Nimroud
Ship: 1022 tons
Captain: J Edmonds
Surgeon Superintendent:
Sailed London December 28th 1862 - arrived Auckland April 27th 1863

Many of our early settlers came to Auckland by the ship Nimroud, a vessel of just over 1000 tons, chartered by Willis, Gann and Co., which made three voyages out from London in the 'sixties. The second voyage of the Nimroud was made in 1862-63, under command of Captain Edmonds. She sailed from London on December 28, 1862, but owing to a heavy storm in the Channel she had to put into Deal, which port she did not leave until December 31. She arrived in Auckland on April 27, 1863.
