Fremantle Stuff > Ships > Medina


The Medina, of 467 tons, arrived 6 July 1830, with (51 or) 52 passengers including John Bateman, Alfred Waylen, Dr G.S.F. Cowcher, and Antony Curtis. The ship's name is thought to come from that of a river on the Isle of Wight. A suburb in southern Perth is in turn named after the ship. The Medina was apparently Capt Pace's ship.
