Sarah 3


From on Sunday, 25 September, 2011
Hi Elizabeth,
Have just come across your wonderful site "Came to Port Phillip by 1849" as part of my ongoing research into the ship SARAH which was owned by a relation of mine.
Notice you have this vessel as two sailings into Port Phillip. This is incorrect.
The Sarah which arrived at Port Phillip 2 December 1842 was built in London in 1819 and 488 tons burden, sometimes recorded as 490 tons.
The Captain for this voyage was Francis HEIDRICH and this was her first visit to Port Phillip.
This SARAH had previously traded between London and India/China and first came to Sydney, N.S.W. in 1829 with 200 male convicts.
Came to V.D.L. in 1835 with 196 free emigrants through the London Emigration Committee. Came to Hobart, V.D.L. in 1837 with 254 male convicts.
As it turns out after the Sarah left Port Phillip she encountered a ferocious storm in the South China Sea and when she finally reached Hing Kong, was found to be leaking so badly she was condemned.
I have been researching this ship for the past 2 years and have identified all 18 voyages she made - definitely only the one to Port Phillip.


Sarah barque, 498 tons, Henrick master, Arrived 2 Dec 1842 - from London on 8 Aug. Passengers Mr and Mrs Green and 7 chn, Mr and Miss Walker, Miss Ormsley, Messrs Swatch, Singleton, Wrey, 4 Intermediate and 20 in steerage source Port Phillip Herald - Tue 6th December
