    a search of tunstall and death brings up very few results on the 1850s maybe the newspapers are not there yet

    Glen ............. FMP also had those articles. The ship certainly seemed to get around!

    It always amazes me that you can trawl for ages to find a report then it appears three times on the following page in newspapers hundreds of miles from the location of the event

    I don’t think that the girl I’m looking for Val. I looked for any Charlotte Harrison mentioned in the year of the passport application and the next couple of years on the assumption that the passport was acquired for use soon after it was granted. I found two Charlotte Hs emigrating to Australia but one was a seven year old girl in the bosom of her family and the other was a forty two year old woman.
    I noticed in the explanation of the record set that you found, people of that time did not actual require a passport to emigrate. My Charlotte was from a working class family and probably could not have afforded to make a passport application. In April 1851, she would only have been twelve. The passport number immediately before in the list and issued the same day was for a Thomas Harrison which leads me to believe that Thomas and Charlotte were spouses or possibly father and daughter. My Charlotte’s father was John.

    ah shame, will have another look, wonder if she was in a Hospital or workhouse in 1851
