Hi Susan,

Thank you very much for all that fantastic information on the “Success”. 

You are an absolute goldmine !

All the amazing amount of work that must have gone in to amassing and cataloguing the information is so greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Brett

I haven’t been able find the exact date that the ship arrived or when it left England. I’d be interested to know what the route may have been that it took, too.
