Jessie Readman
Ship: 962 tons
Captain: A Strachan

Surgeon Superintendent: Edward Husband
Sailed London September 22nd 1872 - arrived Wellington December 15th 1872

The Jessie Readman, a sister ship to the Christian McCausland, would have completed her twenty-third voyage out and home but for the disaster which befell her in 1893, when homeward bound from New Zealand. The Jessie Readman was an iron ship of 962 tons, built by Scott, of Greenock, for Patrick Henderson, and later sailed under the Shaw Savill flag. She was a speedy and comfortable ship, and brought many thousands of immigrants to the Dominion. In 1893, while on her homeward journey after loading wool at Dunedin and Napier she ran aground and was lost on the Chatham Islands.
