My GGGF, his wife and 6 of their 8 children arrived in Adelaide on this ship. They were Henry Prendergast 1813-1867 and Mary Costello 1815-1902 both from Tuam, Galway. My GGM Margaret Prendergast was ten years old at the time.

l believe my husbands first ancestor to come to australia travelled from london on the ship "Pestonjee Bomanjee"16/2/1851 in Adelaide. l would love to find a picture of this ship for him. Any help much appreciated thanks J Davison

My GGGF's eldest sister Mary Ann Land arrived by herself on the 1838 voyage. She is listed as Ann on the passenger listing and was married a Martin Higgins 3 months after arriving whose arrival to the SA colony is not yet established. She was the first of the Land family to emigrate with my GGGF arriving in Queensland in 1858. They lived in the same area at Drayton, near Toowoomba.
