Cadsonbury

Facsimile edition, first published 1928. The clipper ship Crusader played a significant part in the early colonisation of New Zealand by European settlers. Between December 1871 and December 1897 she made 28 trips from Great Britain to New Zealand, carrying a total of thousands of immigrants. It was passengers on her fifth voyage, from September to December 1874, who instigated the formation of the Crusader Association. In 1925 - to mark 50 years after their arrival - they held a reunion at which they formed the Association, which included people who had arrived on other voyages.
