*new* for TheShipsList website
All the new and updated files and databases have been placed on their
own page(s) Find them on the front page in between the big arrows
At the bottom of each of these pages I have placed links named "
previous month " and " next month " so you are able to navigate back and
forth between the monthly *new & updated* pages, as I only keep three
months of *new* page links on the Home page. New for April 2014 is . . .
o Quebec Steamboats
o St. Lawrence - 14th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 12th July 1831
o John Molson - 13th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 13th July 1831
o Chambly - 13th trip up, Quebec to Montreal, 14th July 1831
o South Australia
o barque Pak Wan, from London to Port Adelaide August 25th, 1874
o ship Murray, from London to Port Adelaide October 5th, 1874
Three more Quebec steamboat passenger list for 1831. I still love the
Chambly, full names for most. Looking rather Irish this time. Found
this on the St. Lawrence "314 Crazy Devil" Not sure who that might be,
also "334 Miss Something" ... compiler humour?
Back to short-ship lists for SA 1874. The MURRAY is a puzzle because
the original list clearly states that all are Scots, except for the
Stewart family. However, I have been unable to find them in any UK
census records. Others listed as Scots were clearly not! I would love to
hear from anyone with family on that vessel.
I don't think that *new* for March got posted to AUS-SAGEN, so I am
repeating the CITY OF ADELAIDE info here
o South Australia
o ship City of Adelaide, from London via Plymouth to Port
Adelaide August 24th, 1874
Back to a nice big list of assisted emigrants to South Australia for
1874. We had lots of info about this arrival because of her stranding. I
even added some details about one Cabin family. We don't often learn
much about them, but this family, the Wilcox, had three trips on the
City of Adelaide, so I felt compelled to include their story.
o Ship Arrivals:
o Ships to Quebec 1831 (second page finished up to September 1)
I love adding more newspaper accounts, as this 2nd page includes many
things more than the arrivals of the vessels with settlers, but also
some accounts of some long passages with passengers running out of food
and getting help from other ships and even putting into other ports.
I included a couple of Ads ... one for a run-away indentured apprentice
and another was for a stolen horse ... guess which reward was higher ?
The names ages and descriptions of the young men would be priceless for
I'm surprised to see so many settlers still arriving so late in the season
