This wooden three-master of 744 tons, built in New Brunswick in 1849, was not of course a Byrne ship but the replacement for the Pallas, the vessel chartered by Henry Boast for his Yorkshire party and condemned as unseaworthy on the eve of sailing. This unsuspected setback threw a number of the poorer emigrants on Henry Boast’s hands, since they had committed themselves by disposing of their homes etc. From April until July they waited in Hull until J. Rylands the shipowner supplied his new ship Haidee for the voyage to Natal. Boast was found liable by a magistrate’s court for their maintenance and bravely faced this commitment from his own funds which, unfortunately, were soon exhausted. The vexation and worry caused his death in May from brain-fever before the Haidee sailed, but his wife Mary, a new widow with three little girls, bravely took over her husband’s task and accompanied the party of 246 emigrants to Natal. Only eight or nine of the original party backed out. On 10 July 1850 the Haidee sailed, with a send-off from many Hull well-wishers. She arrived off the Bluff on 7 October 1850 after a pleasant voyage. The Haidee’s end was a tragic but not unusual one for the ships of her day. On 19 April 1863 she was lost in mid-ocean.
