White Wings Vol II. Founding Of The Provinces And Old-Time Shipping. Passenger Ships From 1840 To 1885
The Owen G1endower, a fine ship formerly belonging to the Blackball Line, made a good passage to Auckland in 1863. She was a vessel of 911 tons, under the command of Captain Norris, who had previously visited Auckland in the ship True Briton in 1852.
The Owen Glendower sailed from Plymouth on June 13th, and arrived at Auckland on September 19th, making the run in 98 days, port to port.page 170
On July 11th, during a heavy squall, several sails were carried away and a boatswain was washed overboard. He was never seen again, and it was supposed the ship passed over him. Two other deaths occurred—a first-class passenger from typhoid, and an infant. The ship landed 250 passengers, all in good health.
A few Albertland settlers arrived in this ship, which made the one trip only to New Zealand.
