"Beejapore" 1853
Article*12 January 1853 "The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser", NSW;
The Beejapore has made the passage from Liverpool in 85 days – the shortest run on record – bringing 911 immigrants. Unfortunately 56 deaths have occurred from measles and fever, and one death took place only three days ago, there are between 30 and 40 cases of sickness now on board. – Herald, Jan. 7. – The Beejapore, Captain McLay whose arrival we reported yesterday, embarked 967 Government emigrants at Liverpool, of whom 342 were children. Of the adults, about one half are from the Isle of Skye, and about 200 are Paisley weavers. Fifty-six deaths occurred on the passage, of which 55 were children, principally from scarlet fever and measles, the other death was that of an adult from apoplexy. Eighty was the number of cases of measles which occurred on board, and 20 of scarlet fever. At the present time there are only 13 patients under the doctor’s hands, all children suffering from measles, but most of these are in an improving state. The fever first emanated from the depot at Plymouth, in which, unfortunately, the emigrants resided previous to their embarkation. It is supposed that the ship will be released from quarantine about the end of next week – Herald, Jan. 8.;Principal=James Beedall, Witness=George Allen Sheens, Witness=Betsey Sheens, Witness=Charles John Sheens, Witness=Henry Sheens13
