ZEALANDIA, ship, 1032 tonsCaptain Foster to the port of Lyttelton. Sailed from London 3 September 1863 Arrived 8 December 1863 to anchorage at 4 o’clock

Lyttelton Times, 10 December 1863, Page 4
We gladly welcome back the “Zealandia” and her Captain; on the present occasion more particularly because the “Zealandia” has, up to date, made the quickest passage from London to Lyttelton this year.  She left on the 3rd September, and in consequence of a severe gale met with in the Channel was obliged to put back to the Downs.  On the 10th made another attempt, and the pilot parted wither on the 14th.  During the passage to the Line spoke the Derwentwater; and again on or about October 13th.  Met with fine weather the rest of the passage, which occupied 96 days from the Downs.   The Snares were sighted on Sunday last, and the late S.W. gale assisted the vessel to her anchorage on Monday afternoon about 4 o’clock.  The “Zealandia” is consigned to Reece  & Co.  Amongst the articles enumerated in the manifest will be found the frame and fittings for the new steamer ordered out by Mr Reece during his stay in England; the remainder comes out by the Canterbury, which sailed from London on the 22nd September.  Captain Foster lands all his passengers in excellent health.
