Return to SA Passenger Lists,1847-1886

barque David Malcolm, 538 tons, Captain Jacob W. Smith, from London 1846 & Plymouth 13th October 1846, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 23rd January 1847

South Australian News, London, Oct. 1846: The David Malcolm, after some slight detention at Plymouth, in consequence of some slight damage received in the Sound, during the stormy weather, sailed, on the 13th instant, with 167 Emigrants, which, on the authority of a gentleman who inspected them previously to departure are most carefully inspected.
The London Times
Oct 12, 1846:
Naval Intelligence
Plymouth, Oct. 9.
The weather continues very bolsterous, with the wind at S.W.
3 o'clock P.M.
The Sir David Malcolm, emigration ship, with emigrants on board, has just parted her starboard chain-cable in the Sound. She is now riding at her only remaining anchor in the northern part of the merchant anchorage ground. It is low water now, and, should the heavy gale blowing from S.S.W. continue during the rising of the tide, her position, without assistance, will be one of great danger.
October 10.
The storm from the southward continues with very little abatement. No damage has, however, occurred in this port.

Friday, Oct 16, 1846:
Naval Intelligence
Portsmouth, Thursday..
Plymouth, Oct. 14.
We had exceedingly fine weather yesterday, with a moderate breeze from north-west, in consequence of which the port was nearly cleared of the numerous ships which had sound a secure anchorage here during the late heavy gales.
The Buckinghamshire, Captain M'Gregor, from China, left on the 12th for London.

Her Majesty's frigate America, 50, Captain the Hon. J. Gordon, sailed yesterday for the Mediterranean, taking 100 boys for distribution among Admiral Parker's fleet.
