Sailed London 8th September 1871 - arrived Lyttelton 9th December 1871

The Zealandia, a fine iron clipper-built ship of 1116 tons, was built for the Shaw, Savill Co, in 1869 ande made her maiden voyage to Lytteton. The Zealandia was a beautiful ship, specially designed for carrying passengers. Her saloon was spacious and lofty. and the cabins were unusually large and well ventilated, having extra large portholes to them. The decoration of the saloon was extremely chaste. She had some special cabins for families, and a ladies saloon. The second cabin was on deck and the berths were larger then usual and well lighted. The Zealandia, after completing 31 voyages to New Zealand, was sold to the Russians. She was stranded in 1811, and sold to a firm in Nova Scotia.

Carlina and Annie SHREMPF travelled with their school-teacher uncle, George EVERISS, leaving their mother Ann in England. Carlina and Annie were born in America; their father Carl SCHREMPF (known as Charles SHREMPF) ran a musical store in Toledo but had died in West Virginia during the civil war. After his death, their mother Ann had returned to her family in Gloucestershire and married again, to Thomas DRAKE. In 1874, mother Ann, again widowed, came to New Zealand on the 'Ocean Mail' with son John and three other EVERISS brothers: Ezra, George, Ethan and Andrew. Carlina married Thomas GIFFORD, farmer in Rongotea in the Manawatu. Annie married Henry Waring SAXTON, civil engineer in New Plymouth.

Moses Scott:
John Lee & George Scott had arrived in New Zealand on board the ship Ramsay in June 1870. Their mother, Mary Scott, had arrived a little later on board the 1870 sailing of the Zealandia. Moses Scott (b. 24.8.1834) also joined his brothers, but to date I have been unable to find the ship on which he emigrated. However there is a written notation against William Scott’s name on the Zealandia 1871 sailing, which says "and brother" which could point to Moses. Should you wish any more information on this Scott family or have any information on Moses Scott, please contact Lesley Wootton

James William Clubley Crompton, was the fifth child and fourth son of Richardson Crompton and his wife Hannah, nee Clubley, was christened at Flamborough, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, on 10 October 1854. The UK 1851 census shows the family living at the 124 acre South Lea Farm, Flamborough. His father died on 24 August 1859. The 1861 census shows that his mother, Hannah, was running the 130 acre Moon Farm, Flamborough. Sometime after 1861 Hannah married Richard Huddleston and four of her children emigrated to the Christchurch area of New Zealand. First Stephen Clubley Crompton (SE Crompton?), the eldest child
christened in Flamborough on 28 October 1846, arrived Lyttelton on the Dona Anita (3 January 1865). Later his sister Emily Hyde Crompton, christened at Flamborough on 5 October 1855, on the Westland which departed London 21 November 1879. The ship on which his second brother, Thomas Richardson Crompton, christened in Flamborough on 19 October 1848, and who died at Clarendon Farm, Winchester in the County of Geraldine on 19 March 1919, sailed has yet to be traced. Nothing is known of James' life in New Zealand. Should anyone wish to contribute to the growing family tree of James William Crompton please contact Richard Crompton or view the family website at
