The Lady Jocelyn arrived in Auckland on 17 August 1878 with the second party of Katikati settlers. Apart from George Vesey Stewart's parents, brother Hugh and sister-in-law Adela, the No. 2 party included "two Generals, a Major, two or three Captains and Lieutenants, a Canon, a Doctor, no end of pretty girls and fine young men."
