Andrew Jackson
Ship: 1252 tons
Captain: J McCallum
Surgeon Superintendent: Dr J L Kingston
Sailed London May 18th 1865 - arrived Auckland August 24th 1865

The Andrew Jackson, an American clipper-built ship of 1,252 tons, which made two voyages to New Zealand with passengers, was one of the fastest sailers afloat, but never had a fair chance of making  a record passage to either of the ports visited - Auckland and Otago.....the next voyage of the Andrew Jackson was to Auckland in 1865. She sailed from Gravesend on the 18th May, from Dover on the 20th, and was off the Lizard two days later. On June 19th she encountered a heavy squall from eastward, which struck her almost without any warning, and although sail was shortened with all possible speed, five of them were split to ribbons. She struck another severe gale on the 21st July, which lasted some hours, and met icebergs. On this trip on the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th July, she made runs of 296, 311, 306 and 321 miles respectively, making a total of 1,234 miles in four successive days, an average of 308 miles per day, or nearly 13 knots per hour - an excellent record. The ship arrived in Auckland harbour on the 24th August, after a passage of 96 days from Dover. She brought out 269 passengers. There were three deaths (adults) and two births during the voyage. Captain J McCallum was in command. The Andrew Jackson made twelve previous voyages, six of which were from New York to San Francisco.

Mary ELEMENT & family:
Mary Element left Worcestershire with her three surviving children in 1865 and sailed South to New Zealand to re-join her husband George.  He had arrived there the previous year (by the Ida Zeigler) and nominated her and the children for assisted passage. George became a land owner in a few years and established himself as a painter and signwriter. They both left New Zealand around 1871, although the children remained, and they began new and separate lives for themselves when they arrived in Australia. If you have a connection with this family or would like to know more please contact Tom Element.
