Migrant ships to Western Australia 1829-1889
Free passengers, troops, pensioner guards and warders travelling on convict vessels and troopships were not usually named. They are being tracked down by working through alternative colonial and military records. Data has been gathered from the Battye Library's 'Ships Index', the 'Bicentennial Dictionary of Western Australians', F.H. Broomhall's 'The Veterans', Fremantle 'Harbour Master Reports' and colonial nnewspaper's 'Shipping Intelligence' columns.
