    The barquentine rigged John Williams was built in 1894 for the London Missionary Society, a Christian mission organisation. She served as a supply vessel between Australia and Pacific Islands to Australia's north and north-east including New Guinea. She was replaced and sold in 1931 for further service and was last heard of in Chinese waters in the 1950s.
