Description

The Rosanna, Captain Herd, sailed from London in 1825 with 30 settlers sent by a commercial company to establish themselves in New Zealand, chiefly for the cultivation of flax and the collecting of timber.

They were accompanied by the store-ship Lambton. Eleven months were spent on the coast of New Zealand but the idea of settling was relinquished and they continued to Sydney. Herd’s activities are highlighted.

Agricultural superintendent Thomas Shepherd brought his wife and children with him. Links with Scotland and New South Wales are explored.
