Ship's Passenger Information
« on: Friday 15 January 10 14:56 GMT (UK) »

Hi all,

What sort of information would be included about a passenger on ship's list? Ideally between 1860-1900, from Britiain to Canada. Was there a standard form or does the amount and type of info vary?

Thanks  :) 
I am interested in finding out more about these families:

Branthwayt(e): Thrapston, Northamptonshire
Branwhite: Suffolk and Essex
Flude: London
Godfrey: Hertfordshire and Romford, Essex
Gregory: Derbyshire and Shoreditch, London
Lowen: Epping in Essex
Matty: Tewkesbury  in Glucestershire and Essex
Mills; Hackney, London
Monro: Berwickshire, Hertfordshire, London
Oliver: from Essex
Sadler: Shoreditch and Hackney
Shorten: Belchamp Walter, Essex
Tickell: recorded in Shoreditch

Hi,

I'm not sure about a standard form but I have a brother and sister emigrating together to Canada 1893; the passenger list shows his name, age and occupation but she is down as Miss   xxxxxx ,spinster, 18.


Hope that helps.

Cheers everyone, that's exactly the info I'm after  ;D I'm hoping to find where he came in the UK, and it looks like I'll be able to.

Thanks  :)

I've found the information varies greatly.  Sometimes its a simple list, others you get dates of birth etc
Paternal: Staffordshire, Shropshire, Lancashire, Cheshire, Durham, Wales, Arrondissements Oudenaarde and Gent, Belgium, -  - Maternal: Cheshire, Lancashire, Ireland
