Return to SA Passenger Lists,1847-1886

ship Velocity, 682 tons, Captain William Paul, from London 7th March & Plymouth 23rd March 1855, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 24th June 1855

South Australian Register Monday 25th June 1855

Sunday June 24th, 1855:- the ship Velocity, 682 tons, Wm. Paul, Master, from London March 7th & Plymouth March 24th
22nd ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1855 ; 2 births and 1 death on the passage ; Mr. Augustus Davies, surgeon-superintendent.

ship Velocity
Arrived on the 24th June, bringing to the colony 248 souls ; of these 117 were young women, few of whom are likely to find employment. The casualties at sea were two births and one death. Mr. William Paul was the master and Mr. Augustus Davis the surgeon-superintendent of the ship ; the discipline and the general order of the people and the clean state of the ship reflect the greatest credit on those in charge. The ship itself is not particularly well adapted for emigrants ; the ports are too near the water line, rendering them useless for ventilation.
