Subject: [DEV] Plymouth Shipping 1849 and 1851
My name is Bob McKenzie and I am new to this list.
I have been looking for archived online Plymouth newspapers for 1849 an 1851
without any success. I have access to a number of searchable online British
newspapers, but nothing I can see in Plymouth. Can anyone assist with any
My interest is in the ship SEA that carried Government Emigrants from
Liverpool to Australia, via Plymouth.
In 1841 she carried newspapers to Sydney, from Plymouth dated 28th June,
which mentioned some details of the SEA. These articles were reprinted in
the Sydney Morning Herald, stating they were from a Plymouth paper dated
28th June. I would like to know the name of that paper, and any Shipping
Intelligence mentioning the arrival and departure of the SEA.
In 1851 she was again in Plymouth about May 12-17, and I would like to again
know of any Shipping Intelligence mentioning her arrival and departure.
Any assistance would be most appreciated.
Cheers...Bob in Oz
