* UPDATE* on - SOPHIA MABEY left behind in W.A.

Journal by ngairedith

On the passenger list of the barque "OLYMPUS" arriving Wellington 20-4-1841 from London, the entry under the MABEY family says that "Sophia 10 years left behind W.A."
PASSENGER LIST for OLYMPUS

Does anyone know what that means ?

I cannot find the OLYMPUS arriving in W.A.
(what I ASSUME to be West Australia) in 1841 to drop her off.

*UPDATE* - Apparently Sophie died during the voyage and was buried at sea 'off the coast of West Africa'

Hi,
I was finding the same thing only.
There is one typo in your text that is noted in a lot of other entries, the word "in" is not in the transcripts of the ship regarding Sophia (Comment on passenger list "Sophia 10 years left behind. W.A.")
I found that the W.A refers to the initials of the person writing. It appears that Sophia became ill and was "left Behind" as to what happen from that point for her, I am still trying to track down.

Regards

Les Kennington (decendent of Sophia)
