This is the ship my great great great grandparents Robert and Mary Shepherdson and 5 of their remaining children immigrated to Australia on, their 6th child Mary Florentina was born in May on the journey (registered on the South Australian BMDs) All up they had 12 children until Mary died then Robt remarried and had 5 more.

Good to hear Tracy and I spelt the name correctly. I was a bit worried that I may have spelt some names incorrectly because the print was so dark and very difficult to copy.
Good ole Robert, 17 children. Honestly, I don't know how those women managed.
Imagine being on a barque for 3 months with 5 children.

I know it must have been hectic constantly watching them, would be awful if one fell overboard.
I have added a journal of Robert and his family, I wouldn't have a clue how to link it to anthers post.
