Wild Deer
Ship : 1060 tons
Captain : Kerr
Sailed Greenock January 12th 1883 - sank off the coast of Ireland

Launched at Connell's shipyard in December of 1863, Wild Deer began life as a china tea clipper. In this capacity she made some very speedy voyages and was once in a race back to England with Douglas Castle and Peter Denny. Wild Deer beat both ships in this thrilling race, ably described by Basil Lubbock in his book "The Colonial Clippers". Wild Deer was applied to the New Zealand run in 1871 and this comfortable immigrant ship was to make 10 successful voyages to New Zealand. At the commencement of her 11th voyage in 1883 she ran aground on the coast of Ireland and was lost. Thankfully, no passengers or crew were lost and the immigrants completed their voyage on board the Caroline.
