Journey from Bremen, Germay to South Hampton, England

Journey from Bremen, Germay to South Hampton, England

Hello, I was wondering if there is anyone out there who might be able to help me with the following:

My great great grandparents left Bremen, Germany in May of 1861, they were on the Steamship "New York" I have found out that they arrived in South Hampton, England. They left South Hampton, England on May 15, 1861, and arrived at Castle Garden in New York City on May 28, 1861.
My question is:

I was wondering if anyone out there knows how many nautical miles it is from Bremen, Germany to South Hampton, England and can you give me at least a rough estimation as to how many days it would take a steamship like the New York to go from Bremen to South Hampton?

I am hoping to figure out the day that they might have left Bremen, Germany.


Any help would be appreciated!


Thank you,

Keith Lawrence

I entered "bremen to southampton 'nautical miles'" into a search engine and came up with this:

395 nautical miles

That, however, is by plane. The sailing distance would be somewhat greater.

Entering "steamship from bremen to southampton" brings up quite lot of information, including this very interesting site which might answer your questions:
