Comment

"Aldinga" sailed Monday 26th January 1874 from Melbourne and arrived Port Adelaide Wednesday January 28 1874. On board was my GGgrandmother Rebecca Charlotte BAYLY and 4 children Deborah, Francis, Rebecca, and Richard BP Bayly, but no mention of father Richard Griffith BAYLY and other son William. May have travelled this sea route earlier. Can I get a picture of this ship? Master was William McLean.
