    2. Hi Pam, If you are interested, my husband's gg grandfather William Kerridge and his wife were on board the Marchioness of Londonderry. William kept a diary from the time the booked their passage to Australia. They were supposed to sail on the"Louise" I think the name of the ship was and there was a complication and they were transferred to the Marchioness. Actually, they had boarded the ship and set up their cabin, when they left the ship to complete some business. When they returned the ship had left and they had to rush by train to the south of England to catch up with the ship when she next pulled into port, (maybe Portsmouth?). I have not got the exact details with me at the moment, however tomorrow I will go through my records and give you more information. To read the diary is unbelievable. It is almost day by day. William mentions passengers by name and covers any drastic or exciting occurrences on the voyage. He became very close to the Captain and also covers many of their conversations. He also covers deaths and births on the voyage. The diary ends when the ship drops anchor in Sydney Harbour at the Sow and Pigs, where there is a reef and a marker just inside the harbour off from South Head. The ship could not sail into the harbour until it was inspected by the Health authorities. As the Kerridges were to be on the other ship, their names do not appears on the Marchioness's passenger List, which I found when researching the family a problem. However, lucky that my husband's uncle (a Kerridge) had the original diary in his possession. I have a copy. The original is now in the Mitchell Library. I have also been contacted by the direct descendant of the Captain and he now has a copy of the diary, which helped him to write his book one his ancestor. Also, a descendant of a female passenger contacted me, as her great great grandmother gave birth, I think she had twins on the voyage and this event was also recorded by William in his diary. I can clarify all this information more tomorrow and send it to you.

    2. Good Morning Pam, Here is some information I promised regarding the Marchioness of Londonderry. I am now reading through the Diary to see if the family which you are researching are mentioned. Arrival of the Marchioness 10th December 1854. Extract from the diary of William Kerridge. “…We came into the harbour just about a 14/4 to elven o’clock. The morning is very fine and lovely, the sea as calm as a lake and on our right and left side lay the land of our adoption, our first impression of the country is very pleasing and this side of the picture is very different to the starting side. We see surround with land green in places and at the water’s edge are huge blocks of sandstone tumbled about as nature and time have left them. Very warm now and people sport their large rimmed straw hats, which are well adapted for protection of the eyes from the sun. We see small boats plying about. The reporter from the Sydney Empire came on board and the English news is received from Melbourne down to October per cargo steamship 61 days by which we learn the fall of Sebastopol and Burnosund. The English and French loss was 3 thousand, Russians 10 thousand destroyed by blowing up of a fort and 22 thousand taken prisoners. Also, rebellion with the gold diggers at Ballarat was of a very serious nature, between some of the military killed civilians. Cause of insurrection with the licence fee. Captain received papers. We have 4 papers put on board, which give us news and make us feel at home in the world once more. Thank God in my heart that we have arrived safe this far. This morning ship from Liverpool the St Helena arrived a few hours before us, 105 days from Liverpool. We have a Mrs Williams with us and her sister came out by the St. Helena, which is also in quarantine. We are sufficiently near from them to exchange signals to recognise each other. Two boats came down in the afternoon to inquire if the friends are well and one came in the evening with the husband and daughter of the poor lady that died on the passage and this was a painful case to all to give them, such bad news. Mrs Myall is the wife of the Harbour Master and he came down to see his wife and two children, after an absence of 3 years. Altogether this is a very eventful day or our lives. Clear blue skies all day and starlight at night and with this I close my days report on the arrival to Port Jackson. The doctor felt there was enough evidence to support the ship to be redirected to the Quarantine Station, which was at the base of the North Headland. Great disappointment was felt by all the passengers, as they felt there was no cause for the ship and the passengers to be quarantined, as everyone on board were in a good state of health. There was not one case of sickness on board the ship, however the order to quarantine was given, so that all the passengers clothes could be washed and all bedding burnt on the beach, if it was deemed necessary. Signed: William Kerridge. This was the last entry in William;s diary. Regards, Janice Doughty, Belrose, Sydney, Aust.
