Cathcart
Ship: 1387 tons
Captain: Crawford
Sailed London 10th June 1874 - arrived Lyttelton 29th August 1874

A remarkable passage was made by the fine iron clipper Cathcart to Lyttelton in 1874. A ship of 1,387 tons, built four years previously by Robert Steel, of Greenock, she sailed from London with 481 Government immigrants on the 11th June, and from the Downs three days later, making the passage in 70 days 12 hours to the Snares, and arriving at Lyttelton on the 29th August, 76 days from the Downs to port. The equator was crossed on the 21st day out. On the 28th July she made a run of 304 miles, and the following day 293.

Mutiny on board Cathcart
Four of the crew of the Cathcart having during the voyage broken into the fore-hold, broached cargo and secured drink; one of them was brought aft and placed in irons; another, having attempted to rescue him, was also taken in charge, but while being secured the first prisoner escaped to the forecastle. Captain Crawford and the officers going forward to recapture him, were prevented from doing so by several of the crew, who made use of threatening language. The Captain, finding that the mutineers would not listen to reason, returned to his cabin, and after deliberating with his officers, armed himself and went forward the second time. Finding the doors of the forecastle closed, he demanded admission. Previous to this, part of the crew had left the mutineers. Those within refused to open the doors, threatened the Captain, and said that they meant shortly to be masters of the ship. Arguement was useless, and the door on the starboard side of the forecastle was, in spite of much resistance, partly forced open with hand spikes, and the Captain, again warning the mutineers, fired three times amongst them, three of them being wounded. An entrance was effected and the mutiny quelled, the ringleaders and others being placed in irons. On the arrival of the ship at Lyttelton the men were brough before a magistrate and charged with endeavouring to make a revolt. Four were sentenced to twelve weeks' imprisonment with hard labour, and two to one month additional for assaulting the Captain.

Thomas worked on the "big tunnel", Christchurch then they went to Reefton in response to the gold rush, bought land & built a small house. As family grew larger ,a larger house was built over the small one! Mary was a well known midwife and travelled widely by foot to care for women, and also look after the husband and other children at the time of the birth.  Later she took patients into her own home and had many prominent clients such as doctors and judges. The well known NZ runner Lovelock was delivered by Mary.  One story recounted was of an American couple who arrived in Reefton just as the woman was due to have her baby.  The husband asked to be taken to the "best nursing home in town" and the coach driver took them to Mary's house.   A child, Phillip, was born and when the couple went home to the USA for a holiday when he was 4, he was left in the care of Mary.
