Return to SA Passenger Lists,1847-1886

ship Confiance, 858 tons (old measurement), Captain Robert McCartney, from Plymouth 10th June 1854, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 12th September 1854

South Australian Register Wednesday 13th September 1854
Tuesday, September 12th :- the ship Confiance, 858 tons, McCartney, Master, from Plymouth June 10th 1854 with 331 Government emigrants.
20th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1854 ; 3 births and 1 death on the passage ; M.E.B. Nicholson, surgeon-superintendent.
The Confiance

This Government Emigrant Ship arrived yesterday from Plymouth, after a passage of 94 days. Three births occurred during the voyage, and only one death (that of an infant), the Emigrants are, for the most part, from the Emerald Isle.... ...Arrived on the 12th September, and landed 334 souls; there were five births and two deaths, one of which was a new born infant. She arrived in good order, but the young women being upwards of a 100 in number were not generally of the class in demand in the Colony, and many remained unhired in the depot at the final disembarkation of the emigrants.
The Surgeon-Superintendent states, that great inconvenience resulted from the water-closets getting constantly out of order, although one constable was specially appointed to take charge of them. He complains of the porter and port wine put on board as medical comforts, being of inferior quality.
During the past quarter, some of the ships have had a separate oven and a baker appointed, to enable the emigrants to get a supply of soft bread; but the patent yeast put on board, or the mode in which the ovens are constructed, do not seem to answer the purpose intended, the bread not being light and digestible. Some suggestions have been made to obviate the difficulty-one of which is, that malt and hops should be used on board instead of patent yeast; and another that the ovens should be built round with a casing of bricks, to prevent them from cooling too quickly. Both of these suggestions seem to me worthy of attention. I would recommend the ovens to be placed in some part of the ship at a distance from the emigrants apartments. In the Confiance the heat of the oven caused inconvenience to those emigrants who were placed in the poop part of the ship.
By a letter from the Commissioners, I am instructed that in all vessels sailing from England after the month of May, one constable is to be appointed to superintend exclusively the proper management of the water-closets; for which duty a larger gratuity is to be given than to ordinary constables. I think this regulation calculated to be very useful. Only one vessel, the Confiance has arrived since that rule took effect.
I must direct attention to the fact, that the young women who arrived in the Nugget and Confiance, were of a class quite unfitted for the wants of the colonists-the greatest difficulty is experienced in procuring employment for such persons.
