1840 Eliza from London 4th Jan 1840 - Captain John Mann and 159 passengers, arrived Port Adelaide on 14th May 1840. The Eliza left Adelaide on June 8th for Timor put back through stress of weather and for repairs. She had got to the westward as far as 125 degrees, when she encountered a tremendous gale of wind from the westward, which drove her back to within a short distance of Kangaroo Island. Having lost her jib-boom and some of her spars, and sustained other damage, Captain Mann then bore up for Port Adelaide for repairs.
