Amelia Thompson

Amelia Thompson
Ship:Barque 477 tons
Master:William Dawson
Surgeon:James Evans
Departed:Plymouth, 25 March 1841
Arrived:5 September 1841

The Amelia Thompson, named after the owner's wife, and the second of the Plymouth Company ships, left London on 25 March 1841. She carried 187 Devonshire emigrants, 104 males, 83 females.
The ship arrived off the Taranaki coast in the most tempestuous season, so it was said, that the whalers or the natives remembered to have experienced. The voyage took five and a half months, with a stop at Salvador in Brazil for 4 days, and at Wellington for a fortnight.
The Amelia Thompson arrived in New Plymouth on 3 September 1841, although it was not possible to leave the ship until 5 September, the passengers landing at Moturoa Bay and beach.
