Passenger lists
« on: Wednesday 19 November 14 12:09 GMT (UK) »
I'm looking for the passenger list for the Hereward that arrived in Australia in October 1883.  I can find the names of the crew but not the passengers.  Cam anyone help?

I don't think there were any. The space for passengers' names on the right of the list is empty and has the word 'Nil' written in the column.

Thanks.  I'm just wondering now if the person I'm looking for was  a crew member.  I'm looking for Henrik Persson and there is a Hy. Peroson listed as a crew member.  The only issue is that there is a 3 year discrepancy in his birth date.

I wouldn't rule him out for a difference of 3 years. Do you have any other records for him, I presume he is Swedish ?

From his naturalisation certificate (not dated) I see he was born in Limar in Sweden.  We know he changed his name to Henry Pearson in Australia and married Margaret B Harrower in 1902 in Sydney.  He died in 1950 and lived around the Newcastle area in NSW Australia.  Family stories say he was a wood cutter, but the naturalisation certificate says he was a miner, which may also be true.

Hi Rosietwy
Can you give me his birth date and does it say Limar.
I can then perhaps trace him here in Sweden.

Hi
I think I have found your Henry.
He was born in Lima, Dalarna, Sweden and lived in Hedemora. He was born 11 March 1858. His parents' names were Per Hindricsson and Kerstin Jonsdotter. His christening's name was Hindric. He was a seaman and was put in the "missing persons" book around 1881.
