To J. Any further information you can supply on the 1/11th and the ships that carried them to Sydney would be very much appreciated.

Here's something to get you started:

There are possibly other ships as well.

More later.

I've prepared a tabulation of all the ships I was able to locate which appeared to carry members of the 11th Devonshire.  I cannot guarantee accuracy nor completeness and would appreciate input and editing.  I've put links in the attachment to all the sources I used.  If there was more than one date for the same event, I've entered both.  If there was more than one port of origin listed, I've put them both in.  My challenge is to figure out which ship my ancestor came in and my next task is to compare arrival dates etc to the paylists for the regiments (available at the NLA and some other major libraries).  J


Oh heck, it won't allow me to attach a word document and it is in table form so it won't paste neatly in this forum.  Please send personal message (via the "My Messages" towards the top of the page) and I will give you my email address.  Ditto anyone else interested.

Just a follow-up.  I am still trying to sort out the ships which carried the 11th Regiment and I remain interested.   J
