INCHINNAN: The 565 ton "Inchinnan" left London on 14 January 1852 and left Portland 14 days later on 28 January 1852 under Captain T Innes with members of the Royal New Zealand Fencibles Corps. Passengers included 78 Pensioners, 68 Women and 113 Children who arrived in Auckland on 27 May 1852. As well as a medical surgeon, Dr Henry Rickards, the ship had a hospital assistant. There were 10 births on the journey and 22 deaths, mostly children who contracted measles and children pox. The men and their families were settled in empty cottages around the four villages and not settled collectively as a unit as the earlier detachments were. Many of the men were firstly involved in repairing the roads around the villages as well as the road between Howick and Otahuhu.
