Sweet home was owned any operated by the Robertson family an uncle of James cordiner

He must just have gone as far as Aberdeen with Sweet Home, as the ship left Aberdeen for Peterhead on the 31st March and arrived in Dundee from Peterhead with a cargo of manure on 2nd April.

The cost of a single ticket between Peterhead and Aberdeen was 1/6d (return 2/6d).
The cost of a single ticket between Peterhead and Leith was 5/- (7/6d return).

James Cordiner must have travelled from Aberdeen to Middlesbrough on another vessel or perhaps by rail. I'll see if there are any vessels arriving at Middlesbrough from Aberdeen.

The report in the Aberdeen Weekly news gives James's tee-name - "son of Mr James Cordiner ("Bottles"), Port Henry Road, Peterhead."

There are no ships coming directly from Aberdeen to Middlesbrough in the time frame, but he may have changed vessels en route or gone in part by road or rail. The "Tay" arrived at Middlesbrough from Newcastle on 31st March and sailed for Aberdeen on 3rd April, but there is no way of knowing if James was on it.
