Claramont

Departed Hong Kong 1 January 1861. Arrived Georgetown 13 April 1861.

News Item

This morning we had two arrivals of Immigrants. The Ship Red Riding Hood from Canton brought 259 men, 49 women, 3 boys and 3 infants, making a total of 314. The Ship Claramont brought from Hong Kong 188 men, 86 women, 7 boys and 1 girl, being a total of 282; so that by these two vessels we have an increase of nearly 600 people to our labouring population. The Claramont, although she was unlucky enough to have a long passage of 100 days, while the Red Riding Hood had only 79 - or a month shorter - was fortunate in this respect that she lost but one passenger while the other vessel lost four. How these deaths occurred is not stated but four out of 318 is not a high per centage of mortality [Royal Gazette, 13 Apr 1861]

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.
