Joy Clist, d. 1935


Voyage of the Adamant, 1874

by Edwin White
Rough transcript of a journal written during the Adamant's voyage from Plymouth to Nelson, New Zealand, May 1874 (awaiting OCR transcription). My great-grandfather James George Scarlett was a boy of 12 on this ship, emigrating with his siblings and parents Daniel and Harriet Scarlett. Sadly, one of their daughters aged 5 died on the voyage, and this is mentioned in the journal. (Notes by Roger Clist, September 2011.)
