Herbie, to add a bit to what Marj has posted, there were TWO Amazons
sailing to St. John in 1847. The ship Amazon, Captain Pearson, sailed from
Hull, and arrived May 5th. The bark Amazon, Captain Hays, departed
Liverpool April 23rd and arrived at St. John on May 25th with passengers.

Our June newspapers have no mention of an "Amazon" so I think the May 25th
one is yours. The deaths of the bark Amazon passengers in the quarantine
hospital are listed in the July newspapers.
