Search The Early Settlers Database
You can search the Nelson City Council Early Settlers’ Database to find information
about your ancestors who arrived by sea in the years 1841 to 1850 to settle in the
Nelson Region. This information is based on original NZ Company Passengers To Nelson
manifests and shipping lists published in The Colonist newspaper 1841-1850,
supplied by the Nelson Provincial Museum.
While all due care and attention to detail has been taken, because of the passage
of time, some records may be incomplete or inaccurate.
