Hi Carolyn:

There is the Miramar Index to powered (ie steam, motor) ships:

or via the website of the late Jeremy Lowe, which has Maritime items
and the local history of Thorndon, Wellington:

And the Mariners Index includes some sailing ships post-1876:

But the "Adampt" of pre-1874 is unfortunately too early!

Yours, John Wilson (Wellington)
