....Transcribed by Tom Stiglmayer and Donated to the Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild
It is believed that this transcription only lists those who disembarked
in Fremantle,
since the ship carried hundreds more passengers.
The source was most likely the records in the National Archives
of Australia's Perth collection....
