*new* for TheShipsList website
All the new and updated files and databases have been placed on their
own page(s) Find them on the front page in between the big arrows
At the bottom of each of these pages I have placed links named "
previous month " and " next month " so you are able to navigate back and
forth between the monthly *new & updated* pages, as I only keep three
months of *new* page links on the Home page. New for January 2013 is . . .
o Ship Arrivals:
o Ships to Quebec 1831 (in progress)
This has been much more fun than the 1835 arrivals as Marj has been
scanning them for me, so I can read them well ... thanks Marj There are
a few gaps which will be filled in as we go.
o South Australia
o ship Atalanta, from London via Plymouth to Port Adelaide 15th
o ship Charlotte Gladstone, from Liverpool via Plymouth to Port
Adelaide 16th June 1866
o Quebec Steamboats
o Waterloo - 1st trip down, Montreal to Quebec, 16th April 1831 .
. the Waterloo was sunk by ice on April 18th
o St. Lawrence - 6th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 1st June 1831
o John Molson - 7th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 2nd June 1831
Two more 1866 vessels with assisted emigrants, for South Australia. As
I'd said last month, the ships being hired for emigrants were becoming
larger. Both ships have babies born at sea, named for the vessels.
Lots more Irish on the CHARLOTTE GLADSTONE.
I included the single "down" trip for the WATERLOO as she was sunk en
route to Quebec. Miraculously all the passengers survived. The 28th
May 1831 was a huge day for the port of Quebec, with thousands of
emigrants arriving .. the newspaper noted ...
The number of Emigrants arrived this forenoon was 20,126. Of these 5,737
have arrived during the past week. The number actually arrived probably
exceeds by fully ten percent that stated in the return. The * Pilgrim
from Newry for instance returned 150 adults, and upwards of 250 souls
were found on board. The same occurred with other vessels, though not to
so great an extent, At the latest dates eleven vessels had sailed from
Sligo and eleven more were about to follow, all with emigrants. In
former years only one vessel has been known to leave that part of
Ireland with settlers. — Quebec Mercury, June 4.
They crammed them aboard the steamboats. The two I have transcribed for
June 2nd have 500+ but I have one yet to do with over 1,000 passengers.
In 1832 they passed laws limiting the numbers of passengers who could
be carried on the various classes of steamboats .. news item about that
on the steamboat index page ...
