Brig Amity replica

The Amity was a 148 ton brig used in several notable voyages of exploration and settlement in Australia in the early nineteenth century. She was built in New Brunswick, Canada, in 1816 and for several years was used as a merchant trading vessel between America and Britain. In 1823 she was purchased by the Scottish Ralston Family to be fitted out for their emigration to Van Diemen's Land. Under the command of Captain McMeckan she departed from Stranraer in southern Scotland on 15 November, 1823, travelling via Dublin, across the Atlantic Ocean to Rio de Janeiro and arriving in Hobart exactly five months later on 15 April, 1824. 21 passengers including Robert Ralston, his wife Elizabeth, two sons and six daughters made the journey, as well as cargo and livestock including two bulls and four cows from Scotland. Ralston later sold the brig to the Government of New South Wales in Sydney where she was used for exploration and supply voyages.
