Return to SA Passenger Lists,1847-1886

ship Sir Thomas Gresham, 596 tons, Captain John Manning, from Plymouth 28th November 1857, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 9th March 1858

. . . . — 2nd ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1858 ; —3— births and —0— deaths on the passage ; Dr. James Peter Hill, surgeon-superintendent.
ship Sir Thomas Gresham South Australian Government Gazette 13th May 1858
Arrived from Plymouth on the 9th day of March. This ship was commanded by Mr. John Manning and Mr. James P. Hill was the Surgeon-superintendent ; to both of these gentlemen the greatest credit is due for the very efficient manner in which they discharged their various duties, and the harmony and co-operation with which they acted for the benefit and comfort of the people. No death took place at sea, but three births added to the numbers originally embarked, so that 230 souls were landed. Mr. Hill, the Surgeon-superintendent, and Mr. Manning the master of the ship, received a most kind letter of thanks from the emigrants, on the arrival of the ship ; in which they strongly expressed their gratitude to these gentlemen for the “unwearied, kind, humane and obliging attentions” which they had evinced on all occasions.
I may add that such a testimonial to these gentlemen was not less well-deserved than it must have been satisfactory to them. Only nominated emigrants arrived by this vessel, and as such may be serviceable to the friends who sent for them ; but, as a body, I should have considered them ill-suited for the demand in the labour market.
The numbers from the different parts of the United Kingdom were as follows—: from England 30, Ireland 175, Scotland 25.
 
On many occasions I have had to refer to the excellent arrangements of the commissioners in all that regards the provisioning and arrangements of emigrant ships with what care the endeavor to supply such dietary aid will tend to the comfort and health of the people, especially of the young children. I find in some of the late emigrant ships a new species of preserved milk which is by far superior to any thing of the kind previously used Grimwade’s Patent Desiccated Milk, prepared at Sheepcote Farm, Harrow-on-the-Hill, Middlesex.
It is in the form of a powder, in corked bottles, and seems never to be affected by length of keeping ; it requires for use merely to be mixed intimately with hot water in a certain proportion, and it forms as pure and sound nourishment as that newly drawn from the cow, and shows under the microscope all the characteristics of healthy milk. Families in towns, for whose young children good milk is an essential part of food, might with much more advantage use this preparation than the useless, and often deleterious, stuff which I sold as milk…
I have the honor to be, Sir,
Your most obedient servant,
H. Duncan, M. D,
Immigration Agent
