ship Sir John Lawrence, 689 tons, Captain J. Robertson, from London 22nd July, Plymouth 2nd August 1862, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 30th October 1862

The South Australian Advertiser, Friday 31 October 1862 p. 2

Thursday 30th October:— Sir John Lawrence, ship, 689 tons, J. Robertson, master, from London, July 22, via Plymouth, August 2. Elder, Stirling and Co. agents. Passengers— Dr. Henry Rickards, Surgeon Superintendent, in the cabin; and the following Government emigrants in the steerage:—

. . . . — 1st ship from England to S.A. with government passengers for 1862 ; —3— births and —2— deaths on the passage ; Henry Rickards, surgeon-superintendent.
In the Reports by the Emigration Officer, Dr. Duncan, there was often mention made in regard to Nominee's or General Emigrants ; the list below made a special effort to separate those into two lists, so, I have combined these but made notations alongside the family name, thus, General Emigrants = GE and Nominee = N. — Robert
Miscellaneous Shipping
The Sir John Lawrence arrived on Thursday morning, after a favorable passage of 88 days from Plymouth, from which port she sailed on the afternoon of the 2nd August. During the first week of two of the voyage contrary weather prevailed but after doubling Cape Finisterre the run to the Cape de Verd Islands was made in fine weather, and hopes of a quick passage were entertained, as the vessel was in first-rate trim, and if the run down trades had only proved satisfactory she would doubtless have been here in 78 days, but unfortanately the N.E. trade winds ware scant, and in consequence it was the 3rd September before the equinoctial line was crossed, and in the S.E. trades the vessel was set down on the Brazilian coast to such an extent that several tracks were made before getting to the southward of Bahia. On September 24 passed the Island of Tristan d'Acunha ; and on October l rounded the Cape of Good Hope. A capital run was made from the Cape to the Leuwin, but, as usual, on nearing the Australian land the wind drew from the eastward, and several days were lost.
Dr. Duncan boarded her on his visit of inspection, and therefore all those who have friends on board will suffer no detention in their landing, the vessel's draught of water having enabled her to proceed into harbor at once. The following vessels were spoken during the passage :— On September 10, in lat. 27º 12' S, long. 3lº 51' W., the French ship Panama, from Callao, bound to Havre ; on October 2, in lat. 40º 19' S., long. 23º 36' E., the British ship William Miles, from London, 69 days out, bound to New Zealand, having 327 passengers on board ; on October 24, lat. 39º 53' S., long. 119º 41' E, the Dutch barque General Michaels, from Amsterdam, bound to Melbourne.
