Wow, everyone - great sleuthing  ;D And fascinating....

So, whilst the mother of Agnes Adelaide Astley Windett was Caroline (who married to Daniel Brown 20/1/1835 St. Geo. Han.Sq. London) where was this Agnes in 1841?

Is it certain though, that this Caroline is Agnes' mother? (Or did I miss something)

 
Thankyou Shaun J that makes a bit of sense as the family story tale is that a Lord Astley was the father of Agnes

Ahh,  ;D that just goes to show......every little possible clue, no matter how unlikely it seems!

Cheers

Well done ShaunJ, I had looked for Lord Hastings in 1841 but didnt find him.

I think as she names her Father as Jacob Astley in Shipping Record it is fairly conclusive.
I wonder why she left from Wiltshire.
Did the Astleys or Windetts have connections there?

She didn't. The passenger list says that her place of origin was Yarmouth. 

The "North Newton Wiltshire" bit is a transcription error and belongs to an Edith Spratt further up the page.
