The Swan River Harbour Master's report said she carried 17 cabin passengers and another 79 in steerage. Another list attached to the Lands and Surveys Department's files shed more light on the identity of the passengers while the Swan River Settlement's colonial returns for February 28 and March 30, 1831 almost completed the picture.
