John Temperley
Sailed London March 10th 1866 - arrived Lyttelton June 21st 1866

The John Temperley sailed from Auckland for London on October 25th, 1865, taking Colonel Wyatt and the second half of   the 65th Regiment - about 267 rank and file. The ship also took Home 68,000 worth of gold. The following year the John Temperley came out to Lyttelton, leaving London on March 13th and arriving at Lyttelton on June 21, a passage of 100 days. The ship had another rough experience when in the Southern Ocean. She encountered a terrific gale, which carried away many sails. Heavy seas swept the decks, carrying away a large portion of her bulwarks, smashing up two boats and doing other damage.
