South Australia:


Unfortunately for Government records, this was the time of the Gold Rush. (No record of the Blundell found on South Australian or Victorian Archives.) On 29 February 1852, the Blundell was still in the Bay. [1] All the sailors had cut and run and gone to the diggings. On 18 May The Argus reported that it had finally left on 22 April.[2] It arrived back in London on 2 October.
