    Arrival of the Wyser Family in Adelaide, South Australia - 23 Jan 1877
    This passenger manifest, from the collection of State Records of South Australia, shows the arrival in Adeliade on 23 Jan 1877 of: Bruno Wyser (age 35), Elisa (age 32), Ida (9), Marie [?] (4), Emilie (3), Adolph (2), and Otto (3/4).

    According to the Palmer List of Merchant Vessels: "The British ship EDITH BYRNE (Official No. 16216) was built by the Canada Works, Birkenhead, in 1856 (first registered, Liverpool 9 June 1857). 729.44 tons register; 165.4 x 30.2 x 19.7 ft (length x beam x depth of hold); 2 decks.

    "In March 1865, the EDITH BYRNE was purchased from Byrne, of Liverpool, for £8,250 by the Hamburg shipowner, Robert Miles Sloman, who renamed her HERSCHEL, after an earlier vessel that he had sold in Indonesia in 1859. Measurements (Hamburg): 333 Commerzlasten /787 tons; 50,3 x 9,1 x 5,79 meters (length x beam x depth of hold)."

    The master from 1875-1878 was J. J. Kammann. The vessel's voyages in the 1870's:

    1871/73 - Brisbane/intermediate ports/Amsterdam/Cuxhaven
    1873/74 - Queensland/intermediate ports/Cardiff
    1874/75 - Brisbane/intermediate ports/Greenock
    1875/76 - Wellington/Peru
    1876/78 - Adelaide/intermediate ports/Huanillos

    According to the South Australian Genealogy & Heraldry Society, Inc. fact sheet, this voyage of the Herschel originated in Hamburg. Sequence 77/6 -- see http://www.saghs.org.au/ships/shipsH.htm

    On On 1 June 1891 the HERSCHEL was sold to Hartvigsen, of Arendal, Norway. There is no record of her final fate.
