[TSL] Passenger classes

Hi All

I had some ancestors come to Australia in January 1851. They came out
intermediate class. I know their tickets cost 15 per head (did this
include children?) and that they bought a large chest of drawers with them
that apparently held their needs while on the journey and someone also
believes the baby would have slept in the bottom drawer. The chest is still
in the family.
So what did intermediate travel entail. I have seen steerage and heard
about cabin but not much out there on intermediate. They travelled with 3
children under about 4 years of age.

yours gratefully
