    KELLY, Alexander Charles (1811–1877) - 1840s emigration related work thumbnail image
    Public

    Type: Biographical timeline
    Ambition: Ideally I'd like to make this a "global" list in an enhanced Trove.
    Scope and Purpose: This list contains early biographical detail for Alexander Charles Kelly - surgeon, promoter of migration from Scotland to South Australia, vigneron, winemaker at Morphett Vale (Tintara vineyard) and amateur artist. It focuses on his early emigration related activities in the 1840s and not on his winemaking. Kelly was surgeon superintendant on several migrant ships. This list was used partly to determine if there was more than one Dr Kelly at the time. It identifies another Dr. Kelly.

    CONCLUSION: There was another Dr Kelly as follows:
    1838-11-16 Emigrant ship "Rajasthan" arrives Adelaide with "James B. Kelly and wife" cabin passengers.
    1838-12-08 "Dr Kelly" selling powders and medical kits imported on migrant ship "Rajasthan".
    1839-09-22 KELLY James Joseph died aged 32; Holy Trinity register; probably buried West Tce Cemetery.
    1840-05-02 Eliza, widow of the late J. B. Kelly, Esq., Surgeon, remarried Trinity Church.

    KELLY, Alexander Charles:
    1839-11-22 "A. C. Kelly, Esq., surgeon superintendent" departs Liverpool on emigrant ship "Baboo".
    1840-03-10 Kelly arrives Adelaide on "Baboo" migrant ship from Liverpool.
    1840-04-14 MR ALEX. C. KELLY, M. D. commences medical practice.
    1843-01-25 A.C. Kelly selects 80 acres, section 634.
    1846-02-09 "Dr Kelly" departs for London aboard "John Heyes". Also aboard "A. Hardy and son" (future wine connection?).
    1846-06-28 "John Heyes" arrives London.
    1846-11-05 "Princess Royal" departs London
    1847-03-16 "Dr Kelly, surgeon superintendent" arrives Adelaide on migrant ship "Princess Royal".
    1847-06-17 "Lady McNaughton" departs London
    1847-10-13 A. C. Kelly, Surgeon Superintendent and (his mother) Mrs Kelly arrive Adelaide on migrant ship "Lady McNaughton" from London
    1854-11-01 Kelly married Annie Frances WORTHINGTON.
    1877-10-09 Kelly died.

    Dr. Kelly having been loudly called for, returned thanks. He said he had not done much in the way of raising horticultural productions, but he had made some experiments with vines which he thought it might be useful to make generally known. He had attempted to establish a vineyard on a cheap scale, by dispensing with manual labor in trenching. He had first made a furrow with a common plough, and then followed with a subsoil one, and in this manner a man and a boy, with a team of bullocks, did an acre in a week, and on the land prepared in this manner he had planted vines, the appearance of which was such as to convince him that the same plan might be carried to
    a much greater extent, and with success.

    About two years ago the happy idea occurred to Dr Kelly, of Morphett Vale (a gentleman of high scientific acquirements, and who has visited several of the vine districts of France), that the subsoil plough would be admirably adapted to the calcareous soils of that district. He tried it accordingly. He ploughed five acres to the depth of two feet. He planted vines - principally procured from the vineyard of Messrs Mac arthur, New South Wales, and his success has been quite triumphant. The vigorous growth and health of his vines, and the small number that have failed, has been long the theme of wonder ; and the Doctor's vineyard is now visited by persons from all parts of the colony as one of its most interesting "lions." We refer to a communication in another column, which Dr Kelly has been kind enough to forward to us, as worthy of great attention. His directions with reference to subsoil ploughing for the vine are most important, and his remarks upon sub- soil ploughing the plains not less so.

    We may just mention, however, that a letter has been received by the Nelson, from Dr Kelly, who states that the Commissioners decline sending emigrants direct from Scotland to South Australia, on account of the expense, as the shipowners require an advance of £5 per head additional if taken on board at any of the ports in Scotland. Our Scotch friends, however, will be glad to learn that Dr Kelly has succeeded in filling a vessel with Scotch emigrants to sail from London in all June. He had himself taken a passage for this colony in the "Lady McNaughton", which may be expected to arrive from London in three weeks or a month.

    Our worthy friend Dr Kelly, informs us that he found very great difficulty in persuading Scots labourers to emigrate. The march of intellect is certainly very slow in its progress or the school- master has really gone abroad. The labouring class are deploringly ignorant of the capabilities of this colony; many of them refuse to believe anything good of it; and a number of them are convinccd that if they came to Australia they would certainly be eaten by the New Zealand savages, thinking that the two countries are as close as the three Lothians. Consequently, the emigrants of the 'Lady McNaughton' are of a very motley charracter. There are about 100 Scotch, 50 English, and 50 Irish. A number of the latter were sent on board half starved, and several died of billious fever caused by over eating. The demand for Scotch shepherds has been very great, and they are correspondingly saucy.

    It is with regret that we record the death of Dr. Kelly, which took place on Wednesday morning at his residence, Norwood. The deceased gentleman was a very old colonist, having arrived here in the year 1838 or 1839, and he soon after settled at Morphett Vale, where he lived for many years greatly re- spected by the residents in that part of the country. He was not very fond of bis profession, but devoted himself to rural pursuits, and especially to the cultivation of the vine. His services as a physician were, however, often sought by his neighbors, and his obliging disposition, and especially his kindness to people in straitened circumstances, were well known. Some years ago he took charge of the Tintara Vineyard, owned by a Company, but recently he removed to Norwood. For a considerable period Dr. Kelly had been in feeble health, so that his decease will not take his friends by surprise, though it will cause sorrow to many, particularly among old colonists.
