How wonderful to have this information! Bluestang, we are related! Your great grandma was Beatrice ( I knew of her as Auntie Triss), and my grandma was Mahara Maude! Maud's husband Alex. died of stomach cancer in Sept, 1973. It was a huge loss to us all - I was 20 yrs at the time.
I would love to correspond with you -if you would like to, please email me at [email protected] -
Cheers -

thank you Jenny,
here is the passenger list of the British Empire
Sailed from London 15 May 1864 - arrived in Lyttelton 6 Sep 1864
At the time of her arrival in Lyttleton, British Empire was the largest ship to enter the port. On board she had 33 cabin passengers and 366 immigrants. She was a vessel dogged by bad luck. While being towed down the river from Bristol, her bow stuck on a projecting part of the bank. The river was tidal and the tide in this instance was running out very fast. It swung the stern of the ship around until it caught the opposite bank, leaving British Empire high-and-dry. In this position several lighters and small vessels were actually able to sail under her. Understandably considerable strain was placed on the ship and when she was refloated repairs were required. She was eventually wrecked along with many other vessels during a tidal wave at St Thomas in the West Indies White Wings - Sir Henry Brett

Benjamin aged 30 - Somersetshire - Labourer
Sarah aged 24
Albert aged 4
Rosine aged 2
Hennrietta aged 2 months (died on board 22 June 1864)
