Princess Royal (1832)

The 402 ton barque Princess Royal which sailed from London 12 Apr 1832 with a load of 200 free female immigrants, arrived in Hobart 6 Sep 1832.
The ship arrived at Storm Bay 24 Aug but the Master mistook the mouth of the Derwent and entered Frederick Henry Bay. On realising this the ship was anchored but later a gale sprang up and she started to drag, then the cables parted. Ralph Dodge, settler, directed her off the entrance to Pittwater, but without any anchors left the Princess Royal soon grounded at Tiger Head. After being lightened by local craft she was refloated early in Sept, her passengers having been taken off by the paddle steamer Surprise, which was sent from Hobart on 24 Aug and arrived back with most of the female immigrants on 5 Sept.
