In Sydney they settled in Auburn, New South Wales.

I'm having trouble confirming the details of the departure and arrival of 'Charlotte Groom' and its passengers.

Several hits in TROVE after it left Sydney on its way from Newcastle to India. One hit earlier but I can't see the orange highlight and can't find the vessel's name on the page.

The article just goes on for another 3 lines saying about how many vacancies they still have and how much it is.

Not much in the papers on this ship.
