The barque Ceres made at least one voyage to the Australian Colonies in the mid 19th Century
The 380 ton barque Ceres was built at Bremerhaven in Germany in 1847. Under Captain H. C. Schunemann she carried 81 German emigrants to the South Australian Colony in 1850.
- Note that vessels of similar names made similar voyages in the 19th Century. At least one CERES of 119 tons under the command of Andrew Murray made voyages between Melbourne and Sydney including February of 1855 as seen in the Mariners and ships in Australian Waters.
