The Parker family from Sussex came abord this ship in 1838. John Wesley Parker was a cabinet maker who had been contracted by the NSW, and he bought his wife and 5 children with him. The ship was quarantined at Manly on arrival, and whilst there, the youngest child, Mahala passed away and was buried there. Her grave is unmarked.
