Looking for Grix in England before they Immigrated from Plymouth to Australia , on board the immigrant ship Nelson 31 Jul 1848

Arrived in Point Henry Geelong 11 Nov 1848
Age in Ships records is 55 Years
Refer Public Records for this ship & Dates
Ship Nelson Report for the board of Inspection
Melbourne Nov. 28th 1848

The ships dispersal list of immigrants contains many names but the Grix family occupy the following numbers, but are all listed in family groups, this why the numbers appear to jump and leave gaps.

Also some of the headings of the columns are difficult to read therefore I can only surmise what they read by looking at the data recorded further down which appears to be the sex and age of the person listed.
