https://portphillippioneersgroup.org.au/pppg5ej.htm REV. JOHN HAM, MELBOURNE'S FIRST BAPTIST MINISTER They travelled in a new, 429 ton barque named the "Dublin" which called at Dublin, Ireland after leaving Liverpool. It was their intention to settle in Sydney but their ship called first at Port Phillip in December 1842. While in Melbourne the Rev. Ham was invited to preach in the Mechanic's Institute and the Collins Street Independent Church. He was well received and representations were made to him to stay in Melbourne. He initially agreed to stay on for a month during which time he would preach regularly in the Mechanics' Institute while his wife and children continued their voyage to Sydney. The following month, as he was about to set sail for Sydney on a coastal vessel, he was persuaded to stay longer in Melbourne, so his family returned from Sydney in March 1843 on the "Christina."

Rev. Ham's eldest daughter, Miss Jemima Job Ham married the captain of the ship, Captain George B. Duniam two days later. They were married by special licence in St. James Anglican Church, Melbourne by the Reverend Adam Compton Thomson.

http://www.searlecanada.org/sunderland/sunderland122.html Dublin (a barque) Gross: 380/429 The vessel is Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1842/43 thru 1852/53 only. It was initially owned, thru 1847/48, by Deaker & Edmonds, of Dublin, Ireland, for initial service from London to Australia but from 1843/44 for service ex London. 'Duniam', per LR, served as the vessel's initial captain until part way thru 1843/44 when 'Jones' assumed command. 'Wakefield' was the vessel's captain from part way thru 1845/46 to 1846/47. So far I have spotted 3 Dublin voyages to Australia. a) The vessel, under the command of George B. Duniam, left Dublin maybe in Jun. 1842, & arrived at Melbourne on Dec. 13, 1842, with free emigrants amongst its passengers. It went aground, on or about Jan. 11, 1843, departing Melbourne for Sydney but suffered no damage. It arrived at Sydney on Jan. 20, 1843 with 26 passengers, plus 48 is steerage & much of its original cargo. It would seem that the vessel stayed quite a while at Sydney. It left on Aug. 28, 1843 for London via Melbourne with a cargo of colonial produce. b) the vessel left London in early Jul. 1844 (Downs on Jul. 5, 1844), under the command of Captain Jones, for Sydney via Plymouth & St. Jago (Cape Verde islands). It left for London on Jan. 14, 1845. c) the vessel left London for Sydney, maybe via Tasmania, on Aug. 1, 1845, under the command of Captain Wakefield & arrived at Sydney on Dec. 15, 1845. On Apl. 14, 1846, the vessel left Sydney for Hull & was reported off Plymouth on Sep. 12, 1846. I have not checked for later voyages. In 1848/49, LR lists Edmonds alone as her then owner, still of Dublin, for continued service ex London. In 1850/51, per LR, Brooke & Co., of Liverpool, became the vessel's owner for service from Liverpool to Calcutta (now Kolkata), India, with 'Robinson' serving as the vessel's captain. As per line 1673 here, on Jul. 16, 1852 the 380 ton barque foundered at Sandheads (an area of shoals about 130 miles SE of Calcutta), while en route from Calcutta to London with East Indies produce. Crew of 13 - none lost. Then stated to be owned by John S. Dawson, a name not LR referenced. Now we know that the vessel was lost in 1852, it is a puzzle that Marwood's North of England Maritime Directory of Mar. 1854 lists the vessel as registered at Liverpool, owned by Brook and Worthington & captained by W. H. Robinson.
