    Victoria Inward Passenger Lists 1839-1923
    James Henderson 28 1826 Scotch Left Greenock
    Arrived Melbourne August 1854 on ship Hurricane


    NO NO NO .......... probably not, image shows occupation as BAKER, and accompanied by "Mrs" (no name), age 24 and child age 1 month

    NOTE:- I had to move 3 pages on from the image that appeared before finding the correct one.

    I'll leave it on so rule this on out.

          Kat, that certainly seems like him . Wonder where he was between 1867 and 1881? I tried Trove but nothing is coming up. Know the feeling Sylvia ! Once followed a family for 3 months then discovered I was barking up the wrong tree.

            There is a James Collier in the Tasmanian convict records. Tried at Edinburgh May 1845 and transported for 7 years for housebreaking & theft. Arrived 30 Dec 1845 aged 19, Native Place stated as Edinburgh. Ship name given as Prestongee Bomangee, so its the same person as the 1881 report
