-----------------

Richard Burgess Sayer sailed from London, England on the 15th September 1839 on the Ship "Oriental", and landed at Port Nicholson, Wellington, New Zealand on the 31st January 1840 after a four and a half month journey. The NZ Company's Embarkation Register of Assisted Emigrants states that he was a bricklayer, single and aged 21.

It is not known when Burgess joined the Police Force, but it must have been shortly after his arrival in NZ because 3yrs & 4 months after arriving, he was Chief Constable of Wellington, NZ, when a notice appeared in the "NZ Gazette" & "Wellington Spectator" of the 17th June 1843, which was signed by Richard Burgess Sayer, Chief Constable.
