The SYDENHAN departed London on 2 November, 1880, and arrived in Auckland on 21 March, 1881. Captain R T Miller was in command.


Transcribed from the Auckland Star, 22 March 1881, Page 2.




About 10 o'clock this forenoon the signal denoting "a barque outside Tiritiri" was observed on the Mount Victoria signal staff and about 11 a.m. It was altered to "Inside Tiritiri." the prevailing opinion was that the vessel was the Sydenham, barque, from London, and the opinion was confirmed on the arrival of the s.s. Glenelg, which went alongside on the passage from Tauranga, when just outside Tiritiri, and threw several papers on board. Owing to the strong southerly breeze and ebb tide, she will not reach the harbour until 7 or 8 p.m. The Sydenham is now 114 days out from London, and brings about 100 passengers reported all well. She is consigned to the New Zealand Shipping Company Limited.    

The New Zealand Shipping Co's Sydenham Capt. R. T. Miller, left London on November 2, for Auckland, consigned to the New Zealand Shipping Co., Ltd.
