Gail, from my reading of this it looks like she is a trading vessle, rather than
a specific ship for Immigrants, and I think your Mr Frederick John Simpson,
could easily have been a passenger, as they don't list them unfortunately,
but I would suspect that he picked it up from other parts of Australia, it could
have been from Swan River, as thats where she came from on the 7th of
December, 1848, ( I dont know where Swan River is, Tasmania?)...
he probably migrated there on another Ship....
It's all good fun....
