William Bryan
Ship:Barque 312 tons
Master:Alexander McLean
Surgeon:Henry Weekes
Departed:Plymouth, 19 November 1840
Arrived:31 March 1841

From ship's log for 31 March 1841: "Being a fine day proceeded to land the emigrants without delay. Strange as it may appear, many of them has become so attached to the ship which displeased them so much at the early part of our voyage, that we had great difficulty in inducing them to make a proper despatch. But acting on a slight knowledge of human nature, the children being placed in the boats first the parents were not long in following - in this manner all were landed safely before sunset. Thus were disembarked, after being confined 140 days on board a crowded ship, without a single loss, every individual (including 70 children) who sailed from England. And this success may be mainly attributed to a strict and constant observance of cleanliness, ventilation and order."
