AUSTRALIA HMAS iron?  You must  be joking. 
AUSTRALIA PACKET was registered as AUSTRALASIAN PACKET. 
AUSTRALIAN BQ 306 TONS. ENTRY COMPLETELY WRONG.  The vessel involved was the paddle steam ferry AUSTRALIA and on her voyage from Circular quay to MilsonÆs point which struck a rock and settled Oct. 4, and refloating commenced Oct. 8.   the vessel you list was said to have been at sea whaling since mid 1843 at the beginning of 1845

Just how ANYONE would imagine P&O or any serious consignor would ship bullion Sydney to Melb in 1877 by sail is beyond belief.  Just another unchecked fairytale by someone unable or unwilling to check into anything nautical. 
AVON  mentioned twice probably wood vessel built 1826 Whitby, UK. nd in Australia at least from 1835  and under Joseph Underwood was reported at the whale fishiery in 1839 
AVON  ex paddler, wrecked 1891, salvaged and refitted as lighter by Foster & Minty Sydney and sold to Adelaide SS who reg.

AVON DHU, bq, 390 tons arrival Melbourne August 5, 1857 from Leith, DILGENCE  w sch 26 tons, working on the bay later but arrived from Circular Head August 8 so the accident reported - if it happened - took place  in August sometime

Banks Peninsula, RENAMED Waitangi in 1896 
BANNOCKBURN the rigs I quote are from official records,  rest of presentation from press or others who have not checked, The profusion of vessels this name was because they were chosen by former Scot residents to celebrate famous battle nd probably to also make some form of political statement or their allegiance to the lost cause.

His Brothers was only built in 1831, and first arrived sydney the next year.

BUNGAREE I ps tug, built for Australasian S.N.co, 0 AUSN not formed till 1887 and the BHP steelworks no longer exists.

BUNINYONG. Built for Howard Smith, who formed Australian Steamships in 1913 
BUNYIP  lost 1889 same vessel as second entry

First dredger entry identical with second, and third described as wooden hull, was in fact, the dredger hull 
BUON0 VISTA,   actually reported Bona Vista, q.v, and  there is no call for speculation about the existence of the vessel û it did not exist. 
BURANDA, became NALPA, of Adelaide company not as printed Naipa 
BURKE, scuttled Sept 23, vide register 
BURRA BURRA 122 tons, built 1852, non event  and did not exist a vessel of that name was built in 1854 and arrived for the Melbourne-Pt.Adelaide run in 1855, but being far to slow  was sold to Batavia late 1859 and Pt.Adelaide reg closed 1860

CALEDONIA   seized in 1825 unlikely to be the vessel allegedly lost in 1848,  1848 because == 
Caledonia, sloop, built in 1825, Hobart, was returned to original owners March 1826 not 1836, (as evidenced by contemp. Press retports) having been captured by Duke of York and was last at Dalrymple (Georgetown) when it left for the Ladrones to collect beche de mer, no further record and in no way could it be connected with the unsupported report of 1848.  Dr.Thompson arrived Williamstown Feb 24 1836 in the Brig Caledonia 189 tons, from Launceston registered at the time in Calcutta but trading in Aust from 1834 and sold to Sydney owners in 1839 -- Yet another mishmash of unrelated information gathered by people ready to grab at anything to meet their lack of detailed research. The Thompson vessel being the next entry  on page  138 - The Sydney reg of this vessel closed Nov. 1841, upon trans of reg to London. After calling Pt.Adelaide Mar 16, 1840 dept for sydney and Melb. April 6 arriving sydney april 30 . Left March 13,1841 for London returning from London Jan. 4, 1843, with cargo and passengers, and left for London May 12,   Another case of  confused use of secondary unreliable research reporting.

CLARA  KT 28 TONS BUILT 1872  CASUALTY 1846?

Clara Sayers, I also say wrecked 1872.  where does 82 come from? 
The two CLARENCE  which you say built in the same place, well geography has been altered to suit you if correct, one was built Clarence River  about 300 miles north of Williams river û see any good map. 
CLARENCE  IPS   see Aust Coastal Pass ships, built for Clarence river trade but by time arrived the Gold rush has opened and it was sold  for a very enhanced price for the Bass strait ferry in 1853, and acquired by ASN in 1857 and lengthened in 1862 was under charter to the  Clarence & RIchmond rivers S.N. co when lost 
CLARENCE  double ended drogher and the next entry confused. The drogher was built 1865 the dredger date unknown  and  it was the dredger washed to sea, the fate of the smaller paddler not officially recorded but probably about 1879 when the owners advertised the remains for auction after it had been stranded and refloated in May 1879

CLONMEL  524 GROSS tONNAGE, ORIG BY OLD MEAS 207 was built for the Liverpool-Waterford (Ireland) service hence the Irish name 
CLYDE,  small sloop built Macquarie Harbour VDL 1829 and sold in 1830 and renamed ROBULLA

CONJOLA.  Registered as PADDLE steamer, not screw as you claim 
CONSTANCE  your inability to understand how two similar vessels could be built at the same time with the same name  makes it clear you have no idea of the era , obviously there was a lady of that name, well known in the west, that caused different people to name a vessel in her honour, a not infrequent situation in that era  and possibly both owners or builders  aspired to flater the lady û a not uncommon event. 
CONSTANT last two entries page 195, the same ship û why? 
CONTENT, both the same vessel.  Orig. Melbourne 1852 as 125 tons, remeasured. 1853 - 147tons, B.1842 Greenock,  Melb. Customs always unreliable about fate of vessel, particularly in the 1850s-1860s suffered a clean up mid 1870s and wrote this, and many others off as æmissingÆ because they couldnÆt be bothered to find ou what did happen. 
CONWAY,  W ship  1165 t, left Liverpool June 10 with 428 govt migrants, arrived Melbourne Sept. 15, Capt.w.H.Duiguid 
COOLABAR ,  actually COOLEBAR,  Steel not iron, twin screw ss  479/ 224, B.1911 for North Coast S.N.Co., after many visitudes sold Chine buyers in 1947 and renamed EAST RIVER, but detained by Commonwealth and never left and sunk at her moorings North Stockton Sept. 25, 1949 raised in sections beween April/May 1958  and remains sold to BHP as scrap iron. 
COOLANA   was fired on æ with the gun deckÆ??? strange, perhaps it was the gun ON her deck????

Dawn schooner lost Double Is Point, another entry for the earlier ON 57505 û surely some ref. should be made and all grouped together and the machinery carried, was cargo, not motive power û some people will grab anything to meet their preconceived thoughts û a problem constantly evidenced in this work.

DUNEARN why two almost identical entries same ship same fate??? DUNEDIN STAR . not applicable this book 
DUNKELD,   Nova Scotia, USA û geography very much altered by writers in this book constantly amazed at geographical ignorance

DUNMORE, very confused. W ss built Rock Davis, Blackwall, Brisbane Water,NSW, Lady Jane beach, probably Lady Bay Beach(there is no Lady Jane beach)  the South Coast Quarries were on the south coast of NSW and mainly at Kiama, nothing to dowith or near Tasmania û more wonderful re-arrangement of geography 
DUNNOTTAR CASTLE would be aiming for Cape Horn although the coordinates given could well be wrong although quoted officially 
DUNTROON, was NEVER hmas as a troopship hired by the Army or Commonwealth the RAN considered taking her as either an amc or hospital ship but decided her unreliable record because of unusual type of engines made it unwise. 
DURANBAH S SS on117580  BUILT  Scotland for  G.W.Nicoll, Sydney for Northern rivers trade, who merged with North Coast company, who sold JULY 1922 TO James Patrick & Co, who sold in 1925 to Carpenters who had her re engined as a diesel and presumed to have passed out of existence or CarpenterÆs control by 1936 when replacement constructed. 
DURENBEE  IRON?   No, iron distinctly out of fashion by her time 
DURIS, was steel hulled, not wooden 
DUROUR,  MORE geographic problems, TULAGI, WAS NOT AND IS NOT IN PNG BUT is FORMER  CAPITAL OF SOLOMON Islands, and it had been built as a twin screw motor vessel, but was re engined in 1926 with an elderly steam engine 
DUSTY MILLER,   Shipping arrivals  Roebuck list her as from Launceston to Port Phillip when lost but had suffered bad weather and was windbound in Circular Head until got away and was lost at Port Fairy  25th having left LÆton Oct. 26, Capt.Saunders.-- all the other compilers you quote are incorrect and have not thoroughly checked all available contemporary sources but you do not confirm anything in your comments. I have supplied correct info. 
DUCHESS OF KENT, lost 1895 I give full details which you appear to have missed 
DUCHESS OF KENT, whaler, was never property of Benj.Boyd, but was enrolled Sydney 1843 till 1845 and was then transferred to Calcutta, but it was a whaler so MAY have visited BoydÆs whaling establishment 

EEEEEEEEEE

Eagle 1st entry forbitting>??? 130 tons  mstr p.c.monstrop.The spirits must have been landed because when leaving her cargo was 74 tons of coals 
EAGLE  3rd entry  so much gobbledegook as comment û a popular name with many compilers grabbing information? To suit their needs as is so often shown in this publication. There was no EAGLE, built Sydney 1840 it was built in 1846, but when registered at Geelong, in1862 the registrar mis-read the certificate and wrote 1840 afterward corrected.  When reg. Sydney 1846 27 tons, in 1862 at Geelong 22 tons. Report ashore 1841 û no trace in contm. press, although eagle b.1818 was trading between Circular Head and Melbourne at the time. No ref to Tasmania 1846 anywhere - this vessel stranded Rye June 23, 1882 when owned by F.A.Harris, reg. Melbourne 30/1874  re reg Sept. 1882 by H.J.Wilson,Rye, and was completely lost at Rye Sept. 28, 1882 according to the Age Oct. 2, your mention of Bateson û he refers to Eagle of 1818 as already noted in that entry. Capt Noon of w/bool in charge of many vessels in 1850s but none named Eagle. G.W ColeÆs Eagle, was 124 tons, B.1848 USA and reg.melb March 1852 by cole Sept. 1852 sold to Allison & Knight û all that messy stuff only making use of this book hopeless unless this is clarified. As so often the case the comment only adds to the confjusion. 
EAGLE  124 tons, your next entry was that once owned by G.w.Cole trans to Sydney in 1856 and Cook became owner from Aug.1862 according to her register 
Eagle,  PS, WAS BUILT FOR Hunter River S.N.C., but never made a tug.  Sold 1877 to Summerbell, who operated colliers between Sydney and Newcastle, and possibly then made coal hulk more detail see Aust.Coastal Pass ships. 
Eagle supposed lost Macquarie Island, you again try to offer the Eagle built in USA in 1848 which is almost an impossibility == it arrived in Australia 1852 
EAGLE  built Berrys Bay 1881 was later owned by Robison & Norman and in June 1939 was sold and renamed BALFOUR MATTHEW  and operated for the Kunaurya Mission, via Broome. 
EAGLE tug ON95971 spent many years stationed in Port Adelaide, owners Huddart Parker.  See also later entry including tow from Cape Northumberland û see Steam tugs in South Australia. 
Eagle dredge scuttled December 2 
EAMONT three entries why?? same ship same loss although how Chepstow in Derbyshire or more likely Monmouthshire can suddenly move north to Sunderland leaves a lot to the imagination and while it came to Hobart register in 1840 it was in 1844 when Capt. Lovitt became owner. It came to Hobart from Calcutta reg of 1834, which misled OÆMay and company û and they were very easily misled û witness their publications!!!!!! 
EARL OF DALHOUSIE, why was Irvine queried, It was a well known seaport and shipbuilding centre in Ayrshire Scotland 
Earl of St.Vincent, Capt, Josiah Middleton, arrived August 1826 with prisoners and then fined, left next month for Isle of France 
EARL OF ULVERSTONE,   River Leven, not levensà 
EARL OF WINDSOR, more likely Newport Monmouthshire than anywhere else but not identified in Lloyds 
EAST STAR, ex KURRARA  March 1928 former collier 
EASTERN CITY, I do not say built in USA, it was built in Canada.  And  1800 tons of cargo seems somewhat overmuch for a vessel of the tonnage shown

ECHUNGA, ss owned Australia and employed on the ore trade Whyalla Newcastle, is, according to your entry on its way to Hong Kong when attacked off NSW Coast 1942???????? I am sure the Japs in Hong Kong would have welcomed it but that destination seems unlikely in 1942. It was sold to Hong Kong  shipbreakers in1959 
ECLIPSE 45 tons Port albert 1860. the only vessel that name trading regularly Hobart port albert was schooner 190 tons which not reported as having any incident in 1860 fate unknown but change of masters noted n 1866 
Eclipse wrecked in NZ in 1866 hardly likely to be trading to Port albert and no mention elsewhere and owned at Invercargill, southern NZ Capt.Calder was master in 1861 of the 190 vessel  ON31966 reg. Port Albert folio 2 of 1861 when the owner moved from Tasmania to Gippsland. û another mess due to people ædippingÆ and not reseaching thoroughly.

ECLIPSE  wallaroo river??? no such place 
EDEN, Tss built for Illawarra S.N.co., popular passenger vessel

ELIZA JANE .lost 1888, no vessel named eliza Jane registered in Australia in 1888 apart from small vessel owned in Fremantle 
ELIZA RAMSDEN,  Barclay Curle & Co, well known shipbuilders of Whiteinch,  Glasgow in Lanarkshire. I am frequently amazed at the almost complete lack of geographical knowledge shown in some of the entries  in this publication.

EMMA clipper brig, see vessel 139 tons, loss NZ 1860 built Kingston New Brunswick which is some distance up the St.Johns river from the main city of St.John and your comment it was built at Kingston Island, is a misreading by many, the first misled writer probably meant Kingston IRELAND  because of port of registration was Belfast.  As noted before a terrible confusion by many writers with/about their geography.

Second entry for egelbert, SAN simply a typo for date  otherwise as above 
ENTERPRISE,  re Capt.Farley, an A.Farley was master of an ENTERPRISE, 58 TON, lost at WÆbool in 1850  Farley apparently handing over to Mr.Caught in Melbourne in august 1850 And I did not say Bateman sailed this vessel but he used it. There was NO Enterprise wrecked in 1857 û just another mistake by someone. Capt, Noon was never in charge of anything called enterprise, and throughout 1854 was master of TYNE, on the WÆbl run. In mid 1853 for a few months he had the FREEDOM and no sign of anything to do with an enterprise, But Noon was master of Red Rover, in WÆbool when the enterprise was lost in Sept. 1850 
ENTERPRISE Loney wreck 1881 is identical with entry at foot of page, which was stranded Deal Is, in 1881. 
Enterprise, 1st and second entry about Enterprise ss ashore Murray mouth, same vessel. The vessel at Murray Mouth was- Iss  30g,24n, lengthened 1872 =  36/24  B.sydney 1868. in 1873 acquired by South Aust.Government for work on Roper river NT in connection with overland telegraph  then returned Port Adelaide, employed on Lake Alexandrina briefly till sold for work in Port Adelaide Oct. 1884 to the Adelaide Steam Tug co, see my Steam Tugs of South Australia reg. Closed 1913. 
ENTERPRISE, Iron tsmv, was built in 1887 as Hopper barge PUMBA, WAS CONVERTED into a twin screw gravel barge in 1958 at Brisbane it was owned by Wm.Collin & Co., according advice to me by former manger Collin & Co.

ERNEST REYER, the State of Oregon is in USA so why your comment??? 
ERRINGHI, scuttled 1951 see my Scuttled & Abandoned ships  But why in shipwreck ency?supose might b called an incident??? 
ESCORT tug, builders name GREEN, see typo.   As corrected in next, almost identical entry???  And while the number of vessels registered in London was usually high I think eleven hundred odd rather a high folio nr, especially when everywhere else it is shown as eleven!!! 
ESSEX  I ss b.1880 was owned by Collin & Co for many years, but see also my History of Port of Maryborough\ 
ESSINGTON, no trace of anything called ESSENDON registered or reported  in the 1850s 
ESTER built 1886, reg. Hobart Ester Sailing Ship Co, then owned by Victorian Lighterage from 1912, ex reg. Hobart in 1910 converted to lighter in 1912   a very involved and unclear entry 
ESTHER, lost Hawke river, I was unable to establish how SAN found that information as it does not appear on the register and they were unable to explain however the vessel was last seen in a disabled condition off Broken bay into which the HAWKESBURY river flows which may explain the circumstances 
ESTHER   built 1864 two entries the same vessel 
ESTHER bottom pg 298, actually ESTER which has already been mutilated earlier  Harry OÆ\May got the owner right but spelt the shipÆs name wrong And your inane comments about what it should be just another thoughtless comment, you could have easily settled the matter with a little thought or checking û throught there is constant evidence of thoughtless haste 
ESTHER MARIA, part owner named BOOKS, NOT Brooks 
ETHEL B. 1870, the three entries you list were all for the same vessel,  but the last owner did not advise Registrar of damage or loss and the entry closed 1909 
ETHEL B.T.  I suggest you misunderstand the wording of notice to mariners and the vessel was lost near the western entrance etc.ec 
ETHEL JACKSON, Bull completely wrong -  she filled and sunk in ross river but raised and made into a hulk

EUROKA, 51 tons, WHICH I INCORRECTLY SHOW AS EUREKA ON PREVIOUS PAgE 
Euroka paddler confirm built from steel plate 
EUROPA,  when copying I omitted NS after Hants, which of course means nova scotia. But no vessel could be registered at Nova scotia, which is a province and to register a vessel it would have to be home ported somewhere and in 1865 it was formerly registered in Port Adelaide  folio 9 of 1864.  much confusion  When en rolled Pt.Adelaide the previous register was London. 
EUROPE, no vessel this name listed as coming or going to Melb/WÆtown in 1856. There was a  3m ship this name 557 tons which arrived 1853 and was sold in 1855  to  james Graham and Fred. Lamb and reg  as folio 85 of 1855, that became a hulk in 1858 officially although it could have been hulked  in 1855 and when sold to Throckmorton in 1858 mentioned as hulk which could fit, although no record of capt. 
EURYNOME,    why two identical entires????? 
EUTERPE  missing. Doubtful, the vessel identified, by tonnage was not built Isle of Man, but in Sunderland, and Eden Holme built in 1875 had a much longer life. 
EVA  3rd entry page  304, typo on date but third line shows 1987? What should it be? 
EVA   W ss  ON74679 B. 1876 Williamstown. did not go to Spencer Gulf SS or the Adelaide SS ..  see my Steam tugs of S.A. , because it was sold to South Australian  S S co which in turn went to various steam launch companies, and eventually Adelaide steam Tug co etc., etc., 
EVA  steamer lost  Western port, was probably W screw steamer built Rock Davis 1873 and sold to Melbourne Feb.1876 owner  F.Burt, the original eng, removed late 1876, operated as sail until new engine installed in 1878 after returned to Sydney, in March 1876 the Melbourne register records sale from Mr.Burt to W.R.Carter. so only a stranding,apparently 
EVA 41 tons, you say possibly lost -= I give partics from Custom register that confirms this although you do not mention it 
EVA lost  Cossack Creek, a second entry  see four above this one 
EVA LYNCH, when built? `1884???? 
EVELYN, 61 tons, wrecked in 1890 in qld, now wrecked in Port Davey TAS the next year???? 
EVERGREEN, you say I list it lost in 1914, but I do NOT, I say she vanished mid 1906 but the register was closed in 1914, with disappeared 1906 
EWALD,   Hanover was not in Germany when this vessel built, but a principality of the Holy Roman Empire, if you wish to be precise, but  you could say a German principality if you prefer, but it was NOT part of the state of Germany which at that time did NOT EXIST! 
EWBANK,  barge rig, similar to ketch, but hardly a schooner, however  probably by this a simple barge to be towed 
Excelsior PG, 307 BUILT MELBOURNE 1878, CORRECTLY ENTERED PREVIOUS PAGE AS HULK  AT Melbourne in 1878  but built in 1855!!!!!!!!! 
EXCELSIOR SS OF 1882   WAS HULKED 1919 AND ONLY 1929 TRANSFERED TO Victorian Lighterage 
EXCELSIOR  ss  B.1897 , and sold in 1933 to S.A.Harbors board and converted into a coal hulk. Was built for Northern NSW rivers trade, but sold French in 1902, but returns to Sydney reg in 1904 for S.A.coastal trades. 
EXCELSIOR, which you now enter as a dummy barge, was extensively covered above as a screw steamer!  Built 1897!!!!!!!!!!! 
EXCHANGE 184 , lost sydney, you have mutilated the story and used the man CowellÆs name as a place, which is is not, Mr.Cowell came from the Water Police at Camp Cove û typesetting seems to be getting worse 
Ps EXPERIMENT OF 1832 was not intended as a Parramatta ferry but to work on the tributaries of the Hunter river to bring cargo to the Morpeth-sydney steamers. And it was built by messrs Singleton & Yeomans.  And in April 1833 was sold to Edye Manning who had an engine installed for use as a Parramatta ferry. Bris paper  Feb. 26, 1848 said sunk, raised, april 22 1848 resumes trips to Ipswich   and the same Brisbane paper says she made her last trip to Ipswich  Sept. 29, 1849, and the hull was demolished, and probably parts re-used by Taylor Winship the shipbuilder. but all that waffle about being left in the river is stupid, how on ever could they continue using the riverside berth with such a large lump of rubbish near the wharf? The SMH herald comment was about it being withdrawn 
EXPERT  68 tons, two identical entries, but the stranding in 1884 was just that, her register was closed in1889 with æsold to Natives of JavaÆ Oct 1889 when registered at Melbourne in 1876 it was by a resident of South Australia who was owner/master 
EXPRESS  2nd entry deals with same vessel as  immy before 
EXPRESS Iss  B.1853 Hull, brought to Australia by Howard Smith arriving July 1854. and placed upon the Geelong-Melbourne route. Reg.London in March 1859 re-reg Melbourne by Smith & Skinner, and retained on the geelong route in aug. 1861 Howard Smith sells his interest to the former agent at Geelong, Mr.Parker, who many years after became a partner of the Huddarts,  In nov. 1874 the vessel was sold to New Zealand The vessel was NEVER owned by Huddart,parker & Co.   see my history of that Company. I do not know where DG got his information but it all up that well known creek.but then GregoryÆs information has always been suspect. 
EXPRESS  3 below first, is the same ship with still very incorrect information which I correct above.  The vessel never traded for Huddart,Parker & Co, to Geelong and this pile of rubbish sends her to New Zealand in 1860 but involved in things on the bay in 1864 and 1868????? û there has certainly been a lot of fairy tales, or guesswork in the so-called ÆhistoryÆ of this vessel 

FFFFFFFF 

FAILFORD, my typo on is 106176   newspaper ref in yours with typo & masterÆs name probably typo 
FAIR JANE, no contemporary reference

FANNY arrived Sydney 1835, lost in New Zealand 1836 
FANNY 27 tons, B.1826 was believed missing on voyage to Hobart, but only delayed, as I mention in loss reported in 1844, 
The vessel FANNY owned by Henty was regularly in the Launceston-West australia trade in the 1830s and is probably the vessel Henderson cannot locate  and your next Entry gets the confusion even more involved but HentyÆs Fanny was the one lost in 1844 
Fanny  YOU 238 TNS, ACTUALLY WAS 23 TONS, SEE MY LOSS IN SOUTH AUST. 1838, WHICH IS FOR THIS VESSEL. And is covered by your next entry as well 
FANNY cuter 20, tries to take in the former HentyÆs cutter built in 1826 and your comments only confuse the issue.  The vessel lost on Coorong was not salvaged, and Hentys continue to sail the 1826 vessel between Tasmania and Fremantle until it was lost or shortly before although it undoubtedly worked wherever someone paid for it to do so. When  first registered the tonnage was shown as  27 & 8/94th tons  in 1834 26 & 91/94th tons  and as press said she was owned by Messrs Fisher when Lost it is likely Hentys had sold her and the facts not recorded 
I obtained the registrations from England as the Launceston files have been lost and Henderson busily misread, or misunderstood them as my copies were from the actual custom house files, not the Board of TradeÆs assumptive files this may explain the supposed differences 
FANNY claims of schooner and or lighters in Williamstown, etc in 1850s, unsupported by factual reports, although one or two vessels named Fanny in port may have been used as a lighter. 
FANNY LOST 1853 NEWCASTLE, ON PGE315. COVERED IN GREATER DETAIL PAGE 314 SEE BRIG 223 ETC. 
Fanny 184 TONS, REPEATED TWO ENTRIES LATER WITH MORE DETAIL ABOUT AN EARLIER ATTACK MENTIONED IN MY LOSS REPORT 
Fanny Campbell, lost in the Banks group which I have previously explained in a group north of Vanuatu 
FANTOME  HMS dismantled in 1841, but  performing work in the 1850s??? There was no RN warship this name dismantled in 1841 there was one sold out in 1864 which possibly is your vessel that was =  brig-sloop 483 tons builder meas.  Commissioned at Chatham Dockyard in 1839 which had 12  32 pounder cannons, among other armament. 
You continually place Cochin in China, which it is was not 
FAVOUR OF 1864, as I mention is in error for loss in 1880  the two entries between are complete errors 
FAVOURITE of 1808 in sydney arrived  Nov. 11, was described as an American Brig from the Feejees, but aboard was Mr.Kable who was returning from China via Penang, having sold a vessel at Canton. Etc. Departed Dec for Fejees and China. 
FAVOURITE MISSING in 1852, search was by HMS Acheron paddle steam sloop b1838 and sold out of RN at Sydney in 1855 my spelling of favourite from register 
FAVOIURITE 15 TONS,LOST UNKNOWN, AND YOU HAVE CONFUSED THINGS BY SUGESTING IT WAS LOST  NR CAPE HOWE, WHICH, OF COURSE, WAS THE OTHER VESSEL THIS NAME. And repeat the loss of the 96 tons vessel again, having given full treatment page before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
FAVOURITE AND STORY ABOUT San Francisco  WHERE DID facts COME FROM AND WHY NO REFERENCE TO ARRIVAL FROM Australia û all from unsourced secondary source? but is it the next entry????? 
FAVORITE (VIDE PRESS), ASHORE Swan island was inward from Rarotonga   when touched ground as Swan Point is identical with the vessel ashore Kangaroo Island. and probably only touched the ground, as she berthed in Melbourne the next day 
FAVOURITE MISSING IN 1852, YOUR NEXT ENTRY GIVES WRONG INFORMATIN BUT IS THE SAME . LOSS -  THE VESSEL WAS Melbourne-Sydney not Hobart 
The next entry also a duplication, for loss at or near Tweed river 
FAWKNER  Melbourne Harbour Trust, is not a æcoÆ but a trust and it was scuttled May  20, 1935 
FEAR NOT, folio 22 of 1875 confirmed 
FEARLESS  blackbirder, is the vessel shown immediately above, as lost 1902. 
FEARLESS  wooden tug,  broken up in 1952, and so your report of work in 1957 refers to the steel vessel of same name built 1945 in USA and acq. For Brisbane in 1954. 
FEARLESS 1916 fo SAN we tried but unable to locate any reference, 
FEDLAMA  two identical entries and second with unnecessary inane comment 
FELIX  schooner 25   arrived Sydney Oct. 1838   see my full report about arrival and loss 
FENELLA  ps see Aust Coastal Passenger ships,  Arrived Melbourne Feb. 20, 1855 for sale and began Melbourne-Portland trade later Melbourne-Pt.Albert, Melb-Hbt, before being acquired by Hunter River NEW S.N.Co, not the Hunter River Company and sold to Hong Kong in 1861 
FERGUSON,  a wonderful conjuring trick. You are adamant lost in April 1840 when you quote a Sydney Herald note for Jan.31 1841, but the same vessel the same master (Capt.Virtue) arrived in Port Phillip Jan.15,1841 from London with migrants then moves to sydney sailing Feb.6, arrives in Sydney February 19, 1841, and departed April 14,  with subsequent wreck reports as I list, so the item in January 1841, if it did appear was about something else. Which I did not find. and I suspect your report of Jan. 31, should be July 31  which I find my notes reading very closely to the words you give for January, although the Jan. report was in 1842 ha ha??? It would seem, someone in your weird and wonderful collection of misinformation has misread their own notes and his/her waffle has been collected by many other dippers into secondary sources. The ship had been visiting Sydney since 1829 making the last call before 1841 in 1839 
FERNDALE . last two entries this name the same ship. 
FERMOUNT,  the AVON,  WAS NOT COMPLETELY DESTROYED BUT LATER SALVAGED AND MADE A LIGHTER 
Ferret WAS never OWNED BY Mt.Gambier SS Co, but was acquired by Wm.Whinam, who was in opposition to Mt.Gambier Company û see Aust.Coastal Pass Ships.Official number wrong û see my book for correct figures, which I have double checked and in 1918  by some refitting of accommodation  gross tonnage now 460 g. employed  in Western Australia and on qld coast before  taking up the Port Lincoln-Pt Adelaide run 
FIDES built 1857 not 37, and again you make things happen out of sequence.   The vessel was lost May 1860 but you have it doing so in 1859 having left London January 1860  all very confusing  and beyond belief 
FIDES of 1919 four mast aux. sch, dismasted on the queensland coast. She arrived in Pt.Adelaide Dec. 1928. the owner had hoped to operate her in the coastal trades but could not obtain any charters due to the depression. 
FIDRA, you only give the nett tonnage 
FIFESHIRE, lost Arrow Reef, you could mention it was near Nelson, inNew Zealand. 
FIONA  twin screw steamer stranded  in 1860s, no such animal ever registered or in insurance registers 
FIONA . in 1940 = S ss b.1933 fourth this name for CSR sold Hong Kong august  1958 2269g orig 2198 
FIRE QUEEN was  61 tons, register closed æbroken up about 1894Æ no report of wreck,   supposedly abandoned. 
FIRE QUEEN, 2nd, fire float built 1926, assisted at a fire in 1910????????? The 1926 was twin screw motor vessel 
FIRE FLY, b.1837 you have again supplied an immense amount of useless guess work. There is no evidence it came from England in frame,as it was built by Sydney shipbuilder see also my Paddle Steamers of Australia & New Zealand Mr.Russel built in 1837  and was first employed on the Parramatta river according to the Sydney Gazette of  Nov., 1837,  Sydney Gazette  June 24, 1838 æhas been sold by Mr.Manning to Capt.Brown,(capt. of Denmark Hill), and will be taken to Melbourne by Denmark Hill which sails tomorrowà.the Denmark Hill only left in september  The Port Phillip Patriot  Nov. 18, 1839 reported it was operating between Melbourne and Williamstown, twice daily, the same paper in December carried a report by someone who visited Williamstown by this steamer who said it was misnamed and should be called æSLOTHÆ  It was never registered and there are various reports of the engine being removed for other purposes, and as better steamers appeared in 1840/1 it was obviously  found wanting. 
FIRE FLY, tender was = W ss 15g/8n B. for use on the Yarra but taken to Echuca in 1864 for Murray river work, sold to S.A.Govt early 1867 for use on the Cadell NT exploration. Steamed to Newcastle, via ports, Cadell simply reported her lost in August 
FITZJAMES  BUILT 1852,  ARRIVED Melbourne July 15, 1866 in distress and surveyed and condemned, auctioned she was purchased with the intention of repairing it, but this found to be impossible and she was placed on the bank. In 1876 was sold to the S.A.Govt for use as a quarantine hulk in Port Adelaide and was towed there by ss Woonona arriving May 31,1876 and moored off the Semaphore, and from time to time employed in various duties, one as boys reformatory. She was broken up in 1892 
FITZROY  S ss b. 1883 for Australasian S.N.c.   thence to AUSN. 
FITZROY   S ss b.1912 owners were LANGLEY BROS S.S.CO, NOT  North Coast company 
FIVE ISLANDS,  there have been NO Manly ferries named KANIMBLA so supposedly the incident featured the Sydney Ferry co vessel that name built 1909 
FLASH, iron lost 1853 always a schooner in press, Loney probably confused with the Brig rigged vessel of Melbourne in use same time.  And vessel definitely from Hobart, having left Geelong late Nov for trip to Hobart town 
FLEETWING,  W ss, ON73321,  31g/21n, reg.sydney 94 of 1875, built 1874 Hardman,  Nowra,NSW.,  SMH Nov. 24,1874 ônew stream yacht for MR.J.C.Lloyd, launched yesterdayÆ Argus Feb. 1877 arrived yesterday is a lighter and or ferry boat to carry 125 people. Jan. 1880 to John Huntley,  Sept. 1881 Andrew Lyell, miner of Macquarie Harbour Oct. 1883  returns to sydney reg. 
FLEETWING,  lost Queensland was from Townsville for  south so Cape Cleveland very relevant. 
FLENSBORG words describing damage unintelligible û he wad here??????????// 
FLINDERS 948 T, CHARTERED BY MciLWRAITH IN 1893 NOT 1890 and Mr.McIlwraith sold to his brotherÆs company.  THE MINOR INCIDENT OF Henderson involved the other ss Flinders 498 tons and in 1888 owned by Adelaide SS co.,to be clear about these ships see my Australian Coastal pass Ships for full details 
FLORA 130 tons, was built AT Lea Wharf, not by 
FLORA  lost Tasmania,  register said north east coast 
FLORA   said to be lost in 1902 at Cossack. I have  harbour board, records, Battye Library files and other refs which do NOT mention this vessel so if it existed it was an unregistered very small craft 
FLORA MACDONALD, built on the Tamar, why listed???
FLORENCE IRVING,  Australasian SN Co but ordered by a director  for Clarence & Richmond Rivers S.N.Co. but never trans to them and sold by bankrupt estate of director to ASN see also Aust.Coastal Pass Ships 
FLORENCE MAUD, ISS TUG  BUILT FOR Victoria Sugar Company, who sold to CSR  in 1887, used to tow barges and lighters  to and from the sugar works 
FLORENCE MAUD, ketch, you say lengthened then give original measurements, new ones were =  67.5 x 15.2 x 5.4 35 tons. Loney and Paterson give original dimensions before she was altered in 1888 
FLOWER OF YARROW ON20428 
FLY HMS  brig sloop  387t  b 1813 sold out  may 1828 at Bombay. At Sydney from Madras  aug 1826 - left for Madras via Hobart Town Feb. 1827 so it was not lost off Sydney heads in 1827 although that is probably just bad editing, and it was the Perseverance  that was lost  although  I cannot confirm that either. 
FLY HMS  485t b. Pembroke dock 1831  made coal hulk in 1855  first in Australia 1842, in Torres Strait 1844 
FLYING CHILDERS lost 1877 captain was probably named LUCAS, not as you show 
FLYING CLOUD  LOST 1870  Another stupid comment about why she was lost where she was û she was on her way from Port Adelaide to Melbourne, having put into Port Adelaide for orders û these unnecessary and often very stupid comments do nothing to enhance the reputation of the editor or the publication. I clearly said how it happened in my book and I do not know how any ship can get from Pt.Adelaide to Melbourne without passing cape Banks and Northumberland 
FLYING DOE, nothing like that ever registered and no other reference 
FLYING DRAGON, that arrived Melbourne Dec. 30, 1853 77 days out from London was a barque of 673/787 tons, which does not seem to match the much larger vessel  lost in 1862 
FLYING DUTCHMAN  ashore at  Port Albert august 1850 was identical with the brig this name lost at Port Adelaide 1851, although tonnages seem to be incorrectly reported the variation between 90 or 89 and 30 seems odd although additional deckhousing could explain it 
FLYING FISH,  SAN folio 19/1857 correct 
FLYING SCUD. amazing confusion, it was built by messrs Cook at Appledore, Devon, and first owners were resident of Isle of Man, but you have once again rearranged geography. 
FOAM 2ND ENTRY FOR on79280  NEVER REG IN New Zealand no matter how you change the spelling of Lyttleton.  It capsized near the Lakes Entrance Vic. in Nov.1905 when owned by Mr.Prior. and the vessel lost in Pittwater, Tas, not Broken Bay NSW was ON119240 as I show in my book but as so frequently happens you or your very misguided authors have managed to mix everything into a very muddled cocktail. I find nothing like the vessel of 10 tons you claim was capsized, but I quote from the Underwriters register with my information 
FOREST OF WINDSOR, actually named FORREST QUEEN from Windsor a town Nova Scotia. 
FORGET ME NOT, when built Dantzig was one of the Hanseatic states and not in any other country û as I have mentioned many times, this sort of thing needs clarification 
FORSTER was moored at BreckenridgeÆs mill at Failford when burnt 
FORSTER built 1914 was owned by builders û the Miles family, not myers 
FORWARD   BQ  built 1847 sold for demolition in 1888 and broken up in 1889 -    IN 1869 to Sydney.  IN 1874 ACQ by Howard Smith and made a lighter 
FOSTER FYANS, cannot understand what may confuse anyone with my account that gives a factual step by step report of the accident û what confused you? 
FOX -BRIG capt Cox lost sept 26,1810 Amsterdam Island, in Sydney in1809 and  owner said to be Campbell & CO., but which company not clear 
FOX  turning into another confused mess. 
FOX .brig 222  tons in Port Fairy when MARY in trouble did not have master named Irvine, it was Lowe and the vessel assisting was Lowestoft, master Munyard. The first time a master named Irvine, Irving etc., in charge of a FOX is June 1842 the vessel a brig 163 tons, and last time Jan. 1843 at Portland loading for Hobart. so this entry all wrong. Although the different tonnages all concern the one vessel FOX In May 1839 when first enrolled at Launceston it was given as  222t om by aug, 1841 it was given as 154 new meas. And in 1843 as 149 
Last two FOX pg. 336 same vessel. Which was built in 1851,rr 1851, not 57 and first in Aust at Hobart in 1854 as 183 tons, 1861 tonnage now 158 and rigged as Herm. brig, changed in 1864 =  2 m sch, 157 tons, when reg.Sydney 13/1861 last owner before æwreckedÆ  apl. 18, 1864 was Thos.Green & Sheldon.  In charge of part owner David Howell (other ptnr Alex Fraser) lost Richmond river in 1871 û these entries need a lot of clarifying if to assist anyone

FRANKLIN, see Aust. Coastal Pass ships, foundered in Townsville July 26,1893, not 1896 according Marine board report. You say it was lost off Point Malcolm Israelite Bay  but then in comment say that is not in Israelite bay????? 
FRANZ  was originally 23/1872 reg Sydney ex Peru   and was the same vessel as above 
FREAK (another fantasy section) first entry -  the 1849 item could not have happened to a vessel lost in 1834 and the first  vessel measured 84 feet  inches, I do not know where you got your 64 feet from 
FREAK, brig ashore, that you list above, is the vessel ON32385 
FREAK FORE AND AFT SCHOONER, NO TRACE ANYWHERE 
Brig Stockton ballast wharf is also ON 32385 
FRED S WHITE, San lists date reg. closed not fate 
FREDERICA, b.1858, July 1877 reg Melbourne by coal factor William Morely,  who was bought out by Messrs Huddart & Partners in July 1878, reg closed broken up 1913 = see my shipowners booklet No. 17 for full history Huddarts early days 
FREDERICA,  second entry completely wrong. The vessel involved was OTAGO as you say under that vesselÆs name but Lawson was usually so far out on most things he is hardly worth mentioning regarding nautical matters 
Frederick,1818 on her final voyage having tried to go west about put back to Hobart, arriving Hobart May 1818, set out again in June via Torres strait and reported lost as I published û do not know how the vessel could be lost in Torres Strait in May 1818 when it was recuperating in Hobart from a lost attempt to get away.. (if you do not believe me, see the Hobart papers of the day or  the Roebuck series Hobart arrivals/departures) YOU do have a lot of highly inaccurate reports          which you preferred to use in lieu of properly researched material 
FREDERICK, lost in New Zealand, was entering Hokitika RIVER not harbour û there was not a harbour there. 
FREDICA, Huddarts  coal hulk was actually named FREDERICA 
Freetrader,B.1850 ORIGINALY û 148 TONS 83.1 X 20.9 X 11.2 2 MAST SCHOONER. 1856 LENGHENED =   NOW 109.8  3 M BARQUE 206 TONS,. 1890  = 188T 111.0 X 22.2. WAS BUILT FOR Pt.albert trade. 
FREYA, my detail from contemporary Hamburg reports. Loney seems to have mistakenly taken FREJA built for Danish owners as vessel involved, see Lloyds registers 
FRIENDSHIP, Currumbene, is a place in Jervis Bay where ships were constructed 
FROLIC (as soon as we get a few vessels same name there seems to be confusion) 
FROLIC built Port Macquarie NSW not Tasmania, it begins. No one else knows about vessel like this lost Richmond River 1855. but as T.S.Mort was an auctioneer no doubt the SMH entries for 1853 are correct although the vessel was re-reg in 1854 (folio 4) in the name of Mort so instead of him selling he MAY have purchased her. 
FROLIC,  SAID TO BE TRADING TWEEN AUCK AND SYDNEY 1870   - no ship this name and size registered in any British port Australia or elsewhere in 1870. 
FROWNING BEAUTY, I also noted she was salvaged and became a coal hulk û editorial troubles again??

GEEBUNG, first entry NOT sunk off Sydney but made into houseboat in 1941, vide register and sunk c. 1962 as reported later and had been owned by Victorian Lighterage for many years. 
Sydney vessel was an unregistered former government owned vessel 
First two entries ps GEELONG, same vessel. With the year depart confirmed as 1852 And of course the usual geographic confusion, Greenock being in Scotland 
 And completely muddled comment after these entries û I should say  æalmost as usualÆà  why is it when there are more than one of the same name confusion pours in at a rate of knots??? with all of your contributors grabbing bits and pieces from every ship of the same name I suppose it is understandable. The unit built Glasgow 1854 arrived june 27,1855 from Greenock. and was first registered in 1856 by Locke & partners,  it was never owned by Australasian S.N.Co., but tug and lighterage owners  first Mr Tommy Norton secondly  G.W.Cole, who sold in 1859 to New Zealand 
GEELONG   owned by Howard Smith, never on the Melbourne-Geelong route and more useless chatter after entry for loss of vessel.  Adding to utter confusion about these ships some æAUTHORS?????Æ grab the gross tonnage others stick to net 
The third geelong on page 351 is the same as the Howard Smith entry at top of page. 
GEELONG P&OÆLund my report of torpedo attack wrong û do not know how this came about, obviously confused with another entry in my original typescript 
GELLIBRAND AND HESSE.  Nothing like those names mentioned in shipping port Philip 1837 nor any accident similar near Gellibrand 
GEM 99 tons, originally 121, and first in aust at Melbourne 1853, trans from Cape Town register -- more idle chatter. The register was closed in 1919 as stated, and the underwriters register 1880 notes sunk in sydney harbour. The vessel apparently rotted away she was last registered sydney 1878 to  Arthur McDonald û Loney, as usual, confused, - never a steamer 
The Gem allegedly built Williamstown in 1845, was actually the vessel built 1828 that visited until 1842  There was no Gem built Williamstown, but the 1856 entries refer to  the vessel built 1844 at Howden Docks Northumberland which arrived in Feb. 1852 from England.!!!!!!!!!! 
GENERAL ,no vessel this name registered in Australia c. 1890 
GENERAL BLANCO, w ship rigged 985 tons reg. in Kingdom of Hawaii, abandoned after stranding and taken to port for potential repair. Brought a large consignment of Chinese to the Victorian gold rush and was leaving Australia when damaged.  Never repaired and ultimately demolished

GENESTA,  actually GENISTA 
George Thompson, TWO ENTRIES FOR SAME SHIP, WITH  ANOTHER ENTRY 
TWIXT   ??? 
GEORGETTE, I do not know nor can guess how Henderson got such a wrong and very low official number, the one I quote came from Fremantle custom house register which I thought Henderson might have consulted. Chased Catalpa because it had come to take away some escaped West Australian convicts transported from Ireland because they were  thought to have been members of the infamous Fenian association. 
GEORGIANA  2nd,  more idle chatter of no consequence, and there was no problem for an 11 ton cutter to cross any ocean, should the owner wish to do so, see the current craze for long solo trips around the world in something the same size 
The GEORGIANA of 149 tons, which arrived March 3 1841 from London via Launceston was the vessel subsequently offered in the paper û just another example of strange guesswork of which we have in this book plenty of examples. 
GEORGIANA   Mutiny, more fatuous comments û encylopedia supposed to present information, not comment upon actions especially when commentators of 2006 try to understand, but usually do not, the conditions and attitudes of mid 1800s 
GEORGINA BARQUE 315 T, WAS LISTED CORRECTLY ABOVE AS GEORGIANA, therefore no need to æsupposeÆ anything, a simple statement Loney was wrong should suffice. 
GEORGINE davies, later amended to Georgina Davies was only stranded in 1891, and when salvaged was re-registered as EVA 
GEORGINA GODFEROY, wrong fate because, as usual Loney and friends take the date when register closed for fate, not worrying about the actual facts

GLAUCUS both entries same ship, she had been chartered by A & J Brown, Newcastle for use on the coast.  In march 1928 the press said, had been moored Williamstown for past three months but before anchored in Hobsons bay for three years, from dec. 1916 she had engaged in the phosphate trades. She left London  Dec.17, 1881 with general for Bris and sydney.. In 1885 was chartered for a trip to Hong Kong but she was stranded Dec. 1885 and having jettisoned the coal was eventually refloated and taken to Townsville for temp repairs.

GLENCOE ON31594, built 1846  Pictou, NB and reg Melbourne and NZ was lost in 1858,as I state 
The other GLENCOE, which was lost in New Zealand in 1878  ON31931, was also in Australasian waters at the same time and more likely to be the one you want to have in Victorian waters in the 1850s because, it was registered in Auckland in 1850, reg Melbourne in 1852, and at Port albert in 1861 then Hobart in 1865 before returning to Auckland in 1877. but there were TWO ships 
When reg Melbourne and Port Albert was owned by the Turnbull family of Port albert

GOVERNOR WYNYARD,  was  not the first steamship working on the Tamar û see Gypsy of 1842.  But as you say she did it in 1838, when built as a sailing shp in 1851 with an engine fitted in 1853 makes her 1838 appearance miraculous, Upon arrival in Melbourne was sold for the Tamar river in 1853, so she did NOT land passengers during gold rush in Melbourne and in March 1853 was first registered Melbourne  24/1853,by Launceston residents and trns to Lton reg  16 of 1854. engine removed Jan.1859. and we have some repeated information running through this entry 
GRACE DARLING, b.1869 was wrecked in 1914, not 1915 as stated 
GRACE DARLING  SHOWN LOST  Oct. 1877, was the vessel already listed above built 1869 and as Grace Darling steamer was not yet built not much point in drawing attention to it. Which just happens to be your next entry and as with many of your comments, simply wastes space, At times it looks as though you feel most of your readers will be so poorly educated they need to be hand fed. 
GRAFTON IRON PS  was wrecked near Strahan not the name you present. And it was the bar at Macquarie Harbour which you need to cross to get into the area of water known as Macquarie harbour to get to Strahan which has no BAR apart from in the pub where, from appearances, many of these wreck reports are conjured up. See also my Aust.Coastal Pass ships.  As built measured  316g 212n, 1877 397g 1879 424g 1885 =548, 1892 553g, variations resulting from alteration in passenger spaces  then lengthening and passenger acco alterations for different trades., rebuilt 1877 morts dock and converted to twin screw . built for Grafton S.N.Co. who merged in 1866 to form Clarence & RIchmon River SNCo had new engines installed in New Zealand in 1885 and lengthened.  In 1885 to Union SS Co of NZ Ltd, and with their acquisition of Tasmanian s.N.Co, the Union Line traded in Tasmania and this elderly vessel placed on the Strahan- Melbourne trade 
GRAFTON TOP PAGE 378, ALREADY FULLY REPORTED ON PREVIOUS PAGE!!!!!!!!!! 
Granite city, AND gneering, CONFUSION PROBABLY AROSE BECAUSE  THE FIRST PS City of DUNEDIN WAS ON THE STOCKS AND THE American civil war was raging,and blockade runners profitable, so the nearly completed vessel was   purchased and renamed GRANITE CITY.  ps Granite City sailed from the Clyde  Dec.1862 and was captured by the federal forces. The proposed city of Dunedin was replaced by another of similar tonnage. 
GRAZIER, was registered as THE GRAZIER as Brsbane 3/1897 and it was renamed SQUATTER in 1927. Wss ON196130,  150g/83n, B.1896 rock Davis, Brisbane Water, reg closed 1955, æthought to have been burnt.Æ And your first of this name was NOT the vessel put upon mud island, but the second entry which you also give to Mud Island. It was the 1924 ss  which Collin had for years. Once again confusion takes charge against serious research 
GREAT EASTERN, had no real connection with australia although it was hoped to convey large numbers of passengers to Ceylon for dispersal into small vessels for conveyance to other places one, potentially, Australian ports So no cause for inclusion in this work. 
GRECIAN,   ON32038 BUILT SOUTH TOWN, GT.Yarmouth, NORFOLK ENGLAND not usa and was never a warship, having been first reg London in 1825 as commercial vessel. While it may have been based in Hobart, it was not reg there until 1848 although it had been trading from UK to Hobart since 1832 
GRECIAN QUEEN two identical entries?????????? The vessel involved was ANNIE MELHUISH 
GREYHOUND clipper brig and next entry same vessel, J.F.Lloyd owned the vessel from Feb 1868 till Oct.. 1872 
GREYHOUND W ss being of wooden construction it is difficult to see how she could have started one of her stern-plates??? Sprung one of her planks more likely 
GRIEF, spelt incorrectly, and fatuous observation about the name very foolish. But see it as GREIF which is the correct name 
Grimenza, suppose he had arrived at Hong Kong from Peru, although your PRU could mean anything. And it is doubtful the agent offered much information about which goldfields, but by 1854 the Californian gold fields were out of fashion compared to the fabulously rich Australian fields

HANNAH  44 tns left Shoalhaven for Sydney not Sydney for Shoalhaven. 
HANNAH NICHOLSON was built in Whitehaven, Cumberland, UK, for William Nicholson of Melbourne, where it was first registered and sold May 1862 for the Melb-Mauritius trade, then to Bickers, Pt.Adelaide till 1892 Was then a collier in 60 miler trade from at least 1894 until sold to Westport Coal Co, and hulked. 
HANVARDEN CASTLE,  not listed in Lloyds or any other register. I suspect the vesselÆs name is HAWARDN CASTLE  WHICH SEE 
HARBINGER, a very mixed up entry.   As we discovered after Maber was in print, RECRUIT  was built as a sailing vessel by Ditchburn & Mare, Blackwall, LONDON, 
In 1846. sold out of the Navy in August 1849 to the builder, C.J.Mare and rebuilt  into a screw steamship The only iron hulled sailing vessel built for the Royal Navy 
The rebuilt vessel was said to be built in 1851 when reg London 188 of 1851, ON 26483, and sold to General Screw Stm Shipping co, and  enrolled as  848 gross ton, dimensions  186.5 x 31.1 x  19.2, that London reg closed in 1859 abandoned & sold as unseaworthy. The HARBINGER  later owned by Devitt & Moore, you spell Devitt incorrectly (no æEö on end), was built in 1876 for Anderson,Anderson & Co London (the Orient line)  and later sold to Devitt & Moore and  sometimes  used for cadet training, although that companyÆs famous training ship was the MACQUARIE obtained in 1890 for that purpose which was built in 1875 and named MELBOURNE by R & H Green so your entry completely mis leading HARGRAVES, original named ORLEANS, RE NAMED WHEN FIRST British at Sydney in 1853, 
Next entry same ship, which was originally enrolled 196 tons, and when stranded was owned in Sydney but sold to Geelong owners in Nov. reg folio 21/1853 
HARLEQUIN, was originally 71 tons, remea 1852. never legally owned by Boyd, and not repaired after Williamstown diaster and if ærefloatedÆ it was only to take it away from Melbourne to Williamstown 
Harriet 43 tons, built 1840 OWNER Edye Manning, not Eddie 
HARRIET(E) 31 tons, YOU START OUT SAYING UN REGISTERED THEN A FEW WORDS LATER SAY REGISTERED SYDNEY, WHICH IT WAS, POOR TYPING, AS SO OFTEN APPARENTà, 
HARRRRRRIET NATHAN  BUILT 1844 RR 1844  as per 2nd listing later. 
HARRINGTON  according to Cumpston first arrived Sydney June 12, 1801 from Calcutta. Apl 30 1804 left Sydney for Peru and arrived Mar 1805 with two prizes. Letters of Marque were carried         authorising hostiliy against country at war- not letters of permission. 
HARRY  wrecked Pt.Elliott, no trace any connection with River Murray Navigation Co although her cargo MAY have been going forward to customers per one of their river vessels. But the whole story madly wrong. It was on a coastal voyage from Port Wakefield, with goods for PtElliot and therefore probably for delivery via vessels of Muray River Navigation Copany, did not have the cargo ascribed to it û yet another from your collection of very poorly researched publications ûwhich do need to be corrected not preented as factual thus defeating the supposed purpose of the work. 
HARRY WOOD, most people believe it was lost in Tasmania but you place it in Westernport?? See Graeme Broxam, for example 
HASKJETH,  actually HESKETH

I quote from Lodon reg folio 277/1849, Sydney folio 77 of 1853 and Prof.HavilandÆs æAmerican steamships in China seasà. û I   wonder what, if any research, some of the people you choose to quote, ever performed???????????

HERBERT, coastal steamship, see æAust.Coastal Pass Ships. built Hebburn on Tyne, originally 233g/139n, 1899 -302g/152n, built for Townsville based owner, hence the name (Herbert river), sold in 1888 to Tasmania and next year United S S co formed, as per your next almost identical entry û this constant waste of space unbelievable.  It was scuttled  to mark a passage into Cleveland bay 
HERCULES, ps,b.1849 was owned by Melbourne SS C, but in 1885 formed part of Melbourne Coal,Shipping & Engineering Co fleet and re reg Melbourne as a lighter in 1913 was rebuilt at Williamstown 1883 arrived Melbourne Sept. 1, 1853 ex Dundee April 13th 85g,40n tons, 1883 û 93 tons first Melbourne owners Dove & Oswald, lighterage and towage contractors 
HERCULES  dredge b.1900 eng removed 1947 and eventually scuttled Moreton bay --  Tug of 1871 was owned and built at Maryborough Qld  in 1869 and reg closed 1896 ævessel broken up and burntÆ 
Whatever was sold in 1951, was not registered I cannot identify and seems another wrong date/description item 
HERO built 1837, from Port Adelaide to Portland register folio1 of 1845 when acquired by Henty family who sold in 1846 to Hobart owner. originally  36 tons but in 1846 re reg as 28 tons 
HERO burnt at Geelong in 1849 was said to measure 288 tons Charlewood ref, just as far off centre as possible, it was capt Tregurtha, E.P, usually although there were others, but NONE ever had a vessel called HERO  but e.p. IN Henry was well known in Port Phillip and presumably was the party Charlwood slurped up on and according to Lloyds for 1850 Capt.J.Donald was in charge of a vessel measuring 322 om 288 nm built 1845 at Aberdeen and owned by W.Duthie, reg,Aberdeen.  The press in 1849 said J.Donald was master of the vessel burnt 
Hero iss, see Aust.Coastal Pass Ships.  Brought to Australia by Bright bros, in 1862 as agents for the Black Ball Line, J.Baines and Co who had acquired the vessel and intended t use it to disburse immigrants from Melbourne to the other Australian colonies, but Baines went up by the time it had arrived in Melbourne. Worked till 1873 on Aust.coast when entered Sydney-Auckland-Melbourne pass trade that later extended to Fiji . Oct.1880 to Union Line; Nov 1886 to Sydney owners.but Union Line repossessed her in 1890 and sold  1891 to Noumea for use as a hulk at the nickel mines and blown ashore in a hurricane in 1901 and abandoned. 
HERO tug, has performed some wonderful work. You sink her under Sydney Bridge, in 1941, and raise her in 1944, but in 1943 send her down the coast on a mercy trip??????? (and no explanation about this apparent miracle!!!!!!!!) She was sunk under the bridge, Sept. 23, 1940 and was raised in 1944, so the other matter must be a mirage I suspect 
HERSCHELL was first named EDITH BYRNE, when sold to Sloman Hamburg, renamed later owned in Norway, was made hulk at Albany for Adelaide Steamship company in 1893 
HESKETH,  built for Australasian S.N.c. Reg.Sydney, trans to Australasian (you delete n) USN in 1887 and in 1897 trans to London reg for NZ Shipping Co. it May have touched the Wide Bay bar in 1889 but it was not a loss nor was it referred to authority; 
HIDE MARU Wrecked IN 1907 INVOLVED IN RESCUE 1933???? WE DO HAVE SOME WONDERFUL CONJURING ACTS RECORDED IN THIS PUBLICATION  I expect the vessel involved in 1933 was the vessel built in Australia in the 1920s???????????????/

HOOD HMS.  Did NOT destroy the Bismarck, but was destroyed by that German warship û just where this magnificent about face came from would be good to know û or does it come from the same place these other conjuring tricks emanate????? 
HOOGHLEY, was actually named HOOGLY AND WHILE IT may HAVE ENDURED A FIRE IN 1849 IT CONTINUED TRADING TO SOUTH

invevrna  actually IVERNA 
Inverness, QUERY RE COAL CARGO SHOWS JUST HOW LITTLE commentator KNOWS ABOUT THE SUBJECT he/she writes about -- Coal for any West coast of America port was about the only cargo economically required, while the vessel was travelling there for a cargo = if loaded at a south American port the cargo would be some sort of fertiliser or copper, while from north America the cargo most likely be wheat- another stupid ill informed comment. (one of so many)

IORANA, more ignorance of Australasian history or inability to check basic sources.- until Federation  Tasmania was ALWAYS  officially shown separately as Tasmania and NOT part of Australia in British official documents, reports etc.etc so the church was being very correct 
Iquique  see your messy Ijauqui which again demonstrates lack of checking and or willingness to jump at whatever seems easy but the compiler failed to realise this -there is every indication there was absolutely no checks, no thought of helping potential users etc., there is so much misdirection I am at a loss for means/words to describe such an attitude by an editor/publisher 
IRENE see Migrant ships to South Australia -  W 3m bq, B.1853 Watson, Sunderland, owners Mounsey & CO Newcastle upon tyne under Capt.David Bruce arrived Pt.Adelaide from London Dec 6, 1853  sold 1860 to London owners.

ISABELLA brig, which you have already noted is all wrong, so why include it as another insane manifestation by WLB????? 
ISABELLA bq whaler pg. 439 identical with previous more or less correct entry. It was NOT a whaler, but Capt.Hart was in command More wishful thinking, or grabbing at anything to match preconceived ideas 
ISABELLA, entries so muddled, have decided to ignore the rest and not waste time 
ISIS yacht registered at Lloyds?????????? Most unlikely more ignorance??
