Carlisle Castle missing passenger lists?
« on: Sunday 11 February 18 10:03 GMT (UK) »
Family folk lore has several of the Hudson clan arriving in Sydney from London aboard the Carlisle Castle, most likely between November 1887 and March 1888. Unfortunately I am unable to find a passenger list to confirm this and am hoping that one of the brilliant people on here might be able to point me in the right direction?

Fingers crossed, Jo  :)

Hi Sandra,

Thank you for taking the time to reply, I have checked all the usual online data and haven't had any luck. I'm mainly looking for Charles born 1857.

As far as I can see, the Carlisle Castle did not go to Sydney in 1887/1888.

You can search for the ship on Trove for the 1880s to see years and ports.

Thanks Debra, it definitely went to Melbourne in that time, so maybe fact has been distorted by family over the years
