Passenger Manifest for the Flying Cloud arrival Moreton Bay 08 Mar 1865
« on: Sunday 17 December 17 08:11 GMT (UK) »
I am unable to locate the copy of the original passenger manifest for the Flying Cloud arrival in Moreton Bay 08 Mar 1865.

Henry PARSONS an 18 year old was on board that ship and I want to know if he arrived with other members of his family. 

The Flying Cloud and the journey Henry was on has a number of mentions in Trove.

I looked on the Queensland State Archives at https://data.qld.gov.au/dataset/assisted-immigration-1848-to-1912 without success.

According to the indexes on Ancestry this is the series it should be in:

http://www.archivessearch.qld.gov.au/Search/SeriesDetails.aspx?SeriesId=13086

Click on 'view items' and it should be in either item 18474 or 18475, but I cannot see anything there.  It could also be an entirely different item which has not yet been digitised.  You will have to contact the archives as it may still be on their 'to do' list.

Bear in mind that a lot of the 1860s immigration records were lost or damaged in the 1893 floods and many of those that you see online are lists that have been reconstructed where possible and often only show a name and age.
