South Australian Register Thursday 26th April 1855

Wednesday April 25th, 1855:- the ship Caroline, 967 tons, R. Walker, Master, from Southampton January 11th.
Passengers: Mr. Burke, surgeon-superintendent in the cabin and the following emigrants in the steerage. . . .
12th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1855 ; 6 births and 13 deaths on the passage ; Mr. John Matthew Burke, surgeon-superintendent.

ship Caroline
Arrived from Southampton on the 24th of April with 358 immigrants. There were six births and thirteen deaths at sea. The ship was commanded by Mr. Ramsay Walker, and Mr. John M. Burke was the surgeon-superintendent. The general management on board was good, though it was found necessary to withhold the gratuity of the chief mate, as his conduct was far from satisfactory. The immigrants by this ship appeared to have been well selected.
