barque Ramillies, 740 tons, Captain Robert Wright, from Plymouth 8th August 1860, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 11th November 1860

. . . . — 2nd ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1860 ; —4— births and —3— deaths on the passage ; Robert Robinson, surgeon-superintendent.
The South Australian Advertiser, Monday 12 November 1860 p. 2

The Ramillies was boarded on Sunday, the 11th instant, and arrived under the command of Captain Robert Wright. She reports leaving the London Docks on July 27, and calling at Plymouth ; embarked all her emigrants, 287 Souls on August 6 tripped anchor from Plymouth Sound on the 8th, standing out to sea with a fresh breeze from W.N.W.

Ten days after sailing sighted and passed the Island of Madeira to the eastward, and on August 25 sighted the island of St. Antonio, one of the Cape de Verde islands. Remarkably light winds were experienced when running down the Atlantic ; and the meridian of the Cape of Good Hope was not made until October 9. Strong E.S.E. winds from that time prevailed until nearing the South Australian coast.

The Ramillies has, however, under any circumstances, when her antique build is considered, made a most smart voyage, which has been greatly shortened, as regards its monotony to the emigrants by the kind conduct of the captain, and also the Surgeon-Superintendent, Mr. Robertson, who has previously had charge of emigrants, having arrived here in the ship Hooghley, and also about two years since in the Caucasian. The present charge under him appears a far superior class of persons than we have ever had here previously, and are spoken well of by those who have charge of them, being orderly, clean, and well-behaved.

From the summary there appears of English, 194 adults, children between 1 and 12 years of age, 49, and 6 infants ; Irish, only 3 adults and 3 children ; Scotch, 26 adults and 4 children ; being a total of 249 English, 8 Scotch, and 30 Irish. On boarding the ship on Sunday morning, we could scarcely think those persons stated to be emigrants to be such. Under a spread of Sunday canvass, coupled with their superior behaviour, they vastly differed from those that have previously arrived. The ship throughout was clean, and well ventilated.
The trade classification of the immigrants is as follows:- Printers, 1 ;carpenters, 2 ; errand boy, 1 ; housekeeper, 1 ; tailors, 2 ; bricklayers, 2 ; bullock-drivers, 1 ; labourers, 38 ; miners, 40 ; shoemakers, 2 ; maid servants, 48 ; laundresses, 2 ; cooks, 4 ; dairy women, 6 ; smiths, 3.

During the voyage, the Surgeon Superintendent has been occupied in several cases of measles, but the ship has for some time been clear of sickness. Four births have occurred during the passage, and three deaths. One, an adult female, from delirium tremens through intemperance shortly after embarkation, the other two were infants. On the arrival of the Ramillies she was taken charge of by Mr. Pilot Woolnough, who brought her to anchor for the night, and intimated his determination to get into harbor this morning, Monday. On our reporter boarding, Mr. George Pleydell, who arrived as a passenger, gave the following list of vessels spoken during the voyage: Aug 14, in lat. 41 10'N.,13 15'W., the barque Onnie of Lubeck, port of departure and destination unknown ; August 21st, lat. 26 21 N., long. 20 49' West," signalised the barque Bezaliel, from London, bound to the Cape of Good Hope ; August 26th, lat.14 54' N., long. 25 55' W. signalised the Russian ship Elvinza, from Cardiff, bound to Manilla ; and at 3 p.m. boarded the barque Orient, from Algo Bay, bound for London ; August 27th, lat. 13 39', long. 25 8 W., spoke the Bremen ship Detma Heinrich, from Sutherland, bound to Point de Galle ; September 9th, lat.1 43S., long. 25 51' W., signalised the ship Robert Pulsford, homeward bound ; September 24th, lat. 24 51' S., long. 22 51 W., signalised the Swiftsure, from Melbourne, bound to London, 42 days out ; September 16th, lat. 20 15' S., long. 31 26' W., the barque Gundela, from Callo, bound to Hampton Roads.

In the Reports by the Emigration Officer, Dr. Duncan, there was often mention made in regard to Nominee's or General Emigrants ; the list below made a special effort to separate those into two lists, so, I have combined these but made notations alongside the family name, thus, General Emigrants = GE and Nominee = N. — Robert
