SWAN, Stephen and James from UK 1820, JENSEN, Elizabeth SCANDINAVIAN 1885

Looking for my SWAN ancestors from U K, I think?
My great, great grand dad (STEPHEN SWAN aged 21, born 1820 and his brother JAMES SWAN, 18,born 1822) IMIGRATED to New Zealand on the Ship LORD WILLIAM BENTINCK, which left LONDON JANUARY 8TH 1841 and arrived in Wellington New Zealand 19th May 1841.I am fairly confident this info is correct. Hope you can help.
Also please ancestry of my great, great Grand mother SARAH ANN FRANCIS was on the same SHIP, born 1830 U K I think?

Also my Scandinavian ancestry JENSEN on my Grand Mothers side ELIZABETH born 1885, not sure where she was born?
Or how she or her Jensen family arrived in New Zealand.
Hope you can help make this family tree.
