NAFFERTON - The following is a brief account of families who emigrated to the colony of Canterbury, New Zealand, on the 1st of the month, from this village:

-They were 19 in number, namely Robert HOLLAND, his wife and 3 children; Botton SHIPLEY, his wife and 3 of his children; Thomas BUTTERICK, his wife and his brother Henry (lately returned from America), Margaret BUTTERICK, Jane ROBSON and William STOREY; all under 35 years of age.

They were much respected by all who knew them, and their safe arrival across the ocean is anxiously hoped for.

They took leave of their native village at one o clock on Saturday morning, June 27th in a waggon, by which they were conveyed to Hull; the waggon and horses were kindly lent for the occasion by some of the principal farmers; Mr R------- took an active part in assisting to load their luggage, and seemed to take a great interest in their welfare. The sight was a very affecting one and will long be remembered in Nafferton; a large crowd followed them past the railway station as if anxious to go with them; it was estimated that upwards of 250 people went to pay their last tribute of respect; all wishing them to land safe at Port Lyttleton in Canterbury, New Zealand. On their arrival at London they embarked on board the Lancashire Witch, East India Docks.

The following are the details:

Artist: Thomas Dutton
Title: The Clipper Ship Lancashire Witch
Image size in millimetres: 400 x 605
Limited Edition of 1000. The Lancashire Witch was one of the many vessels built at Quebec. She was a full-rigged ship of 1574 tons, and was eleven years off the stocks when she came to new Zealand. She was owned by Firnie and Co., of Liverpool, and in 1863 was chartered by the Shaw Savill Co. The Lancashire Witch made her first passage to Lyttelton in 1863, and the 420 immigrants who embarked at London experienced a very trying and anxious time. Shortly after her departure scarlet fever broke out, and before reaching Lyttelton three adults and 23 children died and were buried at sea.Fine Art Print. New Zealand Artist

Many thanks Ian, you boys are wonderful at gathering the information.
On a ships list that I have here it says that the Holland family have an infant named Sarah Ann are you able to see if she was Robert and Ann's or maybe their Granddaughter. Henry was 3 and then is has Sarah Ann infant.
I see George Holland and Jane also have a Granddaughter living with them
Are there many Holland families still living in Driffield?
Thank you so much again
Regards Di
