Jessie Osborne
Ship: 1058 tons
Captain: Falconer
Surgeon Superintendent:
Sailed Glasgow November 7th 1875 - arrived Lyttelton 31st January 1876

The Jessie Osborne, chartered in the 'seventies by the New Zealand Shipping Company to convey immigrants to the Dominion, was a fine full-rigged ship of 1058 tons, and when fitted up to carry passengers was comfortable and a fast sailer. Prior to trading to New Zealand, and when on a voyage to California, she was driven ashore, and the wreck was purchased by an American firm. Her name was then changed to Mariposa. She made one pasage to Liverpool from San Francisco, but she was then bought back by the original owners., and her name was again changed to Jessie Osborne. She was in 1876 chartered by the New Zealand Shipping Company, and after completing two voyages to New Zealand, was sold to a Norwegian firm, converted into a barque, and re-named Okta. Some years later, in 1913, the old barque, still bearing the same name, was loaded with a cargo of jarrah timber in Tasmania, and sailed for Falmouth. She put into Bluff harbour in distress, struck the Pelham rocks, Sterling Point, and became a total wreck.
