I do not find this ship (and Category): Sirocco 1863

+3 votes
I think there were two Siroccos in 1864 which came to NSW but none in 1863. See https://www.records.nsw.gov.au/archives/collections-and-research/guides-and-indexes/assisted-immigrants-digital-shipping-lists The 1863 ship currently contains a Shearer family so I tried looking for them but did not resolve it quickly.

If I make a mistake here then my apologies, but it seemed better to note this while I continue working

Voyages are generally dated from the Year they departed so the first arrival for Sirocco would have departed in 1863.

* Memorial University of Newfoundland - The Maritime History Archive collects and preserves documents relating to the history of maritime activities in Newfoundland and Labrador and throughout the North Atlantic world.  The Maritime History Archive holds approximately 75 percent of the surviving crew lists (also called crew agreements) and official log books of British registered vessels for the periods 1857-1942 (predominantly 1863-1938) and 1951-1976. The crew lists and logbooks for voyages terminating in the years 1857-1942 are indexed and can be searched here. The crew agreements for the years 1951-1976 have not been indexed.

Lloyd's Register of Shipping lists two ships with the same name in the 1866 edition, but it's probably the one of 1132 registered tonnage that you're looking for.
