Ship ‘Tartar’ passenger list

Ships Passenger list 2

Ships Passenger List

Last week I managed to go to the Battye Library, in Perth city. There they hold all the passenger lists for incoming ships to the Swan River Colony as it was known in the 18,00’s.

It was really exciting to find the original list on microfilm, but disapointing that none of the single females on the ship were listed with their professions or place of birth/region. However there is lots of information about the women on the ship ‘Tartar’ coming into Fremantle from the rare book ‘An Australian Parsonage’ by Mrs Edward Millet. More of this soon.
