James Methers 38 died 6 Mar (at Sea) another list includes him after reaching Port Phillip, came Apr 1840 on the Glen Huntly Rootsweb query - I have located this ship ‘Glen Huntly’ on the AUSNZ website as arriving Port Phillip, Victoria Bay, April, 1840 (no "day" mentioned). A family relative, James Mather/Methers, was aboard this vessel which sailed from Greenock, Scotland. It is noted on his gravestone in Montrose that he died "aboard" this ship. He was 39 yrs. old. However, I'm wondering if there is anything recorded about problems on board the Glenhuntly before its arrival, i.e. fire, storm, etc. If anyone has information he/she could pass on, I would be most appreciative. Just what was it like sailing the "high seas" in those days??

Answer
On 7 April, 1840, the ship Glen Huntly arrived in Port Phillip Bay with fever on board.
