Source of Information

The above list is found in two books:"Handbook of Irish Genealogy",
Heraldic Artists Ltd., Dublin, 1973, page 113 and; "Ship Passenger Lists, vol. I, National and New England (1600-1825)", Carl Boyer III, Newhall, California, 1977, page 24.

The name Agnus Cameron is spelled Agnes in the "Handbook of Irish Genealogy".

Discussion of Voyage and Ship

The "New York Evening Post" for Wednesday, 14 September 1803, lists theship "Wilmington", Woodward, master, from Belfast, in quarantine, with"some linen and 45 passengers". The difference in passenger numbers can probably be explained by the fact that the newspaper count includes children, including infants, whereas the departure list that you quote (and which I have not seen) probably does not.

There is no arrival list, as ship captains were not required to submit them to U.S. Customs authorities until 1820 (Act of 1819).
I am unable to identify the vessel with any certainty. "Lloyd's Register" for 1800 contains a reference to a ship "Wilmington", built in Philadelphia about 1791 (she was in her 10th year in 1800), but her master is given as R. Shield, and her tonnage as 264.
