Just posting this in case anyone has any use for this info for 1842 from the Glasgow University Library.
The entries in the Herald for these two ships only consist of a few
sentences, and in fact the 'Tiger' was sailing to New York on 4th May, not
to Quebec as we thought previously. Here's the text for the 'Blonde' entry:
'EMIGRATION TO CANADA
AT GLASGOW, FOR QUEBEC AND MONTREAL
The very fine new ship BLONDE, 676 tones register, ANDREW CRAWFORD,
Commander, will sail pointedly on the 10th May.
This Vessel has seven feet clear betwixt decks, and is an admirable
conveyance for persons about to emigrate; the Captain is well acquainted
with the navigation of the Gulph and River St. Lawrence.
Goods will be taken at the usual rates of freight; and, should the Vessel
not proceed to Montreal, will be forwarded at Ship's expense and Shippers'
For freight or passage, application may be made to Alexander Allan, Esq.,
Greenock; or here, to
87, Union Street.
Glasgow 11th April, 1842'
This appears in a number of issues of the Herald from the 11th of April
