South Australian Register Monday 9th April 1855

Sunday April 8th, 1855:- the ship Northern Light, 1283 tons, H.W. Plain, Master, from Liverpool December 11th [1854].
Passengers: Mr. John T.S. Jolley, surgeon-superintendent in the cabin and the following emigrants in the steerage. . . .
10th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1855 ; 8 births and 3 deaths on the passage ; Mr. J.T.S. Jolley, surgeon-superintendent.

ship Northern Light
Arrived from Liverpool on the 7th of April bringing to the Colony 445 souls. She was commanded by Mr. Henry W. Plain and Mr. John T. S. Jolly was the surgeon-superintendent, this being his fourth voyage. It gives me pleasure to say that he performed his duties very efficiently. The immigrants, with the exception of some of the single women, seemed to me a well selected class of persons.
