Name Artemisia
Type Barquentine
Built Sunderland, Durham, England
Launched 1847
Registered Tonnage 492 tons (old measurement) / 558 tons (new measurement)
Owners Anthony Ridley

Artemesia was built in Sunderland, launched in 1847. Her maiden voyage was carrying emigrants to Moreton Bay, New South Wales (now in Queensland, Australia). On her return voyage, she carried a load of wool.

Artemisia had a barquentine rig, so the image in the Illustrated London News is incorrect, since it shows the mainmast as being square-rigged rather than gaff-rigged.

The last time that Artemisia appeared in Lloyd's Register of Shipping was 1854. No ship with the same tonnage, year of launch, or place of launch appears in the 1855 edition, so she may have been lost. (Or broken up, although she was listed as "A1" in the 1854 edition, so that doesn't seem likely.)
