'The Mares have come out in charge of Mr David Adams of Aucheneraig, Dumbartonshire.'   I can just see Clydesdales being in charge ....

Agh .... and of course 'Supercargo' not often well documented on passenger lists, as they were accommodated in stalls WITH the animals...

They were “shipped” by Mr. Adams. He wasn’t onboard.
2 clydesdales and their 2 foals - more than 1 man needed to managed them during the voyage?

Being a ploughman, James would be familiar with working and handling clydesdales.

I believe so. :)
That would explain why his name appears at the bottom of the passenger list without any additional detail. The other person,(Sutherland) name in pencil below James, may have also been travelling with livestock - the race horses?

I am still constructing  those images of the Clydesdales in charge.  Newspapers would never get important details like that W R O N G  :P  :P  :P

 :)  ADD

Its just the wording !   so back in the early 1800s, NSW expression when land grants were being made and prices were being set .... the price would be recorded as UPSET price....  as in 21st century wording upset would be written as set up.   

JM  ;D

Cannot find any details of the farm in Laura.
Information about Laura here from Prof. Google
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura,_South_Australia

I had no luck finding the name of the farm. Others with more knowledge of South Australia may have more success.

This link here might be a useful contact for more information on the location of the farm.
