NRS 13278: Unassisted passengers, 1826-1900

This series consists of forms signed by captains of arriving vessels which contained information about passengers entering Australia. The lists contain general information about the ship and the voyage such as: name and tonnage of the ship; port of departure; name of master; date of arrival; seamen’s names, positions, age and town and country of birth. The lists also record passengers’ names but sometimes omit the given names. The names of children travelling with their parents are rarely given – often only the number and gender of the children is shown or the fact that they are ‘infants’ or ‘teenage’. Examples of such entries include - 'Mr Kingsford and two children'; 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith and infant'. Some descriptions indicate the passenger’s occupation, or identify them as ‘tourists’ or ‘travellers’. The entries sometimes indicate the class of travel or the location of the passengers within the ship, e.g. Cabin, Saloon and Steerage. Lists sometimes contain information about the skin colour or race of passenger e.g. ‘White’, ‘Brown’, ‘Asiatic’ or ‘European’. Remarks may include details such as whether a passenger was in transit to New Zealand or carried no papers.
