Ivanhoe
Ship: 1034 tons
Captain: Dunn
Surgeon Superintendent:
Sailed Plymouth February 25th 1864 - arrived Timaru June 6th 1864

                                                                                       Lyttelton June 12th 1864

The voyage of the ship Ivanhoe from England to New Zealand in 1864 was marred by no fewer than 25 deaths among the passengers. Twelve of these were cause by low fever. Four births occurred. Under the command of Captain Dunn, the Ivanhoe left Plymouth on February 25. The first death happened on March 21, and eight days later the first fatal low fever case ocurred. Although dogged by bad luck in the form of sickness, the ship made a good passage, under moderate weather conditions, and arrived at Timaru early in June. From that port, however, on account of sickness on board, she was ordered on to Lyttelton, where she arrived on June 14. After inspection by the port health officers, the Ivanhoe was sent into quarantine.
