Justina arrived at Natal 11 November 1850, a barque commanded by Captain Brown
Not one of Byrne's ships, the Justina carried the second party of immigrants under a copy-cat scheme privately arranged by George P Murdoch (who worked for Byrne's solicitors) and Capt. Richard W Pelly. Edmund Morewood was agent in Natal. The first group of settlers sent out by Murdoch had arrived earlier in the Ballangeich.
Passengers included the Reynolds family, later important Natal sugar planters, the Chadwicks, the Vinsons, the Griffiths family and the Buchanans.
In the original Natal Witness extract note mention of the Byrne vessels Emily, Devonian and Bernard.
