Ship: 610 tons
Captain: Benjamin Bruce
Surgeon Superintendent:
Sailed London 11th June 1857 - arrived Lyttelton 3rd October 1857

The ship Glentanner.....had a very rough experience on the voyage out to Lyttelton in 1857. She sailed from Gravesend on June 11th, and experienced fairly good weather until August 20th. The ship then ran into a very heavy gale, and was thrown on her bean ends. The mainmast-head gave way also the mizzen topmast and jibboom, which carried away the foretop gallant mast and foretopsail yard. Nearly all the sails were carried away. When the masts went down the ship righted herself, but it was not until the following day that she could be got before the wind, and then she could only spread her foresail and foretop mast staysail. By this accident one of the seamen was killed. The Glentanner brought 163 passengers...

DAY family:
Daniel Day was a bricklayer early in life. He came to New Zealand with his wife Mary in 1857 on the ship Glentanner arriving on October 3rd, 1857. Along with them were their children daughter Eliza (aged 8) and son Robert (aged 10). Daniel farmed at Ladbrooks and then Springston.   On his retirement in 1870, Daniel leased his farm to his son-in-law, Henry Kimber and named his home "Sutton Royal". He died in New Zealand on 30th January, 1904 and is buried at Springston Cemetry, New Zealand. His son Robert, my great grandfather, took his family to Argentina in 1880's and from there to Queensland in 1910 when my mother was born. He certainly lived an interesting life and moved around the world like a lot of others who are our ancestors. If you have a connection with this family or would like to know more please contact Kevin Rigg.
