Hi list,

I am trying to verify if the Eaglet was a British or American barque which left Gravesend in February/March 1868 for Brisbane Australia.

Australian index of “Trove” newspaper in articles state both nationality.   

The barque was involved in a murder case against the captain and mate on its trip to Brisbane arriving July 1868.

I have tried Google but not found much information on the barque’s details except its tonnage.

Actually I am trying to locate a James GIBBINS who was a A.B. on this voyage.

He states on his Marriage Certificate he was born in Paris France but nothing further. 

If SKS could point me in a direction I would be very grateful.

Many thanks
Michele in Sydney Australia
