Timandra

Timandra

Barque – 382 tons

Captain – JL Skinner

Surgeon – George C Forbes

Sailed from Plymouth, England on the 2nd November 1841 and arrived in New Plymouth, New Zealand on the 24th February 1842.

The soutest and best-found of all the vessels sent out to New Plymouth, New Zealand was the barque “Timandra” at 382 tins with Captian Skinner, which made the passage direct in 113 days. Bringing 212 passengers which was the largest number sent out in any six vessels. Her cargo included two sets of moorings for the roadstead. One set was laid down about two miles from shore. It was intended to land the other set, but one of the anchors was lost when being sent ashore on a raft, and the other one of the pair was taken to Sydney where it lay so long on Moore’s wharf that the wharfage came to more than it’s value and it was eventually sold by auction.

The fine ship had a pleasant voyage out. On the way out a call was made at Capetown, South Africa, where a fortnight was spent, including Christmas Day. In marked distinction to many of the emigrant ships of the 1850’s and 60’s, the Timandra was a happy craft, and everyone had a good word to say for her. Among the passengers was Mr. W Devenish, whom brought out with him a small flock of Southland down sheep, the first seen in New Zealand. The Timandra seemed to have been in luck all the way through, for she landed her passengers and cargo without a hitch in perfect weather, during her ten days stay off New Plymouth, New Zealand.
