Return to SA Passenger Lists,1847-1886

barque David Malcolm, 600 tons, Captain G.B. Lee, from Plymouth 24th January 1855, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 30th April 1855

South Australian Register Tuesday 1st May 1855

Monday April 30th, 1855:- the barque David Malcolm, 600 tons, G.B. Lee, Master, from Plymouth January 24th
Passengers: Dr. D. Mahoney, surgeon-superintendent in the cabin and the following emigrants in the steerage. . . .
14th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1855 ; 3 births and 1 death on the passage ; Dr. David Mahoney, surgeon-superintendent.

barque David Malcolm
Arrived from Plymouth on the 30th April. She landed 239 souls. During the voyage three births and one death are reported. This is a teak built ship and well adapted for emigrants, but she was sent to sea insufficiently caulked ; a good deal of leakage was the consequence, and the bedding of the people was often wet. The single women by this ship were of a class unsuitable for this colony. The discipline and general management of the people reflected the greatest credit on Dr. Mahony, the surgeon-superintendent and on Mr J.B. Lee, the master of the ship. The David Malcolm brought fifty-two young women without any return of the countries from which they were selected ; but judging from their names, they appear to have been almost all Irish.
