THE NATAL SETTLER-AGENT - BY DR. JOHN CLARK. The Career Of John Moreland, agent for the Byrne emigration scheme of 1849-51. 'EDWARD': Described by Byrne as 'a splendid new ship of 1000 tons burthen' .... capable of accommodating with ease and comfort her 250 emigrants, the barque Edward sailed from Gravesend on 9 January 1850, and after a good passage arrived safely on 24 March. The Colonial Land & Emigration Commissioners were reputed to have withheld sailing orders because the ship was too large to enter the harbour of Durban (South Africa).
I would like to add or have added this ship list space/profile of which I can add the ship list info etc. Not sure if I can add a list myself, or where I can add a ship list myself ?. Thanks - Tom.
