*Matthew Eraut (Herrex) BENNETT was a painter decorator, and his eldest son, Matthew John BENNETT, ran an Importors and Decorators business in 'K' road and Newmarket in Auckland - similar to Phillips and Impey - from about 1880 until 1930. (Suzanne Watt-Bertoni)


Arrival of the Ironside from London

The fine ship Ironside, Captain Vaux, arrived in harbour yesterday evening, after an average passage of 110 days from Gravesend.

She took her departure on the 6th May and had a good run down channel; passed outside the Cape Verd Islands and had very indifferent N E trade winds. Crossed the equator on the 11th June, in longitude 27degrees W and soon after picked up the SE trades which for the first part proved strong but latterly poor and light. Crossed the meridian of the Cape of Good Hope on the 4th July, in lattitude 36 degrees and ran down her casting between the parallels of 35 degrees and 37 degrees. From longitude 14 degrees to 160 degrees, experienced very heavy weather. Passed the southward of Tasmania and sighted Cape Maria van Diemen on the 21st instant, since which time she has been baffled with light airs and calms. No land or ships were sighted during the passage.

The Ironside brings an addition to our population of 197 souls all in good health and the ship has arrived in port in a clean and creditable condition. There were two deaths (children) and two births on the passage.

The Ironside is a fine iron-built ship of 868 tons, launched in 1861 and has excellent accommodation for passengers. She has a large quantity of cargo for this port and is consigned to Mr D Nathan.

The following is a summary of the trades or callings of the passengers on board:

20 labourers: 3 blacksmiths: 13 female servants: 6 bricklayers: 2 sawyers: 2 joiners: 1 quarryman: 1 stock-keeper: 2 bootmakers: 4 carpenters: 1 ?Minister: 1 tailor: 1 sub-editor: 1 jeweller: 2 farmers:
1 schoolmaster: 1 housekeeper: 1 baker: 1 gardener: 1 pearl worker: 1 carrier: 1 cowkeeper: 1 smith: 1 cabinetmaker: 1 mariner: 1 watchmaker: 2 grocer: 1 engine fitter.
