ship Taymouth Castle, 682 tons, Captain Adam Logan, from Plymouth 7th February 1854, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 3rd May 1854

South Australian Register Thursday 4th May 1854

Wednesday May 3rd, 1854:- the ship Taymouth Castle, 680 tons, Logan, Master, from Plymouth February 7th.
Passengers: Mrs. King in the cabin and the following emigrants in the steerage. . . . — 8th ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1854 ; 11 births and 2 deaths on the passage ; Jonas King, surgeon-superintendent.

ship Taymouth Castle :—
This Government emigrant ship arrived yesterday, as elsewhere more fully announced, after a passage of 84 days from Plymouth, from which port the departure took place on the 7th February, with 286 souls exclusive of the officers and the crew. The official classification of the emigrants is as follows:-
Married couples 46
Single men 10, Single women 116
Children above one year & under 14 years, male 29, female 31
Infants under one year, male 4, female 4
Births, six occurred during the voyage
Deaths, one infant from dysentery
Total single 126   
Total 286   
Total 292   
Total 291   
. . . so that the total number of souls on arriving was five more than the period of departure from England. We have learned with great pleasure that there has been much harmony during the voyage, and that the emigrants, who appear to be in high spirits, speak very warmly in praise of the Surgeon Superintendent, as also of Captain Logan, his officers, and crew. The Weather is said to have been extremely favourable during the voyage. The Emigrants are chiefy from England, and their healthful condition is highly satisfactory.

The "Taymouth Castle" arrived from Plymouth on the 3d of May, after a passage of 86 days, with 295 emigrants ; 11 births and two deaths occurred at sea. The ship was in very good order. The arrangement of the berths in this vessel was on a different system from any hitherto employed. They were grouped together in blocks on the telescope principle, so that when not in use they might be reduced to half their size ; and the tables were constructed in such a manner as to be allowed to occupy the vacant space during the day. I am not disposed to look on this system as being a desirable mode of berthing emigrant ships. When it becomes necessary to allow one emigrant to remain in bed during the day, the table in that group of berths cannot be used, and about 11 persons are put to great inconvenience for the sake of one. Where no great amount of sickness prevails, such a system might not seriously interfere with the general comfort of the ship, as arrangements might be made to meet individual cases of temporary sickness; but were any general epedimic [sic] to prevail, the inconvenience produced by the wants of the tables would be excessive. The inner half of the bottom boards of the berths, constructed in the manner described, were fixtures ; this is decidedly objectionable, as it interferes with the proper cleaning of the ship. The surgeon-superintendent recommends that the different beds should be numbered, as great disturbance was caused amongst the young women every time the beds were taken on deck, by their disputes about ownership. In this ship there was put on board by the Commissioners an oven capable of baking about 160lbs. of bread at a time, in order to afford the emigrants, especially the women and children, an occasional supply of soft bread ; the supply of flour to the emigrants was, by this means, issued to them four times in the week, in the shape of soft bread. This is a great improvement, and, I think, if adopted in all ships would not only add greatly to the comfort but also to the health of the people, if precautions were taken that means are used for properly leavening the bread, so as to make it light and digestible.
