Colonial engraving of the 2nd John Williams, a missionary ship under the command of Captain Robert Clark Morgan (1798–1864) and owned by the London Missionary Society. She was named after John Williams (1796–1839), a missionary who had been active in the South Pacific. She was paid for by the contribution of English school children.
