  (Patman), AUSTRALIAN HISTORY - PATMAN IMMIGRATION The Duke of Richmond, bringing out the Patman's as free emigrants, sailed from London on the 5th October 1852 and then from Liverpool on the 10th October 1852 under the command of 34 year old Captain John Thomas Barclay, the holder of a Second Class Masters Certificate. She was a 470-ton Barque built in 1842 at Dysart on the Firth of Forth and owned by R. Leslie of Dundee. The vessel, which was carrying 227 immigrants, was detained for four weeks in the Channel from adverse winds, finally continuing her voyage on the 5th November. The setback that hampered the Patman's on departure was not as serious as that which hindered the Edwards (of our maternal line) on the Rockingham. She grounded, lost her sails and after two weeks refitting finally sailed for Western Australia, on her arrival she ran aground and was abandoned. A more detailed description of the incident is listed in 'notes' under William Edwards (b1792). William Edwards is an ancestor of all the descendants of Alexander Affleck Patman and is the earliest settler pioneer of Alexander's line, recorded as landing 14th May 1830 in Cockburn Sound, Western Australia. On the 7th December the Duke of Richmond called into St. Iago for water (probably at the Cape Verde Islands), leaving on the 10th December to proceed to Portland, Victoria, where she arrived on the 4th March 1853, the voyage taking 135 days to complete. On board an emigrant ship, nearing the end of their journey as depicted by M.W.Ridley in 'Land Ho' In addition to the immigrants she carried considerable cargo for Portland, Vic. consisting of: 1 case Silver Plate 29 tierces beef (tierce is a cask containing 42 gallons/ 200 litres or 336 lbs/150 kilograms) 23 barrels pork 400 boxes of soap 1 case & 4 casks of basket dregs (I don't know!) 51 half-barrels of flour 7 trunks 35 casks of rum 25 casks of brandy 80 casks of wine 150 cases & 1 box geneva (spirit distilled from grain, also known as 'Hollands Gin') 10 hogsheads (large cask 52.5 gallons/240 litres) & 10 casks of beer The Surgeon/Superintendent on board was Dr Webber who reported the deaths of 27 passengers as well as six births. Within hours of anchoring in Portland Bay, six members of the crew made their escape in the ship's boat, but they were recovered the next day by the Mounted Police. By the 7th March Mr John Findlay, the Assistant Immigration Agent had concluded his inspection of the vessel. The single women were brought into the depot and were open to engagement at eleven o'clock the next day. The single men and married couples were open for engagement at ten o'clock the same day. A notice was posted indicating the following; "No person will be admitted to the single female's depot to hire servants without an order, which can be obtained at the Immigration Office during business hours". Two-thirds of the immigrants were hired on the first day. The Duke of Richmond sailed from Portland on the 11th June 1853 bound for London with a cargo of wool.
