The barque Brightman made numerous voyages to the Australian Colonies in the 19th Century

The barque Brightman built at Howrah, Calcutta India in 1826 was listed as 384 tons.

Her most famous voyage seems to have been her carrying of the last emigrants to arrive before suspension due to the grave financial crisis of the fledgling South Australian colony in 1840. Bound for South Australia

But she made at least 2 other voyages to the South Australian colony in 1849 and 1854 Passengers in History

It is worth noting that on the 15th of December 1856 a ship listed as the Brightman was abandoned in the Atlantic Ocean with the loss of a crew member. Survivors were rescued by the Alice Thorndike. Brightman was on a voyage from St. Stephen, New Brunswick to London. WIKIPEDIA
