  • Sarah McAdam and Thomas Bridgeman immigrated to New Zealand in 1855. Just when Thomas and Sarah arrived in New Zealand is uncertain. Family hearsay has it that they travelled on the ship Gil Blass from Melbourne on 3 September 1855, as steerage passengers under the name of Mr and Mrs Adams. Sarah would have been eight months pregnant at the time. (Taranaki Bridgeman family hearsay) has it that Thomas 'jumped ship' and was liable for severe punishment, if he had been caught . Does this refer to Thomas' leaving the HMS Britomart without permission way back in 1841 when Owen Stanley surveyed Auckland harbour?

    But why travel when your are 8 months pregnant, (although this is what Jane Eyles did when she sailed from Nelson in 1835), and why under an assumed name, only to revert to your correct name once you are settled. A James Adams was born in 1856 but to a Margret and James Adams. Three more children were born to Thomas and Sarah McAdam - Thomas Henry in Otago in 1857, South Island and twins Priscilla and Sarah in 1859, all under the name of Bridgeman.
