Return to SA Passenger Lists,1847-1886

ship Thetis, 573 tons, Captain Richard Breckon, from Plymouth 21st May 1854, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 31st August 1854

South Australian Register Friday 1st September 1854
Thursday, August 31st :- the ship Thetis, 573 tons, R. Breckon, Master, from Plymouth May 21st 1854 with 226 Government emigrants..
19th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1854 ; 6 births and 5 deaths on the passage ; Robert Johnston, surgeon-superintendent.
ship Thetis
Arrived on the 31st August, having been one hundred and four days on the voyage ; she brought 227 emigrants; seven births and seven deaths occurred at sea.
This vessel, in its present state, is not well adapted for an emigrant ship ; the rigging is old and bad, and there was great leakage throughout the ship on both sides, wetting the bedding and causing great discomfort to the emigrants. I think it wonderful that sickness did not prevail to a much greater extent on board this ship. The people seemed a very eligible class, finding ready employment — and the Surgeon-Superintendent performed his duties very satisfactorily. At the muster, a strange but serious complaint was lodged by four single girls against the Surgeon-Superintendent. On investigating this charge, I found that these four girls were the worst behaved females on board, and it seemed that they had agreed among themselves to make a charge against the Doctor, by way of making the first attack ; but there was abundant evidence that their accusation was utterly untrue.
