Some of my ancestors came from Liverpool to Melbourne early Jan, arriving 25 March.

Does anyone have any info about a passenger list? I can't seem to find anything.
Thanks

I was under the impression the name of your ancestor was James Baines and you were searching for his arrival at Melbourne 25 Mar 1857. But "James Baines" is the name of the ship arriving at Melbourne at that date.

My mistake ...Anyway, it is on Ancestry - but it is only a typed transcription for each passenger and not the original ships passenger list, and the only information you get is the passenger's name and their age... Can you tell me the name of the passenger you are looking for?

My ancestor on the boat was Holland (Goddard) Smith aged about 20.

All it says is:
Holland Smith aged 20

But he was definitely on the James Baines, arriving 25 Mar 1857 at Melbourne..
-----------------------

I noticed a record for a Holland Smith, who married a Jannet Ewart at Victoria 1863. Reg no: 3907
-----------------------

And a death for a Holland Smith in Victoria.
He was aged 85.
Died 1922.
Father's name William Smith
Mother's name Elizabeth Thompson
Reg no: 4314
