The Voyages of the barque San Francisco to the various Australian Colonies in the 1850s.

San Francisco a barque of the Johann Cesar Godeffroy line was built in 1846 in Bjorneborg, and as the British HUGO was purchased on March 13, 1850 from Sieveking, London, and was renamed SAN FRANCISCO.

On her first voyage with the Godeffroy line she left Hamburg 23 - 06-1850 under Captain C.S. Kramer, and arrived Port Adelaide on 14-10-1850.

After leaving Adelaide she may have visited the west coast of America before returning to Hamburg via London in 1851. She made a further three voyages from Hamburg to Australia in 1851, 1854 and 1855. She was finally sold in 1857 in Norway. Bound for South Australia
