The barque Royal Saxon sailed from Cork on 19 March 1841 bound for the Colony of NSW as Bounty Passengers for JB Were Esq who received 3962 pounds for his consignment of 231 immigrants, 17 from England and the rest from Ireland, including 22 from Limerick and the largest group of 73 whose Native Place was Tipperary.
Amos Shumack and his wife Mary were passengers, also Edmond Finn aged 20, kept diary notes and wrote Garryowen's Melbourne: a selection from the chronicles of early Melbourne, 1835 to 1852 by Garryowen, edited by Margaret Weidenhofer for sale.
The Royal Saxon berthed at Williamstown upon arrival in Port Phillip Bay on 17 July 1841. The Port Phillip Gazette of Thursday 21 July 1941 printed a detailed cargo list which included a large consignment of alcoholic drinks: brandy, gin, whisky, wine, ale, beer, stout; foodstuffs: bacon, cheese and hams; building materials: nails, slates, deals (boards or planks), dunnage boards; and general merchandise and apparel - all much needed goods for a young settlement.
Melbourne in 1841 was a busy port and commercial centre in an agricultural setting. Commodities and rent were expensive. For example: a single edition of the newspaper cost one shilling and the rent for a shop with a parlour and a kitchen in Queen Street was 2 pounds 10 shillings a week. There were advertisements for auctions of livestock, building materials and even food which reflected the demand for such goods. Entertainment included concerts and recitals and agents, accountants, architects and tailors were notifying the public of their professional services.
