"Walvisch" passenger ship to South Australia 1853

Journal by CelesteKlose

From hospital records I have discovered that ancestors with the names BERESFORD, FOWLER / TAYLOR (need to find and check those notes for details) came to South Australia in 1853 on the ship "Walwich / Walvisch". Reading an earlier posting on this subject. It seems those passenger lists were destroyed in a fire. However, from the Passengers In History website, which is an amalgamation of information from SA Maritime Museum, newspaper shipping intelligence articles and crowd sourcing (http://passengersinhistory.sa.gov.au) the ship came to South Australia 3 times, see below. Has anyone found any further additions to these passenger lists? I'm looking for information about William BERESFORD / BERRESFORD and Sarah nee FOWLER / TAYLOR who were married in North Adelaide on 28/2/1853 and are the parents of Charlotte nee BERESFORD who married Thomas David ALLEN on 19/9/1877 in Adelaide.
