John Lister's Timeline

Worksop, Nottinghamshire, England, United Kingdom
January 5, 1859
Age 26
Lyttelton, New Zealand

Jan. 5, ship .Clontarf, 1,100 tons, John Allan from Plymouth, Sept. 20,

The Clontarf has had a fair passage out of 106 days from Plymouth. She is a full ship, as may be seen by the passenger list below,; having no less than 470 souls on board, inclusive of crew. A few of the passengers are for other ports. The voyage has not been distinguished by any remarkable incident, a little cold and boisterous weather in the southern latitudes forming its only disagreeable portion. The causes of the deaths mentioned below were in all cases constitutional. Seventy -six cases of measles occurred, but all progressed satisfactorily, without any death, and the epidemic had passed away before the ship reached port. Lat.3s° 10' S. Long. 4 19' E. spoke the ship Tasmania for Melbourne 54 days out. A stow-a-way was discovered on board, when the ship was 10 days at sea. On landing here, he was brought before the Magistrates and obliged to sign a promissory note for his passage, payable in a year.

[List of Government passengers included John Lister and Sarah Martin with her parents Philip and Mary]
