NEW ZEALAND PASSENGER LISTS
MANDARIN
LONDON TO AUCKLAND
21 JUNE 1843 - 14 NOVEMBER 1843

On the 14 November 1843 the MANDARIN arrived in Auckland with 31 boys from Parkhurst Prison on the Isle of Wight. The ST GEORGE had brought 98 of them in 1842 to a very mixed reception.

Quakers in England had arranged for the segregation of young offenders at the prison, and for them to be taught useful trades. They would be pardoned if they agreed to go to New Zealand to live and work, where directed.

For more information see: - PARKHURST BOYS

These names are taken from "The First Fleet of Auckland" by Darry McCarthy 1978 ISBN 0-473-00010-5.
