Ship arrivals and departures Port Natal 1865-1866

This partial list is taken from the Natal Almanac and gives an idea of the traffic experienced at the port of Durban for the year ending 1866. It also shows the wide variety of tonnage of the vessels and the duration of their voyages, also their ports of departure and destination.

We can see that the ship Adelaide from Madras, undoubtedly carrying Indian migrant workers (over 300 of them) was wrecked on the Bar at Natal.
