Sailed London September 8th 1868 - arrived Lyttleton December 12th 1868

Described by the Lyttelton newspapers as "a model ship throughout, with excellent accommodation for passengers", Glenmark was an Aberdeen clipper of 958 tons. As a new ship she departed on her first voyage to New Zealand on October 30th 1864 and arrived at Lyttelton on January 21st 1865. In all Glenmark made eight voyages to New Zealand, all of them to Lyttelton. After loading 80,000 in gold at London in early 1872 and having on board 50 passengers and crew, Glenmark sailed into oblivion. She was never seen again and there was no evidence as to what happened to her, her passengers or the gold.
