    There is a name missing here which appears on the plaque in Cathedral Square. My husband’s Great Aunt, Catherine Miln, was a passenger on Sir George Seymour.

      Thank you for that information – the list has been updated.
      Interestingly, in the Christchurch Star 15 December 1900, there is a published list of passengers on the First Four Ships. And your Catherine is in there – but is named as Miss Kate Miln!

      You might want to also go over to our sister website: firstfourships.nz where I suspect Catherines name may also be missing

    The Denton family were John Frederick Denton, his wife Anne and their 8 children.
    His wife Anne and 3 of his children died in 1851 from fever.
    The Arthur John mentioned above was one of the children aged 16 at the time and was married in 1857
