'MATOAKA' Partial Passenger List
For voyage to Auckland,NZ.
Departed Gravesend 15 June 1859, arrived in Auckland, NZ, 26 September 1859, after initially stopping at Wellington, under command of Capt. Alfred Stevens.
Capt. Stevens was well known and liked in New Zealand, and was responsible for carrying in many of the familiar English birds such as linnets (greenfinches), thrushes and blackbirds, as well as goldfinches and yellowhammers, and many others. He made several trips to New Zealand, but sadly, on the return voyage to London in 1869 he and his ship disappeared without trace, along with 45 passengers, 32 crew, and a cargo which included 9000 ounces of gold valued at £80,000.
Core material drawn from "Mangonui, Gateway to the Far North", by Neva Clarke McKenna, additional material from 'The River, The Valley, The People', by Gwenyth Frear; comments are our own. Since that time we have access to Auckland Arrivals on-line records, and there it is possible to extract the entire passenger list. Take it with some salt, however, as the family names in RED shown below were known to be on the voyage, but do not show on the AKL listings.
