Ship Coromandel from London England to Adelaide Australia 1836

Contributor: Suzanne Hirst
Date: 31 Jan 2001

The 'Coromandel' ship was 662 tons, built in Quebec in 1834, Owners "Ridgway". Port,Liverpool. The 'Coromandel' left Blackwall Dock, London 1st Sept. 1836. for Adelaide, South Australia. Left the Downs, at Deal in Kent on September 9th 1836. Had trouble clearing the Goodwin Sands. (these are freezing cold waters that conceal treacherous sands, which were nicknamed "the graveyard of ships"). The Coromandel reached the Cape of Good Hope on November 5th, Stayed and took on freshwater, fruit and vegetables. Captain Chesser gave the passengers time to improve their health with good food and water before he set sail again on November 28th. The Coromandel arrived in South Australian waters and dropped anchor at night on the 10th January 1937 in Nepean Bay of Kangaroo Island. She safely berthed the next day near to Kingscote where the South Australian Company had set up headquarters for the new colony. The ship discharged goods which it had carried out for the company and also some passengers. After a few days the ship set sail again across Backstairs Passage and up the Gulf of St. Vincent to anchor in Holdfast Bay at Glenelg. This was where other emigrants had moved to after Colonel William Light had declared it was the best location to establish a future city and that the indigenous aboriginal people named the Kaurna tribe had proved to be friendly. These earlier ships had then disembarked their passengers who were now tenting in the sandhills whilst they explored the terrain and looked for good water.

The crew and passengers were

Note from Suzanne: Others known to be on board ship were John and Elizabeth Harrison. Frederick and Elizabeth Hobbs. Two marriages took place on the 18th September between John Steer and Jane Ann Bryant, and William Wiseman and Sarah Breach. Many of those named had wives and some children with them, it was stated that over eighty young couples were on board so a witness at the double marriage is named being Emma Harrison Stephens. My own ancestor is John Watts and he had with him wife Ann (always known as Nancy) and son of a few months, John Avery Watts. John listed himself as a tanner so as to fit in with the call for certain trades but he was a qualified tailor.
