The Duke of Roxburgh was a timber hulled merchant barque of 498 tons (also cited as 417 tons) registered in London and sailing between Great Britain and the Australasian Colonies. It was an Indiaman built by Smith and Sons at Newcastle-on-Tyne in 1828 for Green and Wigram.

The ship had a crew of 24 hands. The Duke of Roxburgh was one of the earliest immigrant ships to Port Phillip, South Australia and New Zealand. In the supplement section of the 1840 and 1841 Lloyd's Register the ship was noted as being sheathed in yellow metal in 1839. Its owners were J Somes and Collard.
