There's a book on this subject which might be exactly what you need:

In Sickness and in Health: Brother's Pride and Bahia.: Two Ships. Two Fates. One Arrival Date. Lyttelton Heads, 1863.

And I think the resources provided on your other topic might also be helpful for this enquiry.

https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=857144.0

I would add to the list Lyttelton (and/or Christchurch) City Council Archives, Christchurch City
Museum and the Christchurch branch of Archives New Zealand.

A local history group might be able to confirm whether immigrants took an overland route or not.

Hi Alan,

The Camp Bay referred to must be the one in Lyttelton Harbour.

Very interesting history, see

Ashley, it's quite possible that your ancestors walked over the hill into Akaroa with all their belongings. It was cheaper and safer.

However a search of Papers Past might find a record of them travelling there on a coastal vessel.

Best wishes to everyone for Christmas and the New Year, and a big thank you to all those that posted their queries on RootsChat and all those that worked to solve their (sometimes very complex) mysteries. 8) 8)
