The Voyage of the Immigrant ship Brightman to the South Australian Colony in 1840

The ship was captained by Christopher William Nickells, and the Surgeon-superintendent was J. C. Slewman. She was carrying at least 169 emigrants and such first class passengers as Mr & Mrs Robert Richard Torrens & George Morphett Esq.

The barque Brightman was 3 masted and weighed 334 Tons. She left London on or about August 15 1840, via Plymouth on August 30 (and also Cork according to some records) and arrived in Holdfast Bay, now Glenelg, on the 13 December 1840.

This was the last ship of emigrants to arrive before suspension due to the grave financial crisis of the colony. [1]
