BUCKINGHAMSHIRE 1839 was a fine old East Indian ship built in 1816 at Bombay Dockyards, India by Jamsetjee Bomanjee as a fully rigged ship. She departed London on December 11th, 1838 under command of Captain William Moore, arrived Adelaide on March 21st, 1839. B 16528, The ship Buckinghamshire at Holdfast Bay - from a watercolour by Colonel William Light held in the Art Gallery of South Australia. Image courtesy of the State Library the South Australia Background information We understand the BUCKINGHAMSHIRE only made one visit to Adelaide, but brought the largest single contingent of passengers with her on that visit in 1839. This was probably the largest sailing ship to enter Port Adelaide in the days of sailing ships. She would have been a beautiful sight sailing up the Port River to the wharf. She arrived in Port Adelaide on March 22 1839 with 512 passengers on board. Of these, 443 were migrants being sent out by the Commissioners under the care of General Superintendent Nathanel Hailes for the colonisation of South Australia. There were around 42 cabin passengers, 15 in steerage and 443 bounty emigrants, including 180 children. The following passenger list was from the Register, March 30th 1839, page 6 Col D, and information supplied by the South Australian Archives. The list in the paper does not appear to be complete. SHORT, John, and wife Hannah nee WREN http://www.slsa.sa.gov.au/fh/passengerlists/1839Buckinghamshire.htm http://www.slsa.sa.gov.au/fh/passengerlists/1839Buckinghamshire-Diary.htm Extracts from the Diary of John Channing, one of the Steerage passengers sent out by the Commissioners to Adelaide on board the "BUCKINGHAMSHIRE". "January 3, 1839 at Sea", Mr Heals the general Superintendent of the Emigrants is a most excellent man and one who is determined that every fraction of the articles shall be fulfilled. I hear he is treated with great coldnefs by the Officers of the ship January 5 - Quarrels and other annoying circumstances which make one miserable on board January 7th - the Gunner discovered to be with the young women at night on pretence of putting out the light. January 22nd - disgraceful conduct of the Officers to the young women, they continue to get into their berths at night January 23rd - more disgraceful conduct of the Officers. January 29th - Emigrants feel the effects of the Salt provisions, they draw up a petition to the Doctor for the Medical comfort promised - which he refused, saying they wanted to get drunk indecent behaviour of the Officers and consequently of the low lived Sailors to the Women. Some of them very well but generally they are a bad set, being described by one of their own number as the rakings of Hell, Bedlam and Newgate. January 30th - the Doctor from obstinacy stops the Lime juice for the Emigrants to petition this Lime juice was served out about nine times, but it ought to have been oftener, at least twice a week Rum Cakes and other things given to the Young Women by the villianous mates which some refused and others accepted. March 13 - the Captain owing our Superintendant Mr Heals a grudge, wished to supervise but the Emigrants stood firm to him, hissing and hooting the Captain who soon found his mistake and was glad to make his escape into the Cabin March 22nd - arrived in Holdfast Bay - almost every one on board had quarrelled in the Cabin and intermediate as well as Steerage.

The rattle of the anchor chain signalled the end of a honeymoon cruise for two newlyweds on bard, John and Hannah Short. Stirred by the spirit of adventure, John 20, and his bride Hannah, just nineteen years old, took their vows just prior to embarking for Australia. They must surely have been among the youngest married pioneers to settle in the southern districts. On arrival, they took up Sections 2,3 (now Noarlunga Centre), and part of Section 4 in the Hundred of Noarlunga on what is now Beach Road, Morphett Vale. Here they built a home which they called 'Stoneham' from local limestone and Willunga slate. The workmanship, one the finest examples of the time, lasted down through the years and was, until recently demolished, the home of the Misses Amy and Elsie Perry, grandchildren of the original occupants. John a mason by trade, first built two rooms and a cellar. Later he added another five rooms and serveral outbuildings. During this time, John and Hannah raised a family of eight children. George the eldest, was born in 1841, followed by Sarah in 1843, Sophia in 1845, Edward in 1847, Selina in 1853, Amos in 1856, Alice in 1859 and finally, John Alfred in 1862. Their sections stood on high ground and like many landholders in the district, they laboured within sight of the sea and with uninterrupted view across the gentle hills to the ranges. Writing in 1971 Max Colwell says: Today homes are beginning to creep closer to "Stoneham" and within a few years it will be entirely surrounded, but at the moment it stands in a few acres with its beautiful slated floor, perfectly preserved timber beams, walls and brick fireplaces, retains an old world charm and would be an ideal preperty to retain as an historical reminder of the past. Sadly Mr. Colwell's suggestion was ignored and "Stoneham" is no more. John Short died on 25th July 1896, aged 77 years. Hannah died 13th November, 1905 aged 85. Both are buried in the Scots Church Cememtery, Morphett Vale. Marriage 1 Hannah WREN b: 29 APR 1821 in England * Married: NOV 1838 in Buxted Sussex, England Children 1.
