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.

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
