Shirley,

Now I see where you found that record. I have also included the list as 
other members might have resources to be able to help.
"Index to Outward Passengers to Interstate, UK, NZ and Foreign Ports 
1852-1923 "

The GREAT BRITAIN sailed from Melbourne on January 27th.   I don't see 
Charlotte listed as a cabin passenger.

Here is a bit of history about the vessel ... note the passage times 
from Liverpool to Melbourne.   I'm not too sure, but I think the reverse 
trips would be a little longer.

You are not able to find an inbound British passenger list before 1890.  
There definitely would be an arrival in a newspaper.   Maybe another 
lister can search for the Liverpool arrival ... if you are lucky, there 
may be a voyage report.    The vessel sailed again on May 26 1864, so I 
would expect an April 1864 arrival at Liverpool.

best of luck,

Sue
