http://www.tenbratpress.org/ 'Java, The Sailing Ship 1813-18, with '3592 ANDREW McKISSOCK 1 1 5308 22/7/39' (1 adult male, 1 adult female) http://www.fortunecity.com/littleitaly/amalfi/13/shipik.htm
The 3-masted, square-rigged ship JAVA, Alexander Duthie, master, J. Smith, ship's surgeon, and H. C. Martin, surgeon superintendent, sailed from London on 12 October 1839, and from Plymouth on 29 October, and arrived at Adelaide on 6 February 1840, with 464 passengers; approximately 30 additional passengers had died on the passage. The JAVA departed on 5 March 1840, in ballast, for Batavia.
The JAVA was 1175 tons, built in Calcutta by Blackmore & Co, in 1811; 159 ft 2 in x 40 ft 6 in (length x beam) [R. T. Sexton, ,i>Shipping arrivals and departures, South Australia, 1627-1850; guide for genealogists and maritime historians, Roebuck Society Publication No. 42 (Ridgehaven, SA: Gould Books/ Aranda, ACT: Roebuck Society, 1990). pp. 63 (where the number of dead is incorrectly given as 3) and 225]. According to Ian Hawkins Nicholson, Log of logs : a catalogue of logs, journals, shipboard diaries, letters, and all forms of voyage narratives, 1788 to 1988, for Australia and New Zealand and surrounding oceans, vol. 2, Roebuck Society Publication No. 47 (Yaroomba, Qld: The Author jointly with the Australian Association for Maritime History, 1993), p. 244, quite a bit of information--although I do not know about a picture--of the JAVA is available:
1. Journal, 28 October 1839-6 February 1840, of William/George Richards, in the Mortlock Library, State Library of South Australia, Adelaide (see), D4718(L).
2. Typescript of a "Log", by James Trangmar, from Gravesend, 12 October 1839, to Holdfast Bay, February 1840--including Crossing the Line (the Equator), near mutiny by the crew, and a race with the RAJASTHAN, 5-6 February 1840, to anchorage of Gleneig, South Africa, including return to England--also in the Mortlock Library, State Library of South Australia.
3. Minutes of the medical board inquiry into the JAVA's voyage, in the Public Record Office of South Australia (PO Box 713, North Adelaide 5006, South Australia), 1839/312a 27.
4. An account of the voyage, based on the above sources, as well as a later history of the JAVA as a troopship in the 1840's and as a hulk from c.1865 to 1939, has been privately published by Stephen Barnett, JAVA: Being the Melancholy True Story of the Voyage of the East Indiaman Java with Emigrants to the Colony of South Australia ... (1990 and 1991). The work is available directly from the author at 42 Cooinda Avenue, Redwood Park 5097, South Australia.
5. There is also an account of the voyage in the chapter "The Floating Coffin", in Colin Kerr, A exelent coliney; the practical idealists of 1836-1846 (Adelaide: Rigby, 1978). - [Posted to the Emigration-Ships Mailing List by Michael Palmer - 14 August 1998]
