I am interested to find out more about one of the crew on the Sorata named M.W. Merrygold, from Ipswich. Departing London to Sydney, New South Wales 18th Dec. 1884. Would you have more information when he joined as a crew member? Many thanks

According to naturalization records, my great-grandfather arrived in Australia in August 1886 aboard the SS Sorata (via Port Said, Egypt). Do any passenger lists survive? Thank you!
