PIONEERS & SETTLERS BOUND FOR SOUTH AUSTRALIA



Return Home

1839         1840       1841       1842       1843       1844       1845      

The EMIGRANT LABOURER FREE PASSAGE SCHEME, an idea presented by Edward Wakefield, was accepted by the Colonization Commissioners of South Australia.
This scheme ended at the end of December 1840 through lack of funds.
By the end of 1839 there were approx. 14,030 persons in the new colony.

Ships of over 300 tons, which were too big to enter Port Adelaide, discharged their passengers and cargoes at Glenelg. Floatable goods were pitched overboard and tided into the creek to the Customs House. The Customs House and flagstaff were erected in November 1839 for the accommodation of the Customs Officer and the crew of the two landing waiters. Pilots fees were still being collected on the fishing fleet of 35 vessels and for the landing of mail from the steamers until the 1880s. At that time it was called Port Glenelg.

The WEST BRITON NEWSPAPER on Jan. 25th, 1839 reported that two gentlemen named Gleeson, a Mr Lock and Captain Bellew, with their respective families,
and Mr John Donnithorne (1824-1887) were all men of large capital, and come to settle in South Australia, bringing with them about GBP 7000 in specie (7000).

In the diary of a person who emigrated to South Australia during this time, was mentioned that it was the general rule that one could get access to one's main luggage only once per month which meant getting enough linen, clothing, etc. for the following month. We can scarcely imagine what it was like for these people, especially those with small children, to live for so long
[18 weeks = 126 days] in such a small area. We understand that the CATHERINA was 350 ton. The BRIGHTMAN, built in Calcutta at about the same time, was 384 t.o.m. Her measurements were 108'7" long x 28' wide x 5'10" high 'tween decks
