ROYAL DANE passengers 1865 to Great Keppel Bay
« on: Sunday 24 February 19 23:15 GMT (UK) »
We have been trying for years to obtain the Shipping list for the “Royal Dane” that our Ancestors William and Elizabeth LAWLOR emigrated to Australia on without any luck, but we recently found some Parliamentary Tabled Papers that had not been previously digitised and put online.
There are 33 pages of a report presented to Parliament on the 5th September 1865, including statements from each passenger mentioned, and referring to complaints etc. mainly against the Medical attendant onboard.

Below is a list of 16 names mentioned in the document, and as far as we know they were all steerage passengers and never listed anywhere before.
We hope that these names will confirm for some families that their relatives did come out on the Royal Dane.

Ellen POOLE
James CONNOULTY
Bridget TEVLIN (TEVLISS?)
Maurice REEDY
Charles PRIDE
John AHERN
John KILLINGLY
Alfred MORGAN
Joseph EDWARDS
Anna EDWARDS (Matron)
Caroline ABBY (Sister)
Frances CARTLEDGE
Isabella SHUTTLEWORTH
Charles SHUTTLEWORTH
Johnson SHUTTLEWORTH
Mrs. GREEN

The Captain was Lewis DAVIES and the Doctor was Dr. HODGKINSON (These names were previously known).
They have now released and digitised this document,
“The Immigration Board Report : Proceedings and evidence with reference to the vessel 'Royal Dane' (Tabled 05/09/1865)

Thank you Wivenhoe.  I didn't notice that when I copied and pasted the website into the message but I have corrected that now.
