Sarah Lister's Timeline

United Kingdom
January 5, 1859
Age 25
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]
