Owen Glendowner
Ship: 911 tons
Captain: Norris
Surgeon Superintendent: Mr H J Webber
Sailed Plymouth August 12th 1864 - arrived Auckland December 18th 1864

The Owen Glendowner, a fine ship formerly belonging to the Blackball Line, made a good passage to Auckland in 1863. She was a vessel of 911 tons, under the command of Captain Norris, who had previously visited Auckland in the ship True Briton in 1852. The Owen Glendowner sailed from Plymouth on June 13th, and arrived at Auckland on September 19th, making the run in 98 days, port to port. On July 11th, during a heavy squall, seeral sails were carried away and a boatswain was washed overboard. He was never seen again, and it was supposed the ship passed over him. Two other deaths occurred - a first-class passenger from typhoid, and an infant. The ship landed 250 passengers, all in good health. A few Albertland settlers arrived in this ship, which made the one trip only to New Zealand.
