Countess of Kintore
Ship: 752 tons
Captain: Reynolds
Surgeon Superintendent:
Sailed London May 22nd 1872 - arrived Auckland August 30th 1872

The Countess was described as an Aberdeen clipper, built in 1866 by Duthie. She came out to the several ports under charter to the Shaw, Savill Co., and, as will be seen from her records, made some fast passages for a vessel of 700 tons. Keen efforts were being made in those days to acclimatise European birds in New Zealand, and several shipments were entrusted to the care of Captain Petherbridge (a well known Captian of the Countess), who took a personal interest in the matter. In 1870 he brought out in the Countess of Kintore 50 rooks, which were landed at Auckland in splendid condition. In 1876 thirteen salmon were brought out to Lyttelton by the Countess, which was then in command of Captain Norie.
