News Item

Governor Hincks asked Governor Keate of Trinidad whether he would make a commitment to take 750 immigrants. Trinidad responded positively and British Guiana undertook to accept the other 1,250 beginning in the 1864-65 season. By the time the season was in full swing, Sampson [the Emigration Agent in Canton] received a communication saying that the British Guiana requirement had been increased to 1,500, i.e. exclusive of women and children. The first ship was the Brechin Castle which sailed from Canton on 18 October 1864. [From Cane Reapers: Chinese Indentured Labourers in Guyana by Trev Sue-A-Quan.]

Note: Because of poor penmanship and deterioration of the historic documents, it was sometimes difficult to read the handwriting in the records and this has resulted in some duplication in the transcription of some passenger numbers as well as variations in spelling from what was originally inscribed.
