UTOPIA

from notes by Bev Rundell and Ray Rowsell, Portland Family History Group Inc., Victoria; notes by Keith Dash, a descendant of passengers on the Utopia,; and text in The Long Farewell, by Don Charlwood, 1981.

Sailed from Liverpool, England, on 3 November 1853 and arrived Portland, Australia, 25 January 1854

The Utopia was a 949 ton ship which sailed from Liverpool on 3 November 1853 under the command of Captain W. Wilkinson carrying 390 assisted immigrants, including 102 sponsored by HIES.  The cost for each was £22/9/5.  During the passage of 83 days there were five deaths and five births on board.  One female passenger died in hospital in Portland.  The Surgeon/Superintendent Dr Thomas spoke favourably of the good conduct of the passengers during the voyage.  When the ship arrived in Portland ‘gold fever’ struck and 13 seamen deserted.  Two were reported to have been captured, the remainder eluded the mounted police.  The Utopia sailed from Portland on 1 March 1854 bound for Melbourne carrying 400 tons of coal (part of the original cargo) and 30 passengers in steerage, arriving there on 8 March.  The ship sailed from Melbourne on 15 March bound for Valparaiso carrying part of the original cargo.

As was the practice in immigrant ships of the era, accommodation on board was divided into 3 sections: families and young children; single men and youths; and single women.  The shipping list reflects this.  Children aged 14 or more travelling on the same ship as their parents were accommodated with the single men or women.  Unfortunately, there is no indication in the shipping list as to which passengers were HIES-sponsored, however it seems probable they were the families from Argyle and Inverness, and their older children accommodated separately on the ship.

When immigrant ships arrived in Portland in the 1850s, townspeople and farmers from the local area and further afield in Western Victoria would come to the ship to hire employees to replace those who had left to seek their fortune at the gold diggings.  The name and address of the employer, the agreed wage, and the term of employment, were entered in the passenger list.  Other passengers chose to seek out their own chances and are listed as “On own account”.  Some (many?) of these went to the gold fields.
