THE 1850'S 
The new ship owners of note were James Baines and Co, [Blackball Line] James Beazley [Golden Line management], Fox [Fox Line] George Thompson [White Star Line]
Miller and Thompson [Golden Line] the Fernie Brothers [Red Cross Line], Shaw-Savill-Albion[Shaw-Savill-Albion line]. Gibbs Bright [they had a small partnership with James
Baines in the steamship trade] James Beazley was a Broker for the Golden line at this time he later bought the Thames and Mersey Line in the 1880’s. This purchase was made for his son and he renamed it the Australian Shipping Company. He gave the management of the newly named line to Gracie, Beazley and Co.

One should also remember that numerous ships were privately owned and were not members of any particular line and that they also brought thousands of emigrants to the colonies.
When gold was discovered in Australia in 1851, shipping companies from all points of the compass were rushed by would be gold seekers. Crews, who also wished to get rich quick, were deserting the vessels that brought the diggers to Australia. Vessels were tied up in ports such as Melbourne and Geelong in Victoria, with no way to sail out due to crew desertions.
Bullion Carriers.
The first ship to take gold back to England was the White Star liner, ‘Phoenician’, which carried almost 100,000 pounds worth of gold to Plymouth in 1852.
The ‘Albatross’ was next and she landed 50,000 pounds worth at Liverpool in August 1852.Her sister ship, ‘Eagle’ arrived at Kent with 150,000 ounces of Australian gold in late November 1852, this was a record shipment.
The following vessels are a supplementary list of passenger ships that brought emigrants to Australia and New Zealand, most had cabins and berths that could be dismantled and stored while a cargo of wool or grain took its place aboard the homeward bound ship. The list below is by no means complete and much detail is still required. Many of these vessels had little other connection with the colonies save for one or two voyages but I include them for those who may be searching for a family vessel which went to Australia or New Zealand.

Tips on family ship research: Passenger lists are available at most State Libraries and as long as you know at which state, or port your forebears arrived, it should be a simple matter to find the name of the vessel that conveyed them. When you have found the ship on which your family arrived, re-check the passenger lists in your library and make sure of the ships name, captain, tonnage and if possible, the arrival date with the local newspaper of the period. This should give enough cross reference to make sure it is the correct vessel, if your vessel was a small brig or perhaps a once only visitor, it may never have had photographic or painted representation and may not have even been registered with Lloyds. Much enjoyment can be had from finding newspaper reports of your vessel arriving in Australia or New Zealand
You will note that many ships listed in the main register appear to be also listed below. These are for the most part, not the same ship as in the main register but are in fact older or younger vessels of the same name.

SECONDARY REGISTER OF EARLY  PASSENGER SHIPS
Sydney Cove to Hobart
Although the main register contains hundreds of vessels that brought emigrants to the colonies, many more made only a single voyage, were lost, were not popular due to wetness, or had an unpopular crew or master.

The ships and captains that proved reliable were always much sought after and photographs, lithographs and paintings were soon in daily use on advertising brochures, calendars and newspapers.
Shipping lines operating from the Blackwall docks were very well patronised due to these sturdy and well built little frigates being renowned for their safe voyages. They were extremely popular with sightseeing visitors when in port.

Even though many of the masters of these ships made an effort to keep their passengers comfortable and well fed, life was certainly not all roses. Seasickness and ill health took its toll on the weaker passengers and also made life difficult for many of those who were fit and able.

The Blackwall frigates of Wigram, Green and Dunbar were very popular before and during the gold rush days but a new breed of American clipper ship proved much faster than anything the British could build. Soon the American vessels were all the rage among British ship owners and buying reached fever pitch.
The new ships also found a new breed of ship owner, new names began to appear among the old and some of them went on to become the greatest passenger line owners ever known.


This secondary register contains many of the lesser-known tall ships that did not attain the fame of their sisters in the main register. They are included here for the benefit of the thousands of families who are third, fourth and fifth generation Australians and New Zealanders.
For historic notation, a few of the first steamships to the colonies have also been included here, as
they were the first steamships to bring passengers to Australia and New Zealand.

‘WHIRLWIND’ Built 1853. Wood ship of 1003 Tons. Built by J.O.Curtis at Medford, Mass, for the Black Ball Line. She was advertised in the Brisbane Courier Mail newspaper in early 1863 as being of 978 Tons register and as James Baines purchased a vessel known as ‘Whirlwind’ in 1862, perhaps the two vessels shown here are one and the same. The problem being that one is shown as being built in Dundee and the other in Massachusetts. The Baines vessel is registered as seen below in 1863/4 Lloyds List. It is possible that she remained on the American registry and not with Lloyds until Baines bought her in 1862. The problem remains that, if this was so, she was never placed on Lloyds by Baines and remained on the American register.

Reg; Liverpool. Master; Captain E. Edgell. Captain J. Bragg. London-Queensland service. Sold by Baines in 1866 This vessel has some confusion regarding its place of construction, It is probable that the two ‘Whirlwind’ vessels were the same ship as they are of pretty much the same weight etc. The 1853 ship is not registered with Lloyds at any year from 1854 to 1863. It is probable that because of the Baines infatuation with American built ships that this vessel, was mistakenly thought to have been built by at Medford, USA.
