Passengers sailing between San Francisco & Sydney / and Sydney & San Francisco 1849-1851

extracted from The Shipping Gazette and Sydney general trade list; from the digitised version of the Sydney Shipping Gazette found at the National Library of Australia website. These lists name each person or family group on board without distinguishing between cabin or steerage passengers. The lists below are just a sampling of what is available on the digitalized SSG.

Most lists don't name the children, however, the Una list appears to name all family members. Some of the lists are in quasi-alphabetical order, which makes them easier to search, but always read the lists to the end. Some passengers appear to travel both ways (business?) where others (eg. aboard Una 212 passengers) seems to show quite a large number of Irish and Scots. Did they arrive in Sydney, only to re-embark for San Francisco ?

San Francisco to Sydney | Sydney to San Francisco

Sydney Shipping Gazette, Volume 8, Number 356 (11 Jan. 1851) p. 353—Passengers to California:—Difficulties have occasionally arisen in consequence of persons getting away to California without the knowledge of those with whom they have been connected in business—or, in other words, bolting. This could scarcely occur if the parties interested were to pay a visit to the Water Police Court, and look after the clearances. Information will readily be given by the Officers of the Court and no person can escape from temporary difficulties in this way without detection, if he is looked after. The list of passengers by the Emerald Isle can be seen at the Water Police Office. (ship Emerald Isle, 501 tons, Captain Holt, sailed from Sydney for San Francisco 18th January 1851 with above 100 passengers [no published list])

Brig Regia, Port San Francisco, August 29, 1849

Captain Johnson—Sir,—We, now at the termination of our voyage, which although we at one time considered protracted, has nevertheless been more speedy and successful than that of any other vessel which preceded us, beg to express our sincere thanks for the kindness you have shown us thoughout, and the attention you have in every case paid to our wants. Although perhaps we are exceeding our bounds in making any remark with respect to the navigation of the vessel, we cannot omit mentioning the able manner in which, notwithstanding the dense fog by which we have been surrounded, and the very defective chart which you had to guide you, you have brought us safely into port. We heartily congratulate you on your safe arrival, and our best wishes for your future welfare and happiness, we beg to subscribe ourselves.

Yours very truely,

H.N. Greenwell, W.H. Wyatt, Charles Stenart, Wm. Smith, Thomas Kington, C.J. Tibbey jun., John Fairweather, Richard Day, George Howell, George W. Graham, Charles Pasfield, Henry A. Miller, M.W.

To the Passengers on board the Regia

Gentlemen,—It was with much pleasure that I last night received an address expressive of your congratulation on the termination of our voyage, and conveying your thanks for my kindness and attention during the passage. I beg to answer you that I feel highly gratified to find that my endeavours to promote your comfort have been so appreciated as to elicit such an agreeable mark of your esteem, and cannot but remark on our arrival in this much wished for harbour, that during many periods of our voyage your steadiness and excellent behavious called forth my admiration, and will, I trust, in the new world we have now reached, command the success and properity which you so well deserve.

Yours, &c.
R. Johnson

barque Emma, 295 tons, Captain Devlin
from San Francisco 23rd November 1850, arrived Sydney 7th January 1851

The Emma:— Captain Devlin has kindly favoured us with the following interesting account of this vessel's passage:— The above vessel sailed from the anchorage on the 23rd November, 1850, and has made the passage over in forty-five days, and from land to land in thirty-seven days, having been beating off a lee shore the first seven days after leaving the port, with gales veering between south-west and west-south-west, and a mountainous sea from the westward. She ran from the land to the Line in sixteen days, which she crossed in 156'50 west, carrying strong winds the whole time between north-east and east, passed seventy miles to the eastward of the Navigator group, and within one mile of the island of Vavau ; sighted Turtle Island, and carried moderate winds between north-east and east-north-east to the extreme of the Southern Tropic, when I experienced a series of moderate gales between west-north-west and north-west, accompanied with much thunder, lightning and rain. Barometer receded to 29'40 and stood so for six days in continuance. Sighted Lord Howe's Island on the 1st January, and experienced light south-west winds and fine weather for several days. On the 4th had a strong southerly gale, which lasted eighteen hours, when the wind became light at south-east to east, with fine weather, until I made land yesterday of Newcastle. Made the run for the meridian of Sandwich Islands to Sydney Heads in twenty-seven days.
