Reiherstieg
Brig: 294 tons
Captain: Oehlmann

Surgeon Superintendent:
Sailed Cape Town October 26th 1864 - arrived Auckland December 24th 1864

Christmas, 1864, could not have been a very happy time for most of these new arrivals. On Christmas Eve, the "Reihersteig" - the third immigrant ship to arrive within three days - dropped anchor in Auckland Harbour. As there was no room for the passengers at the Onehunga Barracks, they were put in tents there. On 23 January they were forwarded to their settlement at Maioro, opposite Port Waikato where some of the men were able to find employment. It was not until 31 March, however, that they were put in possession of their individual allotments.
