 Found this under Red Jacket (clipper) on Wikipedia:



At Liverpool she had her bottom coppered and cabins fitted out for the Australian immigrant trade.
Red Jacket was purchased by Pilkington & Wilcox and other Liverpool investors with registry changing on April 24, 1854. (Most secondary sources say that the vessel was bought by the British a year later, copying a mistake made by earlier historians.) She was then chartered by the White Star Line for a run to Melbourne, Australia. Under Captain Samuel Reid (who owned 1/16 of her), she reached in Melbourne in 69 days. Only one clipper, James Baines, ever made the run faster.
Red Jacket served in the immigrant trade until 1861, when she became an Australian and Indian coastal freighter.




Fate of the ship

Hi.

I am having trouble finding a passenger list for ship Red Jacket.
?
What I know and who I am researching is John Hunter age 34, from Northern 
Ireland come to Australia in 1858 on the Red Jacket. I know from the years of 
1870 -1880 he lived in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia

I have look at these site and have so far no luck in finding the right Red 
Jacket and the date.

Can some one point me in the right direction to find the passenger list

Kris

Hi Kris

 This was one of the famous clipper ships. Came to Melbourne a 
few times .  Suggest you check out the VIC PRO  indexes
http://prov.vic.gov.au/index_search?searchid=23  You should find 
your John HUNTER arriving in Feb 1858 aged 34

Are a few refs in Trove too, mainly regarding the speed of its 
voyage and the news it carried from London.


Bye
