Convict Ship Heber: arrived Sydney Australia July 1837

Convict Ship Heber: arrived Sydney Australia July 1837

Classification: Immigration
Surnames: Hardman
Looking for information on the Convict Ship "Heber" which said from Dublin March 1837, arriving in Sydney 11 July 1837.

Looking particularly for
an image of the ship
what type of ship it was (barque, schooner, tall ship etc)
crew, military & passenger listings (not convict listing)

I do know that the 80th Staffordshire was on board, but I'd like to know if the relevant soldiers names were recorded.
I also know that there were a number of free passengers on board, newspaper reports list a couple of (presumably) high profile names, but also make mention of 6 soldiers wives and children.
It is the soldiers, their wives and children I am particularly interested in, as I am looking for a Sgt Mjr Abel Hardman, his wife Mary and their two young daughters Hannah & Sarah.

If anyone is able to help with any of these I would be most grateful.

Thanks

I've just come across a listing in the UK National archives of the Surgeon's journal for this voyage ( see link below). I've just requested a quote for a copy.
Have you found any additional information on the Heber yourself?

No, I've found nothing on the Heber in relation to my query here.
I'm even having trouble locating the musters relating to my soldier, but at least I know that some of them still exist on microfilm, but no image of the Heber, and no soldier or passenger manifest (yet)
