Agnes Muir
Ship: 850 tons
Captain:
Anderson
Surgeon Superintendent: Dr Clark
Sailed from Glasgow December 3rd 1870 - arrived Otago March 6th 1871

Five passages to New Zealand were made by the Patrick Henderson ship Agnes Muir, 850 tons, and on each occasion she brought out a fair number of immigrants. In her four voyages to Port Chalmers she brought out 351 passengers, and on the only occasion that she visited Auckland she had 94 passengers, of whom 64 were immigrants. Upon this trip to Auckland was made one of the several attempts    that have been made from time to time to acclimatise grouse, but all the birds died during the voyage. London was the port of departure for the voyage to Auckland, and also for the 1874 voyage to Port Chalmers, but the remaining three passages were from Glasgow.
