The sailing ship Lady Jocelyn at Port Chalmers.

The sailing ship Lady Jocelyn at Port Chalmers.

The sailing ship 'Lady Jocelyn' while loading at Port Chalmers. Photograph taken by David Alexander De Maus in 1888.

The `Lady Jocelyn' weighed 2138 tonnes, and was built in 1852 by Mare of London, originally for the East India trade. She was later bought by the Shaw, Savill Company and made several voyages to Auckland, Wellington, and Lyttelton, and two voyages to Port Chalmers, arriving 6 November 1873, and 15 April 1888. The photograph can be dated to the later voyage from the funnel of the refrigeration plant with which she was fitted in the 1880s.

Up to the year 1878 she was the biggest immigrant ship trading to New Zealand. She was also the first immigrant ship to arrive in Tauranga.
