Return to SA Passenger Lists,1847-1886

ship Lord Raglan, 758 tons, Captain G. Mitchell, from Plymouth 14th November 1855, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 7th February 1856

Friday February 7th, 1856:- the ship Lord Raglan, 758 tons, G. Mitchell, Master, from Plymouth November 14th.
Passengers: Mr. and Mrs Litchford, family, and servant & Dr. Pridie, surgeon-superintendent in the cabin and the following emigrants in the steerage. . . . — 4th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1856 ; 2 births and 10 deaths on the passage ; Mr. Robert Pridie, surgeon-superintendent.

ship Lord Raglan extracted from the South Australian Government Gazette 1856 page 326 and 327
 
.....The Lord Raglan arrived on the 7th February, with 286 immigrants, ten deaths and two births occurred before final disembarkation.
I regret to say that fever of a low nervous type prevailed during the voyage ; a fortnight before the Ship's arrival, the Surgeon Superintendent was seriously ill : the Hospital was full, and upwards of thirty cases of fever were under treatment throughout the ship so that, in fact, there was no separation between the sick and the healthy, and the sickness was every day increasing.
There were no buildings on shore into which to draft the sick or the healthy, and it was essential, for the safety of, all that a separation should be immediately be made.
I engaged the services of Mr. Henry Thomas Parke, The Surgeon Superintendent of the Australia to take the medical charge on board, as the surgeon Superintendent attached to the Lord Raglan was unfit for duty. In order to provide separate apartment for the treatment of the sick, I caused all the single Woman who where in health to be removed to the depot ; and their part of the ship being airy and well ventilated was converted into an hospital where the sick were separately treated. I advised all healthy persons on board, if they had friends in the Colony to leave the ship, and by dilution of the poisonous atmosphere the spread of the disease was greatly arrested and it virulence diminished.
From this time, till the final disembarkation of the ship, there was only one death on board in consequence of fever, and only two new cases occurred during that time. At the expiration of the lay days, the sick, about twenty in number were sent to hospital : I am informed they all recovered, with one exception, a man who sank in consequence of an abscess on the liver.
The master of the ship, Mr. G. Mitchell, from the time the surgeon was seized till the ship ..., did most indefatigably and zealously at night and by day, tend and prescribed for the sick to the best of his ability and judgment ; in consequence of which fatigue and exposure to the noxious exhalations of the sick, he also sickened, and was seriously ill.
Miss Mary Coghlan the Matron of the ship, Mary Butler, Edward Coade, one of the constables, and James Stirton, the hospital assistant, were most unceasing in their devotion to the sick.
I most deeply regret that Mr. Henry Thomas Parke, who took medical charge after arrival, fell sacrifice to the fever which he caught on board. ......
