this list omits details from the ship list of calling, religion and ability to read and write. Other details of life in Port Phillip are being sought

Allan Ker

arrived 27 Nov 1841, barque 600 tons, Archibald McKechnie master, from Greenock 14 Aug 1841 to Port Phillip Agent Messrs Robert Kerr and Co Images 171-179
Staff Captain Archibald McKechnie, Dr James Martin, 1st Mate John Millar, 2nd Mate Malcolm McGechnie, 3rd Mate David Rintoul
11 Cabin Passengers - Mrs Jane Martin, Mr Gidian S Lang, Mr Thomas Thompson, Mr William Ferguson, Mr Walter Greir, Mr John Jeffry, Mr John Horn, Mr Francis Atkinson, Mr James Robinson, Mrs Mary Campbell, Miss Maria Campbell,
Steerage - Henry O'neill, William Hill, Robert Haldene, John Russell
250 immigrants under Dr Martin who reported 9 children died, also Mrs Sarah Paine died of comsumption and child birth.
Gratuities totalling 204 pounds were claimed for 240 souls landed, including 4 males and 2 females born, less 1 female adult and 6 children who died during the voyage.
10 not eligible for Bounty payment including Margaret Stafford refused Bounty, another 9 girls were judged to be not under proper Protection, so Bounty was refused for their passage to Port Phillip.
This meant less money was paid to the master, Surgeon and three Mates, as Gratuities, and less Bounty refund to the Agent who organised the voyage, and paid the expenses.

In 1842 Dr Martin was appointed the first Assistant Colonial Surgeon in Portland.

In calculating the amount of Bounty to be paid to the Agent,
Excess of unmarried males over single females - 24
Less excess of single women in 'Catheriene Jamieson' - 5
Remaining excess of single women over single women to the present date - 19
Amount of Bounty with-held until an equal number of single females arrives - 361 pounds.


'Perilous Voyages to the New Land' by Michael Cannon, page 77 - Mary McKenna aged 26, from County Fermanagh posed as a single woman for a free passage to see her husband, a private in the 96th Regiment of British foot soldiers then stationed in Victoria.
