THE SHIP “FIERY STAR”

by Fitzroy 1920

The Fiery Star was a ship of 1300 tons, Captain W. H. Yale, with Dr. David Salmond as Surgeon Superintendent. Her place, in chronological order, was after the first trip of the Bayswater. She sailed from Queenstown, Ireland, on august 11, 1864, with 476 immigrants. This vessel had a remarkably fine passage to her destination, which occupied only eighty six days – the fastest on record to Keppel Bay.

Dr. Salmond settled in Rockhampton and was the Health Officer, in succession to Dr. W. Callaghan, for many years.

The writer has not many particulars about this vessel, but statements have been made of a lack of discipline in connection with some of the immigrants, and there was the usual trouble with the sailors. The ship was burnt on the voyage home.

Among the passengers was Thomas Rosier, a butcher, who was well known and liked in Rockhampton. He married and had a family, and did so well in early life that he and his wife took a trip to the old land, but soon returned. Both are dead, but their children are living.
