Hello everybody

Hoping this will be helpful and of interest to someone who might be doing research into their family tree.
I am researching an emigrant ship that came to grief in 1853, she made an aborted first voyage and returned to Liverpool. A petition was presented to the Lord Mayor of Liverpool on the 5th of September, from the passengers demanding compensation and their money back; just recently managed to locate a copy but only a partial list of the signatories. So these are the names of some of the passengers who left the ship, without receiving compensation or their passage fare refunded.
We know about thirty of them went on the steamship Sarah Sands on the 15th of September, the rest of them may have taken the cheaper option of a sailing ship or decided to wait for spring; but they did have jobs waiting for them on the Quebec railway infrastructure.
It looks like they were mainly Scottish and English tradesman. I have removed from the list all the signatories who went on the second voyage, many of them perishing in the shipwreck.
Surnames seemed to have been more fluid at that time, some of them seem suspect.
I am not really looking for any feedback from this post, just hoping it may be of some use. After all the wonderful help I have received from roots chat Canadians with this project; I feel its the least I can do

Best regards Allan
