as they

were in Britain and Ireland. On a religious or superstitious level, many migrants

still held onto fears concerning resurrection. People witnessed the bodies of the

deceased dropped into water teeming with sea-life, protected by nothing but a

weighted canvas shroud. Residual beliefs concerning the resurrection of the

body and its dependence on corporeal integrity at death, meant that the fear of

burial at sea resonated with that of dissection in many minds”

I see here that the Hurrells –  John and his first wife, Harriett Tenpenny Abbott, came on the BEEJAPOORE in 1853. It was on the Beejapore that Thomas Craig and his family came – also in 1853. Thomas’ daughter Elizabeth Craig was my grandmother and she married John  George Sanders , Lucy Jane Hurrell’s son at Kinchela in the early 1900s.

EMIGRATION IN THE 1850s

Ancestors Known to have arrived as EMIGRANTS are

YEAR

SHIP EMIGRANTS
1839 JAMES MORGAN WILHEMINA MCLEOD WITH HER MOTHER JANET MACKAY AND HER SIBLINGS
1849 VICTORIA WILLIAM AND MARY ANN SANDERS
1853 WILLIAM BROWN WILLIAM JACKSON AND ELIZABETH JOHNSON (HIS WIFE) WITH ONE DAUGHTER.
1853 BEEJAPORE THOMAS CRAIG WITH HIS PARENTS AND SIBLINGS

 

 

The Sanders are marked on their disembarkation papers as “assisted emigrants”. The 19th century newspapers fill in a good deal of my lack of understanding of emigration in the 19th century. I have images of William Sanders and of Mary Ann Skivings Sanders but none of the other ” emigrants”.

THE JACKSONS. from READY OR NOT – compiled by PHIL READY.

On 17th May 1853 a sixty ton ketch, WILLIAM BROWN, had arrived in Sydney from Honolulu. Aboard were immigrants WILLIAM JACKSON and his wife ELIZABETH and one daughter. William who had been born in Nottinghamshire in England was a Coppersmith by trade. On 26th November 1849 , in London he had married EIZABETH JOHNSON who had been born in Norfolk England.

In 1853 William whose trade was very much in demand set up in business in Steven Street, Ultimo. The following year his address appeared in SANDS directory as BAY STREET GLEBE. Julia from whom I descend  was born on 5th June 1860 – listed as Newtown.

THE OTHER 2 FAMILIES OF EMIGRANTS SO FAR TRACKED ARE :

  • WILHELMINA MCLEOD who came from SUTHERLAND SHIRE with her mother and siblings : JANET MACKAY.

NORTH HEAD QUARANTINE STATION AND RESERVE

The arrival of the Beejapore in 1853, with over one thousand passengers, at a time when the Quarantine Station could accommodate 150 persons, triggered a new building phase. As a temporary measure, the hulk Harmony was purchased and moored in Spring Cove as a hospital ship. The Beejapore was an experiment in trying to reduce migration costs by using two-deck vessels, and the outcome was judged not to be a success. Fifty-five people died during the voyage, and a further sixty two died at the Quarantine Station, from the illnesses of measles, scarlet fever and typhus fever. The majority of the passengers and crew had to be housed in tents. The biggest impetus for change came not so much from a concern about poor housing, but rather a concern for the morals of the married women and the ‘200 single women let loose in the bush’ that represented the undeveloped station at that time. The resulting changes to the station, besides the use of the hospital ship, included the construction of a barracks for the single women in the former Sick
Ground, surrounded by a double fence with a sentry stationed between them, to prevent communication with the women. Two new buildings were built in the Healthy Ground, each to house sixty people, with verandahs for dining. The original burial ground was levelled and the grave stones [though not the dead] removed to the new [second] burial ground, thus further removing
he burials from the view of the Healthy Ground.8 Quarters were also built for the Superintendent .

 The single female immigrants aboard the quarantined Beejapore in 1853 pleaded not to be sent ashore after they had viewed the beach with the graveyard above it (ibid; 57). Once on the Healthy Ground, the view over the Cemetery was a constant reminder of the closeness of disease and death, as well as a reminder of those who had already died.

CRAIGS – PRONOUNCED ‘CREGG’ – KIND OF

If,as it appears, the Craigs came out on the Beejapore – William and Margaret with Sarah , Thomas , Margaret and Jane –

  • did they have more children out here in the Colony ?
  • did Sarah marry Alexander Craig and if so was he a relative ?

Perhaps George ?

THE CHILDREN OF THOMAS AND MARTHA CRAIG

THOMAS CRAIG comes out then as a child of assisted emigrants  and meets Martha Julian who is born on the Mcleay. They marry in 1877

COULD THIS BE GREAT GRANDFATHER

OR THIS BE HIS FATHER ?

CRAIG Thomas   31   Abyssinian 1859 2139, 2479

Family at this time says Thomas came here from SCOTLAND so its more likely to be the 8 year old boy. if so this is a site mentioning BEEJAPORE http://www.users.bigpond.com/kevinreed/pafg152.htm

The only other Thomas Craig seemingly coming in is

CRAIG Thomas 31     Kapunda 1877 2140, 2488

which would mean a VERY RAPID marriage to Martha on the Mcleay ?

 

3301/1877 CRAIG THOMAS MARRIES JULIAN MARTHA MACLEAY RIVER

 

THEN AGAIN MY BROTHER JON LISTS THOMAS AS BEING BORN IN 1858 SO HE SEEMS TO BE NONE OF THESE ONES. AND THIS IS SURELY HIS DEATH DETAILS BECAUSE THE DATE AND PLACE ARE IN THE CRAIG FAMILY BIBLE WHICH MY SISTER SUSAN HAS

6411/1916 CRAIG THOMAS father – WILLIAM mother – MARGARET died -KEMPSEY  

 

Looks like it IS the little boy THOMAS CRAIG on the BEEJAPORE because WILLIAM CRAIG also sailed on that ship in 1853 with his family.
