Thanks for the suggestion Jamjar - that's what I did with John COOK but it came up with nothing except a list of BMDS, even though I then filtered it to travel (or immigration or whatever the filter is.)

Will have another go later.  Judith

You have to click on ‘Collections’ then scroll down to Migration and Naturalisation.

Thanks - will have a go.  I still find it odd that this immgration of John COOK doesn't seem to be on the usual indexes.   :-\  Judith

FamilySearch have the arrival date wrong.  The departure date for the Marco Polo is correct as 9 Nov 1853 and it arrived in Jan 1854.

There is the date 30-1-54 on the last page of the record, on FamilySearch.

Thank you for letting us see this gravestone, Annette; it's a lovely memorial with a good deal of information.

Wonderful that FamilySearch has the images of the shipping records but the date transcriptions on more than one record are a bit hit and miss, especially putting the arrival before the departure.
