The Sydney Gazette and… Tuesday 14 May 1839, page 2.

The Mellish sailed from the Downs on
the 17th January, with a cargo of mer-
chandise for this port. Her agents are
Messrs. Hughes and Hosking.

The Whitby cleared outwards on the
12th January, and the Waverley on the
16th in ballast ; both for Sydney. In

all probability they bring either emigrants

or convicts.

THE WAVERLEY.-Among the convicts
arrived by the Waverley is Carrick, the
Roman Catholic Monk, whose trial and
conviction on a charge of torturing a
child to death created a strong excitement
in Ireland some eight or nine months

since. The Roman Catholics not being
quite so powerful at head quarters as they
were in the time of Sir Richard Bourke,
when another special who shall be name-
less, was brought to Sydney and allowed
to go at large, we presume Carrick will
be forwarded to Port Macquarie forth-
with, or sent to vegetate on Cockatoo

Island.

The CONVICT BARRACKS.-On Satur-
day last His Excellency the Governor
visited the Prisoners’ Barracks, Hyde
Park, for the purpose of inspecting the
convicts who arrived by the Waverley.
The names of the men were called over,

and they were ranged round His Excel-
lency in a circle, when he explained to
them the situation in which they were
placed in regard to the term of probation
they were required to serve before being
assigned to private service, and the
rewards held out to them, by indulgences,
for good behaviour.

  • I am including this snippet due to the Bell name being linked with a WAVERLEY trip South. Wilhelmina Mcleod married James Bell. 
  • WINDUSS family – Tasmania and Victoria, Australia

John WINDUSS was born in December 1809 at Otterburn, Yorkshire, England and married Mary BELL. John belonged to the 96th Regiment and arrived in Hobart on 21st September 1841 on the ship “Waverley” with wife Mary.
As with the TEVELEIN family I have found most WINDUSS names in Tasmania and Victoria are connected to John and Mary and there are also WINDUSS descendants of John and Mary in Western Australia and New Zealand.

While I’m at this one – research to date indicates that WILLIAM and ELIZABETH JACKSON came on WILLIAM BROWN SCHOONER in 1853. Looking at records I find that the BEEJAPORE ( see also CRAIGS AND HURRELLS) which arrived in 1853, brought a number of JACKSONS and was clearly an emigrant ship which the WILLIAM BROWN was not.

WILHELMINA MCLEOD AND SIBLINGS WITH THEIR MOTHER JANET MACKAY IN 1839 and THE JACKSONS ON THE WILLIAM B BROWN IN 1853.

I stumbled across a classified advertisement in an 1839 Gazette for the ship WAVERLEY. I had been looking for the JAMES MORGAN on which I had been told that Wilhelmina and family travelled . It appears now that JAMES MORGAN is the Master’s name and the ship on which they immigrated is the WAVERLEY.

THE WAVERLEY seems also to be carrying Irish convicts so I shall begin looking. The Mcleods and Mackays are registered as from the SUTHERLAND SHIRE of SCOTLAND and coming as immigrants.

Finding that curly one caused me to wonder about the WILLIAM BROWN. I thought that might also have been the Master’s name rather than that of the ship. In fact it is the name of the Schooner and of the owner who, as you will see below, also becomes Master.

Mariners and Ships in Australian Waters

There’s many a story to tell . . .

Masters, crew, a stowaway or two; passengers, cabin, saloon and steerage; births at sea, deaths at sea; deserters; vessels with one crew and one passenger and those with 70 crew and hundreds of passengers; simple single sail boats, barques, brigs, large steam ships; whaling voyages, regular coastal passenger trips, voyages from other Australian ports, London, San Francisco, China and other exotic ports – you will find them all here. 

The lists on this site are being transcribed from the State Records Authority of NSW Reels of the Shipping Master’s Office, Inwards Passengers Lists . . . . . . are added to weekly.

 

MARY ANNE WARNER provides this detailed site. I just found the WILLIAM B BROWN on it. The schooner on which the JACKSONS came free in 1853. Mary Anne has a gracious way of dealing with things which I envy and a knack of saying thanks to her helpers which I lack. Great Site.

 

AND FROM NLA. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article667247  The Maitland Mercury… Saturday 21 May 1853, page 2. News

The William Barry Brown, schooner, left
Honolulu 17th February, and called at Strong’s
Island. The crew of the Paragon, whaler of

Nantucket, Captain Nelson, were there, that
vessel having been wrecked on the outer reef on
the 20th March ; she had been out 27 months,
with 400 barrels, and part of the crew came on

to Sydney in the schooner. On account of some
misunderstanding existing between Captain
White, who commanded the William Barry
Brown,on her leaving Honolulu, and Mr. Brown

the owner, Captain While was left at Strong’s
Island.
