" My assumption is that they may have travelled to Australia together, so I'm trying to find information on the 'MacLeod'. "

This is a "hypothesis" or "conjecture",  not an assumption.

What you have quoted there,  would mean that the ship's captain and/or owner was C. McLeod.   It is not the name of the ship.

Thanks to all for your input. I think I just have to accept that there is no passenger list.

Even so, the newspaper articles are useful to fill in the story and the references provided are much appreciated.
