Obituary notice.

The death of Mr. Donald Cameron of Port Stephens of which the usual Obituary Notice was inserted in the "Empire" of Friday last deserves a more extended notice than it then and there received.

Inverness Courier Index 1837, p212

A large body of emigrants sailed from Tobermory on the 27th of September for New South Wales. The vessel was the Brilliant, and its size and splendid fittings were greatly admired. “the people to be conveyed by this vessel are decidedly the most valuable that have ever left the shores of Great Britain; they are all of excellent moral character, and from their knowledge of agriculture, and management of sheep and cattle, must prove a most valuable acquisition to a colony like New South Wales.” The Rev. Mr Macpherson, of Tobermory, preached a farewell sermon before the party sailed. The total number of emigrants was 322, made up as follows:—From Ardnamurchan and Strontian, 105; Coll and Tiree, 104; Mull and lona, 56; Morven, 25; Dunoon, 28; teachers, 2; surgeons, 2. A visitor from New South Wales presented as many of the party as he met with letters of introduction, and expressed himself highly gratified with the prospect of having so valuable an addition to the colony. A Government agent superintended the embarkation.

Maitland Mercury… Saturday 21 June 1845

IN 1845,

Preservative Powers of Guano.-Captain Withers, of the ship Colchester, brought home with him from Ichaboe the skeleton of a Portuguese sailor, buried there in 1791. Every part of it was in a a state of perfect preservation. The empty hammock and linen found with it were perfectly sound and strong, whilst the wool and flannel about it crumbled to pieces at the touch.

Connexions of France and Ireland.-The Count de Montalembert, in his letter to Mr. J.O’Connell, talks of the ancient connexions between France and Ireland. These are stronger
than the English people understand. From 1691 to 1791 fifteen thousand Irish were constantly in the French service.

THE SANDERS AND IMMIGRATION

I have had information about the Sanders for years now but not put it together. Now I am accessing the Newspapers and understanding a little more of what was involved in the emigration/immigration process, I shall write out some of the details I have and see how they fit with the NLA Articles.

William Sanders married Mary Ann Skivings and they emigrated to Australia.  They sailed from Plymouth on the ship VICTORIA and arrived in SYDNEY on September 4th, 1849 ( 100 years before I was born). Their shipping papers state that they had no relations living in the Colony ( this is disputed re THOMAS SANDERS at Appin but neither is verified by primary source as yet) . Dick Sanders found that the property at Appin to which they went on arriving was at PROSPECT ( now known as WENTWORTHVILLE) and was owned by THOMAS SANDERS who had 100 acres there. Elizabeth Grace, their first child was born there.

They then came north alone the NEW ENGLAND HIGHWAY looking for land. From ARMIDALE, they turned East to the Coast and came to the Macleay River. They moved about in this area for about 8 years before William purchased a block of 60 acres  and paid 60 pounds. DATE AUGUST 13 – 1863.

Each of the children was given a block of land to make a living on. William finally transferred the land to two of his sons, WALTER THOMAS  and EDRED JAMES on Nov 1 1898. These were two younger sons.

It was through SANDERS land that the road was re-routed to HAT HEAD to avoid swampland.

Dick Sanders said that where the school now stands was SANDERS property. Kinchela School.

The Maitland Mercury… Saturday 15 April 1848, page 2.

ARRIVAL OF IMMIGRANTS IN MAITLAND.

By Thursday morning’s mail the Police Magistrate received a letter from the Immigration Agent in Sydney intimating that free passages to Maitland on Thursday evening, with board and lodging until they should receive offers of employment at fair wages, would be offered to as many of the immigrants by the Suhraon as chose to avail themselves of the opportunity of at once proceeding to the country ; and requesting the Police Magistrate to make arrangements to receive those who might be sent. Accordingly, by yesterday’s steamer, 57 of the immigrants reached Maitland, and have been lodged in the house formerly occupied by Mr. Rae, next door to the late Blue Bell Inn, East Maitland ; and are now ready to make engagements. Of the new arrivals, 10 are single men, 10 single women, the remainder married couples

SIR-I came to Maitland last week for the  purpose of hiring a few immigrants. I attended the places where they are quartered, and I could not see more, than six or eight at either place.  In taking a ride over to West Maitland I met them in lots of six or eight, and numbers I saw taking their walks on the race-course. These  walks ought to be taken at times so as not to  inconvenience people that may come to hire  these gentlemen. Some observations on this  subject may cause such restrictions as will  operate for the benefit of all parties.

I remain,

sir, yours truly,

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.

  • 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.

BELLINGER CEDAR IN 1847

NORTHERN CEDAR.-On Monday last we noticed the arrival of some extraordinarily large logs of cedar, by the new schooner built at the Bellinger River for Mr. John Robertson, Market Wharf: Since then we have learnt that one-half the cargo (30,000  feet cedar) is the produce of only one tree, the parent of the immense logs first noticed. This interesting specimen of Bellinger produce yielded about 15,000 feet sawn timber, and realised in Sydney upwards of one hundred guineas. The purchase, we believe, has been made for the China market; and as the quality of this cedar is correspondent with its magnitude, it will tend, we trust, to increase the growing repute of Australian cedar with the Celestials.-S. M. Herald, August 19. 1847

THE SCHOONER . VIXEN. -We are happy to state that this vessel, which has for some

time past been given up by most persons as lost, arrived in the harbour in safely on

Tuesday evening. Captain Stevens informs us, that after leaving this port for Newcastle

on the 17th July, he experienced nothing but heavy gales from the westward, and was

driven to a distance of about four hundred miles off the land, which he did not make

again until the 7th ultimo, when be spoke the ketch Brothers, of Sydney, (being then

off the Bellinger River) in a very distressed state, but could render her no assistance, as

the gale had not abated. Captain Stevens then bore up for the Richmond River, and 

from thence has brought on a full cargo of cedar.

MURDERS BY THE BLACKS.- Intelligence was received yesterday, in Sydney, from the Bellinger River, dated the 17th inst. stating
that Daniel Devlin, His wife, and Dennis Cheyne, all living on John Robertson’s cedar cutting station, had been inhumanly murdered by the blacks. The same letter also states that a civilized black, who had been living for a considerable time with Commissioner Massie, had been decoyed away and murdered by the Maitland tribe on the M’Leay River. The white population of these districts are said to be out in pursuit of tbe savages. The particulars may be expected in Sydney in a few days. Mrs. Devlin has left a child nine months old. Her parents
reside at the Five Islands.-Herald, Mar. 30. 1846

The Star of China has made a fair passage of fourteen days from Auckland, notwithstanding she had experienced exceedingly
had weather along the coast. She was off the Bellinger River on the 23rd instant, having been driven out of her course by south-west
winds and strong northerly currents. On Friday last, she was compelled to seek shelter in Seal Rock Bay, where she remained about
thirty hours ; and on Sunday put into Port Stephens, from whence she sailed on Tuesday morning.

THE STEAMER ” PHOENIX.”-A rumour has been in circulation, since the arrival from the

Richmond River of the ketch Pelican, that the Phoenix was on the bar at the Clarence. The

news was communicated by some blacks to one of the passengers by the Pelican, but in the

absence of more authentic information we would hope that the rumour is without foundation.

People’s Advocate, March 16.-Rumours were rife in town last night that the Phoenix steamer,

now 14 days overdue on her return trip from the Clarence to Sydney, had been wrecked on her

passage thither. We give the rumour as it reached us, and believe it to have originated in

a report of the blacks, of their having discovered some bags of flour and other articles of a description likely to have been an up-country cargo, on

the line of coast, floated ashore between the Bellinger and Richmond Rivers-Bell’s Life,

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.

JOHN READY AND THE THREE BEES

Governor Macquarie wrote:

The Three Bees, commanded by Captn. John Wallis, arrived on the 6th inst. with two hundred and ten male Convicts, out of 219 originally embarked, the other nine having died on the passage; and out of those landed, it has been necessary to Send fifty five to the Hospital many of them being much affected with Scurvy and others labouring under various complaints. On enquiring into the cause of this mortality and sickness, it appeared that many of them had been embarked in a bad state of health, and not a few infirm from lameness and old age. I am happy in being enabled to state that the Convicts by the Catherine and the Three Bees have, without a Single Exception, borne grateful Testimony to their having been treated with the most unremitting care, Attention, and kindness, by the Masters and Surgeons of those Vessels, from the day of their Embarkation until they were finally landed here. The circumstance of several of those unfortunate men being embarked in a diseased or feeble State will, I trust, shew (sic) the necessity for greater attention being paid to the state of the Health of the Convicts, who are to be embarked in future, which I have much reason to believe has not been so fully attended to by the Examining Surgeons as Humanity demands

Despatch No.8 of 1814 from Governor Macquarie to Earl Bathurst, dated Sydney, NSW, 24 May 1814

ACK WITH THANKS : From Philip Ready’s READY OR NOT.

JOHN READY c 1790-1831

John Ready was born circa 1790 to ? Ready and Johannah nee Cavenagh in the ancient town of Limerick ,constructed during the 9th century on the shore of the River Shannon which flowed through South Western Ireland into the Atlantic Ocean. Nothing is known about John’s childhood  but when he was arrested at the age of twenty two he was a tall sandy haired young man with hazel eyes and a fair complexion working as a garden labourer.

John was tried along with John Morgan a forty year old shoemaker from from Tipperary , at the assizes in County Tippery ? in August 1812, for the numerous felonies which they had committed together. Found guilty, each was sentenced to 14 years transportation to New South Wales and were moved to Cork to await their ship.

It was 13 months before the transport THE THREE BEES built and launched at Bridgewater earlier that year and on her maiden voyage arrived at Cork on a sultry  Wednesday in the early Autumn of 1813. She had taken her first convicts at Canal Docks in Dublin on ThThe ursday August 26th and now on September 22nd was to take on the rest of her compliment. The small prison hold was very crowded and John, standing 5’10 1/2 ” tall would have found it particularly cramped as those over 5′ in height were unable to stand upright.

Thirty five days later on Wednesday 27th October 1813, the THREE BEES sailed out of Cork harbour to join a convoy at Falmouth England. There she waited for another five weeks with the temperature plummeting  as Autumn turned to Winter. Some of the prisoners were suffering severely for they had been aboard in their tiny prison for over three months but , coming from hardy stock, as they did, there were very few among them sick when she sailed on Sunday 5th December 1813 for Rio de Janeiro.

Stormy weather during the voyage meant that the prisoners were often not allowed to go on deck and the conditions in the crowded prison were terrible for many of the prisoners suffered from sea sickness. The stench from this, from their unwashed bodies and body wastes were very hard to bear.

At Rio having crossed the Equator, it was Summer and extremely hot but the prisoners were quite freely allowed on deck with the prison temperatures  dropping six to eight degrees when the prisoners were all out. One man died of fever but when the ship sailed on Thursday 17 Feb 1814 there were very few sick among them.

Ten days later after leaving Rio the lookout sighted a strange ship. Worried that they might be attacked Captain John Wallis ordered the convicts’ bedding to be brought on deck to forma  barricade. A sudden downpour of rain soaked the bedding and they found it impossible to get it dry before nightfall ( The Convict Ships – Bateson)

(Both the Broxbornebury and Surrey I were in the fleet which originally set out. http://melindakendall.wordpress.com/  An ancestor of Janice Maurice- Hugh Kennedy – was also on the THREE BEES . His daughter Elizabeth Kennedy married John Taylor one of whose descendants married Agnes Sanders
Hugh Kennedy born about 1768 was indicted for having in his custody at Belfast on August 1812 a counterfeit Bank of Ireland note for one pound two shillings and ninepence knowing it to be forged transported for 14 years age 44 occupation weaver.
The Three Bees only made one voyage after her arrival in 1814 she caught fire near Government wharf and exploded in the harbour then drifted onto the rocks at Bennelong point where she burnt to the water line.
Hugh died in march 1843 he owned land in Grose Street Parramatta.
)

The prisoners were advised not to use their damp bedding but rather than sleep on the bare boards most chose to ignore the warning.  Scurvy broke out and seven prisoners died due to their weakened state and lack of fresh fruit and vegetables.

On the THREE BEES’ arrival in Sydney on Friday 26 May 1814 fifty five of the remaining one hundred and twenty one prisoners were taken to  hospital. Many of these were affected by scurvy and some with other complaints. Contrary to the earlier on their state of health on embarkation. “on enquiry  it was claimed that many had embarked in a bad state of health and that not a few were infirm from lameness or old age. but all bore grateful testimony  to having been treated with unremitting care,attention and kindness from the time of their embarkation to landing” . (HRA Series I Vol 8.P.)

John then is sent to Windsor where his convict mother Johannah Ready nee Cavanagh –  is housekeeper at Government House.

On Sunday the 28th November 1801, two vessels , Hercules with Ann aboard  and Atlas , sailed from the Port Of Cork. The Hercules , a two deck square masted vessel of three hundred and ninety five tons burthen, built in Newcastle England was armed with ten guns , carried a crew of between 32 and 35 men , 140 male and 25 female prisoners and several passengers- among them Major Johnston who was alter to figure prominently in the history of the Colony. the ship also carried a detachment of the New South Wales Corps, under captain Ralph Wilson. ( pro reel 413 wo 12/9901 folio160 ML)

On Tuesday 29th December in the vicinity of Cape Verdes, there was a mutiny aboard ship and thirteen of the convicts were either killed during the mutiny or afterwards died from their wounds. One was later shot by Captain Betts. ( PRO 10 p 260)

At Rio after a disagreement with Captain Brookes who commanded the ATLAS Thomas Jamieson , the acting Surgeon General, with his wife and five children transferred to the HERCULES which arrived in Sydney Town on  Saturday 26th.
