"The Somerset Years", by Florence Chuk, page 66 begins a chapter on the Himalaya, with a description of the voyage.
She mentions a dispute some emigrants had - wanting to board when their luggage was loaded at St Katherine's Dock, instead of having to wait till after the Government Inspection at Gravesend, then to be taken to the moored vessel by a small steamship.
Has notes on John and Margaret Chivers, James and Harriet Commins, George and Anne Vagg, and names John and Eliza McMillan as also from Somerset.
The Himalaya was a small, new vessel purchased by her 27 year old Master, Hew Burn. On arrival, it had achieved the best passage time from Plymouth to Port Phillip, of any vessel to this date.

15 Oct cleared for Sydney with part of original cargo from London, Passengers Mr and Mrs Strode, Major Lettsom, Messrs Bowman and Leman, 8 in steerage and 10 prisoners

In 1840, Daniel Rutter Long (1804-1886), his wife Helen (1804-1906) and their six children arrived in Melbourne from England on the barque Himalaya. The were accompanied on the journey by Mrs Long’s brother Henry Gilbert Jones and her nephew William R Hinks. The family landed at Sandridge (now Port Melbourne) and were rowed ashore by Wilbraham Liardet in his whaling boat ‘ferry’. Helen’s brother, Henry was to become medical dispenser to the aboriginals of Melbourne (or Western Port District) and also produced a remarkable suite of 12 etchings around 1841 – probably the first in Victoria – showing various views of early Melbourne.
The son of a chemist and druggist, Daniel Rutter Long had completed a seven year apprenticeship with fellow Quaker Jacob Bell, founder of the Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain. In Melbourne, he worked first as a surgeon’s assistant in Collingwood and, by 1841, was managing the pharmacy of Dr Wimott, the first coroner in Port Phillip. Long was also an artist of “inconsiderable talent who painted hundreds of scenes in oils” of Victoria and surrounding colonies. In 1843, he established his own pharmacy in Bourke Street where Governor LaTrobe’s family were among his clientele.
Jason WITHERS (17.1.1815 Baydon,Wiltshire; bp?18.6.1815 -21.1.1881 Ullina Station, Chiltern, Victoria, Australia) According to Jason PALMER (384285223) he went to Australia on his own & decided his brothers should join him. They brought workers and stock. After getting married, arrived 30.9.1841 at Port Phillip as Intermediate Passengers on the Himalaya. (Sarah Ann was b 22.1.1841 at sea.)
Robert Stanlake of Saltwater River and Pakenham South (1817-1896).
Two of Victoria’s earliest pioneers, Robert Stanlake and his wife, Jane Webber, arrived in the Port Phillip District of New South Wales upon the “Himalaya” in 1840. Initially employed by His Honour Charles Joseph La Trobe, the Superintendent of the Port Phillip District, they afterwards settled in Melbourne where Robert worked as a carter.
George Vagg 1840 - 30th September. George Vagg (Aged 21, Farm servant, Protestant, Literate) and Ann his wife (aged 18, Nursery Maid, Literate) arrive in Port Phillip, Australia, aboard the Himalaya. From "The Somerset Years" by Florence Chuk.
