MATILDA WATTENBACH














The MATILDA WATTENBACH left Gravesend on 2nd June, 1862 and arrived in Auckland, 
on 8th September, 1862, under the command of Captain W Goudie. 







Transcribed from the "Daily Southern Cross", for Tuesday, 30 September 1862














Yesterday morning the good ship 'Matilda Wattenbach' 954 tons, Captain W. Goudie, with 352 
passengers of the nonconformist body, and a general cargo, came to an anchor in the harbour after a 
quick passage of 98 days from Gravesend. Left Gravesend on the 2nd June, made the Lizards on the 9th,
and Maena on the 17th. On the 27th of the same month, in latitude 8 north, 21 west longitude, spoke
the Prussian corvette 'Altona' and put letters on board for home. Passed Cape de Verde and Canary
Islands without sighting any of them, and crossed the equator on 4th July, in 22 west longitude. Light
southerly and variable winds had been experinced up to this date. On the 17th July, struck a leading wind
off Rio, and on the 27th, made the parallel of Cape of Good Hope, where she experienced strong heavy
gales of westerly wind, and lost her main and mizen topmast. Ran down the easting between the parallels
of 45 and 49, and on the 28th August passed Van Diemen's Land. Sighted the Three Kings on the 2nd
inst, and anchored on Sunday off Rangitoto. Yesterday morning rounded the North Head, and came to an
anchor in the harbour at 9 o'clock. Two births occurred during the passage, and five deaths: three
children died of convulsions and teething, a young woman named May Ann Becroft, aged 19 years, of
phthisis, after three months' illness, and a fatal accident occurred on June 23rd, to an able bodied seaman
named William Robertson, who fell from the fore topmast head, and received such serious injuries as
caused his death six hours afterwards. Otherwise the general condition of the passengers' health has
been very satisfactory. The 'Matilda Wattenbach' is in a cleanly condition, and the passengers speak
highly of the treatment they received from the captain and officers durimg the voyage.
