Papers relating to his expedition to the Pacific and Moluccas

  • AU PMB MS 135
  • Collection
  • 1525 - 1536

The expedition of Garcia Jofre de Loaisa left Spain for the Moluccas on 24 July 1525, to open up the spice trade initiated by the Magellan expedition. Of the seven ships under Loaisa originally, only four entered the Pacific - via the Strait of Magellan, on 26 May 1526. A few days later, they were separated by a storm. One ship, the Santiago, made her way to Mexico; another, the San Lesmes, was not heard of again; and the remaining two, the Santa Maria del Parral and Santa Maria de la Victoria, crossed the Pacific independently.<BR>The documents on these microfilms concern the fitting out and dispatch of the expedition, accounts of the expedition's proceedings, and claims for salaries by dependents of expedition members who died in the Moluccas or on the voyage out.<BR>Details of contents are given for each reel, however, a more comprehensive listing, including names etc., is available from the Pacific Manuscripts Bureau on request.

Journal of voyage of HMS Discovery and Chatham

  • Collection
  • 20 December 1790 - 22 June 1793

Manby (c.1766-1834) was a member of the expedition to the Pacific Ocean commanded by Capt. George Vancouver. He left England as master's mate and returned as acting lieutenant. He made a voyage to the Arctic in 1808 and lived the rest of his life in his native Norfolk. He was promoted to the rank of rear-admiral in 1825.

The journal gives an account of the Vancouver expedition, which left England on 1 April 1791 and reached Australia by way of the Cape of Good Hope. After surveying part of the Western Australian coast, the Discovery and Chatham sailed for New Zealand and then Tahiti. The island of Rapa was discovered on 22 December 1791. From Tahiti the two ships sailed for Hawaii and then to the north-west coast of America. They visited Hawaii a second time early in 1793. The journal ends about 16 months before the Vancouver expedition returned to England.

The microfilms in this series were obtained during two projects organised in 1970 and 1976 by the PMB. Each project was known as the PMB New England Microfilming Project and was under the direction of Dr John Cumpston, a specialist in early Australian maritime history. The purpose of the projects was to obtain microfilm copies of significant American records having a bearing on the history of Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and the Pacific basin generally. More than 40 libraries, museums and private individuals in New England made their records available to Dr Cumpston for microfilming or provided him with copies of their records on film where microfilming projects had already been carried out. The first project was sponsored by 12 libraries and the second by ten. The ten libraries which sponsored both projects are: the National Library of Australia, Canberra; the Library, Australian National University, Canberra; the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney; the Library, University of Sydney; the State Library of South Australia, Adelaide (in association with the libraries of the University of Adelaide and the Flinders University of South Australia); the State Library of Tasmania, Hobart; the State Library of Victoria, Melbourne; the Library Board of Western Australia, Perth; the National Library of New Zealand, Wellington; and the Library, University of Hawaii, Honolulu. The two libraries which sponsored only the first project are: the Library, University of Newcastle, New South Wales; and the State Library of Queensland, Brisbane. Reels numbered PMB 200-412 were obtained under the first project and reels numbered PMB 540-545; PMB 571-580; 671-699; 720-900 (includes American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions); 910-911; 914-915; and 953-958 under the second project.
