It has not been possible to distinguish between Nelson and Wellington settlers. But the Examiner, December 1842, p.162, says that 6 chief cabin and 5 intermediate cabin passengers together with 13 adults and 17 children in the steerage, came to Nelson in her. The Examiner also lists Mr Ridgeway, Mr Mocatta and Mr Perry as cabin passengers. Ridgeway is a passenger from Wellington only. Not sure about Mocatta and Perry. The Examiner gives Mr Godfrey, Mr Bolten and Miss Secker as intermediate cabin passengers, but the NZ Company lists them in the steerage. 1 death 3 births on board.
