The Voyage of the Immigrant Ship Navarino to the South Australian Colony in 1854

type: ship

size: 479 tons

built: 1808 at Cochin, coast of Malabar, India

sailed: Wednesday, May 3, 1854 from Southampton

master: T. Storey

surgeon superintendent: Edward Gregory Leeson

arrived: Sunday 13th August 1854 at Port Adelaide, South Australia. (passengers disembarked next day)

passengers: 233 emigrants. (4 deaths and 3 births on voyage)


The Government emigrant ship above- named arrived at the Lightship anchorage at a late hour last evening, from Southampton, as elsewhere reported. From the following numerical statement, it appears that the num- ber of souls arrived is only one less than at the period of embarkation : —

Number embarked 234

Births 3

(total) 237

Deaths (infants) 4

Arrived 233

Reckoned as equal to 197½ statute adults. During the voyage, there have been no fewer than 59 cases of measles and 30 cases of hooping-cough, but nothing of the kind was prevalent on board on arrival ; on the contrary, the emigrants, as a body, appear to be remarkably healthy. from the South Australian Register of Tuesday 15 August 1854, Page 2.
