Thanks Amanda.

I have no occupation for Peter and age is a bit out so not sure.

If death reg is correct parents are John and Harriet.

Yes, I thought of England also. I'll see if I can find port of origin for the vessel.

From Liverpool 17 June 1852. 500 imigrants. :eek:

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957) - Thursday 16 September 185 p.4
Arrived
September 15.–Europa, ship, 1099 tons, Hamilton
Oliver, commander, from Liverpool June 17th,
with five hundred Government emigrants. James
Barlas, Esq. Surgeon Superintendent. O. Browne
& Co., agents.

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1957) - Thursday 16 September 1852 p.4
The Europa is a vessel well adapted for carrying
a living freight similar to her present one having
lofty and roomy 'tween decks, and she is by no means a
dull sailer. She has on board somewhere about five
hundred Government emigrants from Liverpool, all
in good health, only eight deaths (infants) took
place during the period of her voyage, and seven
births. The classification of the Emigrants as nearly
as could be ascertained, is as follows:–
91 married men
92 married women
45 single men
67 single women
102 boys under fourteen
77 girls under fourteen
10 boys under one year
9 girls under one year
493
Of these–three hundred and thirty-one are Scotch
sixty-three English, and ninety-nine Irish. The
Hibernia left Liverpool for this Port the same day
as the Europa, and the Waratah a week previous.
The cargo of the Europa, principally coals, is for
Bombay, her future destination.

I checked too Amanda using no given name 1847 - 1850.

I'm having connection problems with several sites including this one.
