Comment

Originally sailed from Birkenhead 6th July 1854 with 518 passengers and 51 crew members, but returned to Liverpool due to an outbreak of cholera. A total of 57 people died. Finally set sail 8th August and arrived in Adelaide with 482 immigrants, including my 3-times great grandparents and their 6 children.
