Thanks gibbo.

That site has been down for about 12 days.

You can get into parts of the site via the archive searcher but not by the index.

NSW Records Index is back up and they have changed it. Now it's harder to find the one you want.

No sign of Edward senior arriving assisted or unassisted to NSW as LIST or LEIST

Ok maybe not then as there are several ships by that name.
