Hello Judy,

I wasn't unknown, but sailing vessels did not often stop at "way-ports" 
after they had boarded their passengers.   In reading the cover page, it 
indicates that the passengers were boarded at Bremen only.

She was a Bremen vessel, ship-rigged vessel, 1515 tons, the Master was 
F. Hirdes.  It is a really nice list ... 588 passengers, all German.

Exception for sailing vessels stopping at way-ports were, for example, a 
sailing vessel for Australia leaving from London with cargo, stopping at 
Southampton, or Plymouth to pick up passengers then at the Cape for 
supplies.
