Abstract: By the early 1850s the European population of New Zealand had grown to more than 30,000. Half of this number had arrived in vessels chartered by the New Zealand Company and three other organisations. To move 15,000 people and their equipment halfway across the world was a major task requiring considerable skills to charter, alter and victual the hundreds of ships involved.
