bullet  General Notes:

Fifeshire
Ship: 557 Tons
Captain: Harford Arnold
Surgeon Superintendent: William Spence
Sailed London 17th September 1841 & Downs 2nd October 1841 - arrived Nelson February 1st 1842
Fifeshire was one of the first four ships to Nelson and on her maiden voyage when bringing out settlers of the New Zealand Company to Nelson. Lord Auckland, Mary Ann, Lloyds all set out on the same day, the Fifeshire being the first to arrive. These four ships brought out 764 people to Nelson. The Fifeshire was an unlucky boat from the start. During the voyage fever broke out and 17 passengers died, their bodies being buried at sea. Until the scourge began to abate the passengers were in a most melancholy state, as they did not know where it was going to end. When navigating Cook Strait the ship nearly came to grief. The pilot took her between Stephen's Island and the mainland and, the wind failing at a critical moment, it looked as though she would go ashore, but Captain Arnold sent away a boat with a kedge, which dropped in the nick of time and the ship hauled of into safety.
