This is a brand new project of immigrants arriving in South Australia, mostly under United Kingdom assisted passage schemes, 1847-1886. These lists have been transcribed from the original passenger lists, by Robert Janmaat of Adelaide, who has generously shared them with TheShipsList. Where available, extracts regarding a particular ship have been included, from the Sydney Shipping Gazette and the South Australian Register. The South Australian Government Gazette (return showing deaths on board Emigrant ships 1849 to 5th June 1865) has also been consulted. Additional sources listed below.

note: Be aware there will be discrepancies between the various records, regarding age(s) and spelling of names, passenger details and fomer residence &c. ; any input, additional information and / or corrections from descendants is welcome.

Emigration to Australia

In a recent letter the Bishop of Adelaide gives the following advice to emigrants to this great colony:-
I will now detail what steps are taken in the colony for the assistance of emigrants. Captain Brewer is the emigration agent, whose duty it is to board the vessels as they arrived, and, after examining the condition and discipline of the passengers, to offer such counsel as may be needed for their guidance. In the case of persons destitute of means he is empowered to pay the expense of their journey to Adelaide (eight miles) and the transport of their baggage. There is a row of cottages, built by government, at Port Adelaide, for the temporary accommodation of emigrant families, should they fail to procure situations before compelled to quit the ship. Fourteen days are generally allowed on ship board, after reaching the port, during which they are provisioned.
" The Colonial Labour Office" has been established in Adelaide, opposite the Post Office, in King William street, for the hiring of servants and labourers. This is supported by voluntary subscriptions and has been most useful. A secretary is in constant attendance, who registers all applications, leaving the parties to make their own agreements. In case of single unprotected female servants, the protector of aborigines, Mr. Moorehouse, is directed to receive, lodge and ration such as are in want of refuge on their arrival. There is accommodation for one hundred; and at this depot, which is close to the government house and park lands, the Irish orphan girls are lodged until provided with situations. Notwithstanding the late arrival of 450 of the latter no difficulty occurred in procuring places for all the respectable young females in the Florentia. So many marry that they are always in demand as domestic servants. There is a "Stranger Friend Society," intended to relieve distress arising from sickness among the newly arrived; and there is a fund, dispensed by a government board, for "destitute persons," - widows, orphans, &c. Provided the females and others, who are sent for the House of Charity are able, willing, and respectable, the "Colonial Labour Office" and the "Government Depot" supply all the assistance they need towards settling themselves. I may add that there is much distress and disappointment felt by a very numerous class of educated persons, who arrive without capital, and with very few pounds in their pockets. Immigration has proceeded latterly at the rate of 1000 per month and above. Unluckily, also, the ships have arrived two or three at a time, instead of at intervals. 500 persons came in last Saturday, and this on the heels of the Posthumous, Florentia, Sir E. Parry, and the Inconstant, bringing 200 Irish orphans. In fact, it is quite wonderful how they have been absorbed and where they are dispersed. Wages still are high, and there is no fear of starvation, with meat at 2 1/2d the pound, sugar 3d, tea 2s, and bread 1 1/2d. The natives in fact, live upon the sheep's heads, &c., ox heads and tails, which are given them for any trifling service they perform. Servants of all work, plain cooks, farm servant girls, and nurse girls, are the females most wanted, but people will not engage without seeing. Wages are from £12 to £18. Respectable servant girls are sure to find employment. The government emigrant ships are more respectably conducted than passenger ships, on board the latter the sale of spirits is the ruin of numbers.—Yours faithfully,
AUG. ADELAIDE.
Adelaide, July 30, 1849


Passages to Australia 1853
In the March 1853 "Colonization Circular No. 13 " there is notice of funds provided to the British Emigration Commissioners, by colonial revenues, for assisted passage, by New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. (also stated, for the moment, is that funds were also available for Western Australia and Van Diemen's Land, but no funds were available for assisiting persons wishing to emigrate to the North American Colonies) The rules for those wishing to apply were laid out thus:—
PASSAGES TO AUSTRALIA
The following are the regulations and conditions under which emigrants are to be selected for passages to the Australian colonies, when there are funds available for the purpose.
 
QUALIFICATIONS OF EMIGRANTS

1. The emigrants must be of those callings which from time to time are most in demand in the colony. They must be sober, industrious, of general good moral character, and have been in the habit of working for wages, and going out to do so in the colony, of all of which decisive certificates will be required. They must also be in good health, free from all bodily or mental defects, and the adults must be in all respects be capable of labour and going out to work for wages, at the occupation specified on their Application Forms. The candidates who will receive a preference are respectable young women trained to domestic or farm service, and families in which there is a preponderance of females.

2. The separation of husbands and wives and of parents from children under 18 will in no case be allowed.

3. Single women under 18 cannot be taken without their parents, unless they go under the immediate care of some near relatives. Single women over 35 years of age are ineligible. Single women with illigitimate children can in no case be taken.

4. Single men cannot be taken unless they are sons in eligible families, containing at least a corresponding number of daughters.

5. Families in which there are more than 2 children under 7, or 3 children under 10 years of age, or in which the sons outnumber the daughters, widowers, and widows with young children, persons who intend to resort to the gold fields, to buy land, or to invest capital in trade, or who are in the habitual receipt of parish relief, or who have not been vaccinated or not had the small-pox, cannot be accepted.


Assumed Names
Young females in Ireland sometimes applied for passages out to Australia, and on receiving their embarkation orders, their parents refused to let them go, so they re-applied with the alias name. Alternatively, others had friends whose interest was sufficient to procure free passages. The girls would then apply, and if successful, sell their orders for a premium of five shillings.

extracted from 1857 Session 1 (144) Papers relative to Emigration to Australian Colonies: ..... Dr. Duncan's 1st quarter report for 1856, dated 3rd July 1856 (page 61)
Emigrants leaving the Colony

The immigrants who have arrived during the quarter speedily left the ships in which they arrived, and very few persons remained in any of the ships till the lay days expired.

At first sight, this fact may lead us to assume that they found ready employment, and were immediately absorbed into the population.

I regret to say that, from inquiries which I have made of the shipping agents to the steam ships and other vessels at Port Adelaide, it appears that a considerable proportion of the newly arrived emigrants proceed immediately to Melbourne ; whether it is that they find difficulty in procuring employment, whether the report of higher wages combined with the certainty that if these reports prove incorrect they have still the gold fields to depend upon, or whether finding in England that they cannot get a free passage to Victoria, they apply to be sent to South Australia, knowing that for a small sum they can immediately procure passage to Melbourne ; whether one or more of these circumstances may be supposed to have an influence, the fact is undoubted that a certain portion of the newly arrived immigrants leave immediately on arrival.

The immigrants, during the last quarter, have been of a class superior to the great mass of the immigrants who arrived during the year 1855. Many of them are in possession of funds to enable them, without doing any work in the colony, to leave the place at once. Several instances have come to my own knowledge where individuals and families have openly confessed that they came here merely as an intermediate port on a voyage to join their friends elsewhere. It is at all times more easy to state an evil than to suggest a remedy. In the present case, there are two distinct classes of persons who leave the colony.—

1. Those who come here merely as a stage in a journey to join their friends and relatives at some other place.

2. Those who are induced to leave either from want of steady demand for labour or from the rate of wages paid here being lower that the usual rate ruling in Victoria, to which may be added the inducement, held out by the gold fields.

For the first, the only remedy is a careful selection of the immigrants before sending them to this place. If the selecting agents in England made sufficiently rigorous inquiries before they forwarded applicants to this colony, I think it might be easily discovered whether the applicant really intended to remain in this colony.

So long as there is no lucrative gold-field discovered in this colony, we may expect that the Victorian gold fields, and the consequent higher rate of wages prevailing there, will prove a temptation, especially where there is a difficulty in procuring steady employment here. There is no doubt still considerable dulness [sic] in business generally, and that the farmers have not yet entirely recovered from the deficient harvest of 1854, but there is every reason to believe that the dulness [sic] in trade is steadily improving, and the seasonable rains which we have had give the promise of an abundant harvest.

If the selection of emigrants for this colony were carefully managed, so that persons intending to proceed to Melbourne should not be forwarded to Port Adelaide, I have no doubt that there will be work in sufficient abundance, and wages sufficiently high to counteract every other inducement to leave the colony.

Immigration Agent

Passage Regulations, South Australia 1858 (on-site link)
 

Passages from Dublin and Cork to Plymouth, from Glasgow to Liverpool, and from Granton Pier (Leith) to London, are provided by the Commissioners for emigrants. All other travelling expenses must be borne by the emigrants themselves.
Therefore, if you are searching for assisted emigrants from these ports, look for them sailing from:—
Dublin & Cork, check Plymouth, from Glasgow, check Liverpool and Leith, check London.
