Such was the rush of people to emigrate to New Zealand that they could not all be accommodated on the ships already chartered by the company, and a additional vessel put on the berth to take those who had been shut out of previous ships was the Bolton.
She left Gravesend on the 19th November, three days later she was off the Isle of Wight and took just under a month to reach Santa Cruz, Teneriffe where she made a call. She was a slow craft and didn't reached Port Nicholson until 30th April 1840. All the Bolton's passengers were landed at Thorndon Beach, and the greater part of them lived in very primitive shanties known as Bolton Row until they could build themselves something more substantial. Among the passengers were the
Rev's J. F. Churton and J. G. Butler, the second and third clergymen to be sent out by the company.
