My gg grandparents, Samuel and Elizabeth Harris travelled to NZ in 1859 on the clipper ship the Tornado. This blog contains the story of that journey and the people on it, told mainly through the diaries of Alexander Campbell, Thomas Booth and a "Glasgow Emigrant" as well as other information I have stumbled over from time to time.
