Notes for Martha GASKELL

Thomas & Sarah together with their five eldest children emigrated to New Zealand leaving London on 8th April 1851, arriving Canterbury NZ on 12th August 1851, sailing on the good ship Labuan. [157]

It is interesting to note that the second youngest child, 3 year old Martha, travelled in 'paying steerage' class while the rest of the family travelled 'steerage'. Very good to put the infant in a better class, but who would look after her? And why was the 1 year old Harriet Ann in 'steerage'? [102]
