Passengers Arriving In Western Australia - SOPHIA 27 Jul 1850

[ Voyage Details | Passenger List ]


The 537 ton teak and yellow metal SOPHIA was built in Calcutta INDIA in 1819. On this voyage she is said to have sailed from London, Portsmouth and finally, on April 27, 1850, from Plymouth. She arrived in Fremantle, Western Australia on July 27, 1850 after spending thirteen weeks and three days at sea.

She had a crew of 33 and her captain was John Claborn. There were 250 passengers on board and on arrival, her surgeon, Thomas Parr, was tried (and subsequently acquitted) on charges of malpractice and neglect.

One of the aims of this project was to assemble a comprehensive passenger LIST for the voyage and that has been presented further down the page in both a tabular and an expanded family biography format.

Lyn Todd has been the driving force behind this project and has uncovered much more information on many of the SOPHIA's passengers and the family historians researching them. Cyber-tourists are encouraged to e-mail Lyn and the other researchers mentioned in the various family biographies.

As the next section will show, a great deal of information has been uncovered about the ship, her crew and passengers, the voyage, the reasons behind the voyage and the effects it had on thepassengers and the Swan River Colony in general.



"SOPHIA" [27 July, 1850] The Voyage Explained

Assisted Emigration Scheme

The arrival of the SOPHIA in Fremantle on July 27, 1850, is closely linked with the commencement of the convict era in Western Australia. It should also be realised that no female convicts were to be transported to Western Australia. Lengthy negotiations with the home Government regarding the benefits and concerns of convict transportation had ended with an agreement requiring an equal number of free immigrants to receive passage and settlement costs at the Imperial Government's expense. The 250 assisted immigrants on the 'Sophia' were the first to arrive under this new scheme.

The Ship

The Lloyds Register for 1850 lists the SOPHIA as a 537 ton teak and yellow metal ship that had been built in Calcutta in 1819. A marine survey was carried out in March 1850 in preparation for the Australian voyage.

The Crew

Fremantle boarding records show a crew of 33 arrived on the SOPHIA with Captain John Claborn, master, who received 25 wages for the journey.

William Reid was paid 12 as 1st mate, as was Meredith Jacobs the 3rd mate.

Thomas Parr, Surgeon Superintendent, was employed for the journey at the rate of 10 shillings per head for each immigrant landing in the colony alive. His gratuity is listed as 125 in total. To ensure he performed his task to the satisfaction of the Colonial authorities, half of his fee was to be paid only after the Colonial Surgeon's inspection of the passenger's health.

Following complaints by several passengers regarding Parr's behaviour during the voyage, an extensive 4-day inquiry was held.

Mrs. Agnes Barclay had been appointed Matron in charge of single female immigrants for the duration of the voyage, for which she was to receive 5.

Passenger Stipends

Stipends were paid to the following passengers to fulfil various duties on board -
  • George Pope, schoolmaster, 5
  • Michael Humphrey, ---- , 3
  • Stephen Donnelly, hospital assistant, 3
  • John Johnson, constable, 2
  • George W. Penn, constable, 2
  • Wilm. Liles, constable, 2
  • Cath Murren, hospital assistant, 2

The Voyage

On April 27, 1850 the SOPHIA departed from Plymouth in southern England for Fremantle on the south-west coast of Australia, carrying 250 passengers.
The weather was hot and calm for most of the three-month and 3 day voyage via the Cape of Good Hope. On deck a large sail was filled with water to provide cool bathing and entertainment for
the younger passengers.
Rations were supplied according to age. Children between five and fourteen years received half the adult share, but those under five years of age were given no allocation. As a result, a shortage of
food often occurred amongst those families with several growing children with a capacity to eat adult quantities.

For many passengers, the provision of oranges proved to be a novelty.
Since no fresh water was taken on board after the SOPHIA set sail from England, the immigrants felt the available supplies were scarce and of poor quality, while Colonial officials considered the
supply to be adequate.
The water or lack of fresh provisions, may have been responsible for the bowel complaints during the voyage. Treatment with Opium mixture was used successfully by Surgeon Parr.
The hospital cabin kept an extensive range of medicinals, but only a very limited quantity of many of the essential drugs. Women after confinement received an extra daily ration of a pot of porter.
When the weather permitted, schooling was carefully attended. Of the 30 children receiving tuition, most could not write when they came on board. Mr. Pope considered they learnt to "write a
tolerable hand, and understand a little of arithmetic", although Thomas Buckingham Jr. was to later write in his diary that he thought they had not learnt much.

Arrival in Fremantle
Colonial sentiment was published in the 'Perth Gazette' to welcome the immigrants.
"To the newly arrived, ... You come to a country wherein by sobriety and industry you may, if you please, in a few years secure that which the labour of a life in the mother country would not
procure you - a comfortable independence and home for your old age."
Since the names of passengers from the Holborn Union Poorhouse and Cork Foundling Home are missing from the Nominal List of Emigrants, it seems likely that the decision to allow those
migrants to travel on the SOPHIA may have been made after the completion of sailing orders.
The Certificate of Final Departure (List A) was considered by the Colonial Office to correspond with the names and numbers of individuals who actually arrived. Surgeon Parr was unable to
explain to Colonial Immigration Agent F.D. Wittenoom the errors in his Nominal List of Emigrants (List B), which omitted the foundlings and was incorrect in other places also.
Thomas Rose, Swan River Surveyor Superintendent, prepared a detailed report on the voyage. He noted that Susan Johnson, Sophia Swords, Eliza Waters, Ann Cousins and Sarah Allen, all of
whom came from the Holborn Union; as well as Sarah Young and Keziah Bennett were to be considered exceptions to the general good behaviour of the passengers on board. During the voyage
Keziah Bennett had gone up on deck after being ordered below, and so had been punished for breaking the regulations by having some of her hair cut off. Passengers breaching regulations were
occasionally confined to a cabin.
On 30th August the newspapers printed the following charges made by 6 of the passengers against Surgeon Parr.
l
That he unjustifiably cut off the hair of passenger Bennett.
l
Neglected the sick, turned women out of hospital too soon after confinement in order to use it for improper purposes.
l
Took improper and disgusting liberties with passenger Chevassant in the presence of several females on deck.
l
Allowed constables to rob emigrants, then sell and barter away the stores.
However, it was made clear that Mr. Clabon and chief officer Reid, offered uniform kindness and attention to the passengers' comfort, as far as was within their power.

Suprisingly a letter to the Board of Enquiry dated August 31 from John Morgan, Catherine Murrin who married Morgan later that year and Isaac White declared they had "never signed or
authorised any person to sign any document against Mr. Parr." suggesting the grievance was chiefly held by Craig & Randell.
The inquiry was conducted by T.N. Yule, acting Colonial Secretary, J. Gibson RN, late Surgeon Superintendent of the convict ship 'Scindian', and F.D.Wittenoom, Colonial Immigration Agent.
Many of the passengers were extensively questioned.
William Ward stated to investigator Thomas Rose that on two occasions Parr had removed women immediately after confinement from the hospital cabin in order to take in his fancy woman
named Fanny Chevasset.
Catherine Murrin noted in her evidence that passenger Chevasset had been a patient in the hospital cabin for approximately five of the thirteen weeks and that the ailment had appeared to be piles
requiring regular embrocation by Surgeon Parr.
While many pages of transcriptions from over 20 passengers' interviews exist, noting drunkenness, improper and callous behaviour exhibited by Parr, this official evidence was not released with
the verdict as it was considered too damaging to Surgeon Parr's reputation.
The Editor of the Inquirer, on September 4, clearly felt a correct verdict was proclaimed when Parr was heartily cleared of impropriety, stating:
"We recollect that among the numerous individuals placed under the temporary charge of such Superintendent, there are most probably several discontented, turbulent and wicked spirits and
therefore the office of such individual must of necessity, be one requiring a considerable exercise of judgement and temper, and even with the due display of these qualifications, it is not
suprising to find that he is still unable to please all."
"Taking into consideration the character of the individuals ... who examined the charges ... and their unanimous opinion ... three charges were disproved by evidence of the surgeon, and the
remaining charge could not be proved by witnesses ... Mr. Parr has come off most and deservedly so triumphant. We unhesitatingly give it as our opinion that the charges brought against Mr.
Parr are frivolous, vexatious and malicious; and that the healthy state of the emigrants during the voyage and on arrival, together with no death having occurred, reflects on him, much credit."
Merchant seamen were governed by strict regulations to prevent their abandoning their vessel during voyages. On August 16, Captain Clabon applied to the Colonial Office on behalf of Seaman
John McClue, for permission to be discharged in Perth. McClue was reclassified as a passenger who had paid his passage by working on the ship.
This act may have inspired desertion from the SOPHIA, for the next day, authorities were notified of the desertion of 9 sailors. Three were later detained at Vasse by the Bunbury constable and
returned to Perth on the BLACK SWAN early in September, upon which a further two sailors deserted.
Warrants for the arrest of 6 articled seamen were issued:
l
Benjamin Baxter, 5'6", fair complexion, black hair, gray eyes.
l
[Meredith ] James Jacobs, [3rd mate, ], 19yr, fair complexion, brown hair, blue eyes.
l
Alexander Holland [?], 5'6 ", fresh complexion, brown hair, hazel eyes.
l
William Portbury, 5'4", dark complexion, black hair, dark eyes.
l
William Neave(s), 5' 3 ", fair complexion, brown hair.
l
William Inkiley [?], approx 28yr, an American with no ticket of description.
It is unknown what became of these men.
[ CSO Acc 36/204/94-96 PRO Alexander Library, Perth WA ]; [ Perth Gazette August 1850 ]
Captain Clabon advertised in the Inquirer newspaper on September 18 to hire four able seamen.
A Charles Cl ...e, sentenced to 40 days prison in the Fremantle goal, was granted remission of the remaining 9 days of his sentence on the condition that he ship out as a crewman on the SOPHIA.

Convicts and Emigrants
A parallel can be drawn between the 'respectability' of both the free immigrants and convicts in the early years of the scheme, when compared with later arrivals. Many of the convicts from the
SCINDIAN received their ticket-of-leave upon landing in the colony, often due to a combination of good behaviour and sentences for non-violent crime. Many had also requested transportation to
the colony.
It seems fitting that a passenger from the first assisted immigration, Honora Mulcreary, married convict #1, Samuel Scattergood, from the first convict ship.
The passengers of the SOPHIA were generally considered respectable people, although several of the single girls from the Cork Foundling Home and Holborn Poorhouse, housed at Customs
House at Fremantle, were accused of misbehaviour, reckless conduct, and were considered very different from the other immigrants in general character and appearance.
Indicating concern Acting Colonial Secretary T.N. Yule wrote to Immigration Agent F.D. Wittenoom on 15th August:
"It is with much more than mere official regret that I report ... the abandoned conduct of several of the single females lately landed from the SOPHIA ... eight or ten frequently found in the
public houses and streets, drunk, in company with sailors and other dissolute characters. I propose to remove the names [from] the Rations List of the ill-conducted girls and deny their
admittance to the depot."
Yule concluded that he was aware that this solution may indeed create further problems, and suggested moving the girls to Perth and Guildford immediately, "away from the contaminating
associates of a seaport".

Labour in the Colony of Western Australia
The availability of cheap leasehold farmland held great appeal to new arrivals in the colony and their desire to move upward from the servant class created a severe labour shortage which had
inflated wages accordingly.
Wages in England in 1850 were 14 pence per day or seven shillings per week. The eastern Australian colonies paid shearers 13 shillings per hundred sheep. Western Australian graziers were forced
pay 25 shillings per hundred and were eagerly awaiting cheaper convict labour.
Newspaper advertisements for food in the Swan River colony in July 1850 reflect the high cost of food with fine flour costing 2d per pound, eggs 1s 6d per dozen, mutton 3d per pound and pork
8d per pound.
The Inquirer expressed local landowners' sentiments in July 1850:
"Steady men who wish to make their way would take by far the wise course, did they accept the first situation open to them, and make wages a secondary consideration. A good labourer or
mechanic will always obtain a fair price, but he must be tried and known before he can expect to find steady employment."
The same issue noted that the government proposed to fix wages for the labourers disembarking from the SOPHIA at 12 per annum and 8 for female servants. If the wage were to be refused,
then the immigrant would be considered as having no further claim on the government for support.
This issue was clarified further on August 7, when the SOPHIA passengers were notified that upon the refusal to receive any wages whatever, they would cease to derive any assistance from the
government. This regulation was in fact enforced during the previous week, when a bricklayer (probably William Ward) refused the offer of 5 shillings per day and six months work. His name was
erased from the list of recipients of government rations.
Unengaged immigrants were employed by the Comptroller General of Convicts.
The last passengers to gain employment were the teenage orphans. The authorities posted newspaper advertisements on their behalf, offering an indenture to not exceed 3 years with wages of 30
shillings in the first year, 2 the second, and 3 for the third year.
The greatest industrial development of the late 1840's occurred near Geraldton and the Champion Bay district, much of which was a result of the discovery of lead and copper at the Geraldine Mine
in 1848. This led to the agricultural expansion of the area and many of the passengers settled in those areas of greatest growth.

Consequences of the Arrival of the "SOPHIA"
Social Class
Settlers travelling to Swan River Colony in 1850 were required to pay fares at a rate up to twice that required from those contemplating passage to America or Canada. All of the assisted emigrants
sailing on the SOPHIA contributed towards their fare, with many paying up to half.
The arrival of assisted immigrants created a new social class in the Swan River Colony, one that was considered above the convicts, but never rising to the equal of the free settlers.
Immigration Depots
The first convicts arrived unheralded on the SCINDIAN in June 1850, with 75 prisoners and about 125 officials, Enrolled Pensioner guards, and their families. The SOPHIA carried about 250
passengers, thus markedly increasing the population of a colony of about 5,000.
At that time Fremantle had no wharf, thus immigrants could not remain on board for interviews with prospective employers, even though the ships' charters permitted full board for a fortnight after
clearance.
The acute accommodation shortage led to the leasing of several buildings in Perth and Fremantle. Some of the immigrants were placed at the disused steam driven flourmill below Mt. Eliza (on the
site where the Swan Brewery was later built). The mill was a three-storey building with steep narrow ladders, not designed for habitation. The Inquirer newspaper of September 11, 1850 reported
an accident to one of the female immigrants "who fell from the upper story of ... the depot, and alighted on the platform beneath. She remained for some time insensible. The Colonial Surgeon was
quickly in attendance ... we regret she is still in a precarious state."
While residing at the Immigration Depot, adult daily ration allowances were:
1 lb bread
1 lb meat
lb potatoes
2 oz sugar
oz tea
Country Depots
Many colonists from the York, Northam and Geraldton areas mistakenly believed that the government would assist the immigrants of the SOPHIA to travel to the country areas to seek selection
for employment. They were displeased when word was received that not only would they need to leave their farms and travel to the city to find them, but that the most able-bodied and experienced
had already been hired.
It was not until 1853, as a result of many pleas to the government, that a depot was opened in Toodyay.

17/07/2011 http://members.iinet.net.au/~perthdps/shipping/sophia.htm
About 1854, the Secretary of State in London ordered the closure of the country immigration depots and noted that the original agreement to subsidise the costs for caring for unemployed
immigrants had applied only to those who had sailed on the SOPHIA in 1850. These costs had risen from an annual few hundred pounds to over 2,500. Colonial Governor Fitzgerald had
mistakenly assumed that the payments to the colony were to also apply to later arrivals. In future, all such costs were to be defrayed from the Colonial Treasury.

Thomas CLUNE, b. 1796 (U.K.), d. 1866 (W.A.); m. (IRELAND), Bridget CLUNE (nee MacMAHON), b. 1802 (U.K.), d. 1866 (W.A.).
W.L. Brockman of Guildford offered Thomas employment, and early in September, he travelled by boat to the township, arriving in wet weather at 11pm with his wife and two children. He viewed his allotted cottage
with the foreman, as Mr. Brockman was absent from the property. Later that night Thomas and his family called upon Bishop Serra for accommodation, claiming they had received no welcome. The following day
they were given provisions and 2 by Bishop Serra and returned to Perth. Mr. Brockman later vehemently denied this claim.
With son-in-law Martin BUTLER, Thomas paid 100 for pastoral rights in the Victoria Plains district. Thomas applied in 1856 to have some relatives sent from Ireland. The Clune family became influential
pastoralists.
