Timandra
Barque: 382 tons
Captain: J L Skinner
Surgeon Superintendent: George C Forbes
Sailed Plymouth November 2nd 1841 3:00pm - arrived New Plymouth February 24th 1842

Stoutest and best-found of all the vessels sent out to New Plymouth was the barque Timandra, 382 tons, Captain Skinner, which made the passage direct in 113 days. She left Plymouth on November 2, 1841, and arrived on February 23, 1842, bringing 212 passengers, the largest number sent out in any of the six vessels. Her cargo included two sets of moorings for the roadsted. One set was laid down about two miles from shore. It was intended to land the other set, but one of the anchors was lost when being sent ashore on a raft, and the other one of the pair was taken to Sydney, where it lay so long on Moore's wharf that the wharfage came to more than its value, and it was eventually sold by auction. This fine ship had a pleasant voyage out. On the way out a call was made at Capetown, where a fortnight was spent, including Christmas Day. In marked distinction to many of the emigrant ships of the 'fifties and the 'sixties, the Timandra was a happy craft, and everyone had a good word to say for her. Among the passengers was Mr W Devenish, who brought out with him a small flock of Southland down sheep, the first seen in New Zealand. The Timandra seems to have been in luck all the way through, for she landed her passengers and cargo without a hitch in perfect weather, during her ten days stay off New Plymouth. The Rev. Horation Gruber, son of Admiral Grouber, arrived by this ship and for a considerable time conducted religious services in raupo whares.
