Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1829

The following information on arrivals, due to the condition of the papers, has been taken from various sources including the Montreal Gazette MG, Montreal Herald MH, and the Canadian Courant & Montreal Advertiser CC.
note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible. This can lead to errors in the interpretation of the entry or missed entries. ) Be aware that there may be two or more ships of the same name, from the same, or different ports, during the same year. A few ships also made two trips in 1829.

note: There seems to be under-reporting by the Montreal Gazette, of the numbers' of settlers and names of cabin passengers on vessels arriving at Quebec for the year 1829, so do not conclude that any such vessel did not carry passengers.

The Official Gazette notices in the following, a deception, too often practised by the Captains of vessels, on Emigrants, for which they seldom meet with the punishment such conduct deserves :—
" The impositions of ships' masters on ignorant passengers cannot always be prevented, but it is very proper such conduct should be noticed with reprobation. Emigrants are not always proficient in geography, and if they believe the representation of the shipmaster, they are to be more pitied than blamed. Several women belonging to the 34th Regiment, under orders for Halifax have been brought to Quebec, having been told on engaging their passage that " It was all the same, " and that they could easily get to the place of destination from this port. This deception is disgraceful to the person who had recourse to it. We do not mean to say that these women shipped for Halifax and were landed here, but they were persuaded to embark for Quebec as a direct road to Halifax ; being themselves entirely ignorant on the subject, and now actually in distress in consequence, without money or friends. " ..... they wrecked on the schooner Ann and Margaret

Among the steerage passengers by the ship Favourite, from Greenock, we understand, there are several respectable farmers with their families from the West of Scotland. We learn with satisfaction that it is their intention to proceed to the Settlements on the Chateauguay River — one of the finest portions of the Lower Province, and which we consider as a most desirable place of settlement in many respects for Emigrants, offering to them advantages not to be found in Upper Canada ; or in the United States.

The Thomas Wallace, Douglas, arrived in the River Thames, spoke the Jane of Belfast, bound to Quebec in lat. 46 long. 56. In distress — eight of her crew and thirteen settlers having taken away anchors, cables and boats, and landed at St. Peter's Island, and only 4 seamen left to navigate the vessel, excepting the passengers — supplied her with stream anchor and hawser.

The Swan River Settlement [Western Australia . . . off-site link .. off-site link], by Mr. Peel, which has been so much canvassed, and so often denied, is at last on the eve of taking place. The ship Gilmore, which had been purchased for conveying the settler and his people, sailed from Gravesend on Monday, for Plymouth, where it will take Mr. Peel on board. The vessel carries a considerable number of animals, horses, cows, sheep, &c., for the farms ; and the settlers on board had generally their families with them. A seven months' passage with this species of cargo must be a formidable commencement of exile. —Court Journal

brigantine CLIO
The brig Clio, and American vessel, under the command of Captain Pinkham, arrived at Quebec from Boston on Thursday morning. The Clio, which is described as a fine brigantine of about 140 tons, is the vessel which Admiral Sir Isaac Coffin, fitted out at his own expense for the purpose of having a number of young men, belonging to Nantucket, taught naval tactics. The Admiral, it will be remembered, is a native of Massachusetts, and in this and many other instances has shown that he at heart the welfare of his relatives in that State. We copy from the Massachusetts Journal, the following paragraph relative to the Clio and her interesting crew.—
" The brig Clio which sailed from Boston for Quebec on Wednesday last, was purchased, and is owned by Sir Isaac Coffin ; and has on board twenty-one boys, all of the blood of " old Tristram Coffin ; " who emigrated from Devonshire, England, in 1643, and settled in Nantucket in 1660, having in company with Peter Folger, Dr. Franklin's grandfather, first induced the natives to sell the island. These lads are embarked under the care and instruction of Captain Pinkham, a descendant of the same progenitor, for the purpose of acquiring complete knowledge and skill in the science and duties of navigation and seamanship ; and to become qualified for marine officers, either for merchant or national vessels. Captain Pinkham has been spoken to of us as a very accomplished and careful officer, every way suited to his interesting charge. The Clio out a small freight with a view to meet the expenses of the voyage. Sir Isaac met the boys accidently in the street a day or two before they sailed, and his eyes overflowed with benevolent delight, as he received their simultaneous salutation. "

The last division of the 68th Regiment, will leave this place this evening for Quebec, previous to its embarkation in the transports, for Ireland. We cannot allow this Regiment to leave our garrison without yielding it our feeble note of praise for its steady and correct demeanor while with us, so characteristic of the good name it has obtained during a thirteen years sojourn in the Canadas. A mutual good feeling between the country and the Regiment has arisen, which we hope must yet continue to exist, however distant and separated they may be from us.

The Swan River Settlement.—
The beautiful ship Gilmore sailed on Monday evening for the Swan River. She has upwards of 200 passenger on board, the whole of whom are highly respectable and many of them are in opulent circumstances. When Mr. Peel came alongside (accompanied by Mr. Soutau,) just before the ship got under weigh, the passengers and crew gave him three cheers. The property on board the Gilmore alone amounts to more than £60,000. We understand also, that the Minstrel will call at this port in about a fortnight, to take out other settlers on account of Mr. Peel. We are informed that Government have increased Mr. Peel's grant of land from 850,000 to 1,000,000 acres.— Plymouth Journal

  19th December 1829
" The brig Prince Kutusoff, of Whitby, bound from Quebec to Liverpool, with timber and staves, was driven ashore and wrecked on the long strand, at Castle Freke, County Cork, early on the morning of Sunday, December 13th. She was seen in bay from the shore the whole of Saturday, contending with the storm, but the wind was adverse and the sea so high, that she appeared to be with difficulty prevented from driving on the rocks. Towards the evening she was brought to anchor in the bay, and the wind becoming for a while somewhat moderate, the Waterguard boat, from Mill Cove, under Mr. Dawson, Chief Officer, by the greatest and most laudable exertion, got out to her, and took her crew on board their boat, and at imminent risk, in pitchy darkness and a rank storm, brought them safely to shore at Sheep's Cove. The gale continuing to increase, the vessel soon began to drift, and before day, was driven ashore, where she now lies, a complete wreck. It is expected that the cargo, with the rigging, will be all saved ; the hull must go to pieces. " — Cork Constitution

from the Mercury.—
Tomorrow, the 68th, or Durham Regiment of Light Infantry, embark for England. This Corps, which greatly distinguished itself in the campaigns on the Peninsula, has been now upwards of eleven years in Canada, and during this time has been stationed at every Military post in the two Provinces, at all of which they have maintained the most cordial intercourse with the inhabitants, and we know of no instance where their departures, on a change of quarters, has not been a subject of regret. They are now returning to their native land, and will carry with them the best wishes of the inhabitants of both Provinces, who will ever feel a lively interest in the future fortunes of the gallant Durhams.

We have much pleasure in being enabled to announce to our readers the arrival at Dublin of the ship John Porter, Captain Maxwell, from Quebec. Gore's Liverpool Advertiser of the 24th mentions that she arrived at Dublin on Wednesday the 16th, got into Mr. Scovell's dock about two o'clock, delivered cargo of 500 tons, took in ballast, and sailed on Saturday the 9th, about the same hour. There is every prospect now of her making the five trips which were contemplated, and we trust the next accounts from Quebec will announce her arrival at the port.

The Niagara Gleaner says :—
The steamer Niagara arrived here on the 14th instant, from Burlington, passing through the Canal ; landed near Hamilton 150 persons — men, women and children — settlers from Rosshire, Highlands of Scotland, all bound for the township of Zorrou, London District ; where, we understand, lands are located for them, that they may be settled in one neighbourhood.

Nov 04 brigantine Braganza Ashwood 47 days Cadiz   to W. Forester / general cargo

  The John Porter, Captain Maxwell, on her third voyage this season, anchored at Patrick's Hole, on Tuesday, 3rd instant, in fourty-four days from Dublin, and came up to town yesterday. She has now nearly a fortnight's time to load, and a certain prospect of making her three voyages. Mr. Hamilton, the owner, we understand, wins by wagers about £1,600, should she safely arrive home. To Mr. Hamilton's enterprizing spirit, the trade of the country is indebted for performing, what has certainly been never performed before, and giving example of a more profitable employment for our shipping. There can be no doubt that any quick vessel, receiving ordinary dispatch, that is lying ten days in port each voyage, would annually make three voyages, sailing hence even as late as the 10th or 15th of May. It is known that there is not more, but generally less expense in loading a vessel quickly than slowly ; the wharfage, sailors' wages and other port expenses are diminished. The vessel returning three freights a year is a great object under any circumstances of the trade, but during war, or other times, for the profitable employment of shipping, it becomes still more important. It is not without important consequences in another point of view, as enabling the Canada timber merchant better to compete with the Baltic trader, and opposing three instead of two voyages to Canada in the year to the three or four voyages from Great Britain to the Baltic in the same period. We trust that this practical example of three voyages in the year between Quebec and Great Britain, will stimulate many to undertake them regularly, and, we think, there can be no doubt as to their succeeding and profitting by it.— Neilson's Gazette

Two circumstances have occurred during the last week which may be considered as memorable in the annals of our navigation. On Tuesday last, the New Felix Souligny, Captain Painchaud, arrived from Liverpool, in tow of Hercules, and her crew have since been actively engaged in discharging and loading, as she has still to depart for a foreign port. [the 59th, and last vessel into the port of Montreal for the 1829 season]
The Meta, Captain Gaskill, has cleared out from this, for the Cape of Good Hope, there to await instructions to proceed further. She is the first vessel, we believe, which has sailed from Canada for any African port.

The port of Montreal, at this late season, presents an unusual scene of bustle and activity. A great number of Craft are now busy loading for the Lower Ports, and the greatest expedition is used in discharging and loading the steamboats and their barges as quick as they arrive. The New Felix Souligny, from Liverpool, the only square rigged vessel in port, which arrived on Tuesday last, is expected to be able to clear today and sail tomorrow. The weather during part of last week was cold and clear, and the Canal was much obstructed by the ice, which had accumulated during the night. ....

Melancholy Shipwreck.—
We have this day the painful task of recording one of the most distressing shipwrecks which has taken place on this coast for a number of years — the loss of the schooner Ann and Margaret, Captain McKenna, of this port, from Quebec, which vessel was driven ashore in the gale, about half-past eight o'clock on Saturday evening, a little to the north-ward of Herring Cove, where she shortly after went to pieces, and melancholy to relate, thirteen out of nineteen persons who were on board perished, viz :— Mr. Alexander Ross, merchant, and Mr. W. McKenzie, of this place, Mrs. Davis of Quebec, sister to Mr. M. Andrews, of this town, Mr. W. Knodle, mate, and a young man passenger, three women, wives of the 34th Regiment, four children, whose names we have not been able to obtain, and the cook, a coloured man. The survivors are Captain McKenna, two of the crew, and three of the women of the 34th Regiment who have saved nothing but what they had on. The bodies of Mrs. Davis and a child have been picked up and brought to town.— Halifax Journal
....the women's story
Port of Quebec November 26th & 29th - MG
addendum to the story just above . . .
Mrs. Davis was the widow of the late Joseph Davis, master blacksmith in the Department of the Royal Engineers and the three women, wives of Sergeants of the 34th Regiment. These poor creatures, it will be recollected, had taken their passage to this port [Quebec], under the impression that it was near to Halifax, and the conduct of the master of one of the vessels which brought them here was severely animadverted upon. [to remark or comment critically, usually with strong disapproval or censure] If they were really deceived into the belief that in coming to Quebec, that they were taking the readiest course to join thier husbands, their unhappy fate must weigh heavily upon the minds of those who cannot but be looked upon, as having placed them in the situation which lead to their untimely fate. ....the women's story

Welland Canal:—
Private letters from St. Catherines mention, that no public celebration of the opening of the Welland Canal [runs 42 km (27.0 miles) from Port Colborne, Ontario on Lake Erie to Port Weller, Ontario on Lake Ontario] took place on the 24th ultimo (24th Nov.), as had been announced. One of the letters we have seen, states, that it had been found necessary to let off the greater part of the water in the Canal, in consequence of a freshet, occasioned by the melting of the snow lately fallen, which had overflowed its banks and done some damage. It is stated that some vessels are still expected to pass through this Fall, but it seems probable that this intention will not be carried into effect, from the severe weather which has been lately experienced, and that no formal opening of this grand water communication between Lakes Ontario and Erie will take place before the Spring of the ensuing year.
Port of Quebec December 14th, 17th, 24th, 28th & 31st - MG
From the Niagara Herald we learn that two vessels have passed from Lake Ontario and Lake Erie through the Welland Canal:— the General Brock of York and the R.H. Boughton of Youngstown. The weather having moderated from its former severity enabled this to be performed, but the celebration by the Directors it is intended to postpone till next Spring. The Boughton has proceeded to Buffalo, from whence she was to return immediately to Youngstown.

Among the passengers by the ship Corinthian, sailed from New York on the 1st instant for London, we observe the names of the Hon. William Preble and family, of Maine, and Mr. Brunet, of Canada. Mr. Preble is the new American Minister to the Court of the Netherlands, to which he proceeds for the purpose of advocating the American claims, in relation to the North Eastern Boundary, before the King of the Netherlands, the Umpire appointed by Great Britain and the United States.
The packet ship Silas Richards, Captain Holdredge, sailed from New York for Liverpool on the 10th intant with the following passengers :— Messrs. C.O. Ermatinger ; James Scott ; Peter McIntosh ; T.B. Wragg ; William Smith ; Robert Morris, of Montreal. H.N. Palotn of Quebec. Thomas Arnold pf Kingston, and Messrs. Douglas, Pealing, Anderson, E. Hart and Jones, of Canada, and Mr. Cripps of New York. She was detained till that day by her owners, and with the consent of the passengers, for the purpose of carrying to England, a copy of the President's Message.

The Swan River Settlement.—
The Warrior, a fine vessel of 600 tons, bound to the new settlement on Swan River, Australia, sailed for her destination on Friday, from Portsmouth. The Warrior carries out upwards of 250 passengers to the new colony, several of whom are gentlemen possessing independent fortunes, who have embarked considerable capital in the speculation ; and two of the principal emigrants, named Byrne and Molloy, paid £1,000 for the best accomodation the vessel could afford their families and suites. Fifty dogs of the choicest breeds, several pens of sheep, a considerable number of swine, two milch cows, and three valuable horses are taken out. Six pianos were also shipped on board, which belong to an equal number of the fair emigrants.

The Army:—
We are happy to learn that the Transports with the 68th Regiment on board had arrived safe at Cork. The English papers which we have received state that the Sylvia reached that port on the 16th and the Countess of Harcourt on the 17th. The Kains we presume, arrived on the succeeding day, as private letters from some of the Officers, received in town, mention that they disembarked after a passage of twenty-nine days, on the 19th (the day after their arrival) and marched to Fermoy.
