What was he called?

 
Well, blow me, my family has been telling me fibs. There is no way my great-grandfather could have been on a Shackelton ship as their first sibling was born in 1890 and my great grandfather was born in 1850, which means he probably arrived in NZ in 1880 plus or minus 5 or ten years...  Now, who told me that story about Shackelton??  Is it too early to wake the dead? I want answers!!
The German woman bit though is true. I've traced her line back to a small village in North Germany.

For a more uplifting Antarctic story check out Ernest Shackleton - who incidently was a member of one of Scott's earlier expeditions. I've seen the James Caird at Greenwich - it's tiny, and a friend of mine was lucky enough to visit his grave on South Georgia.

 
An absolutely fascinating story!

I saw a really good exhibition on Shackleton last time I was at The National Museum at Collins Barracks, Dublin
There was a ship on display in the courtyard but I don't recall if it was related or not.

Until you have lost almost everything —- your ability to support yourself, the respect of your children, most of your worldly goods —- it's impossible to understand. I am an empty shell.
