Passengers on the Echuca

An email from Sharon McBride of Perth, Western Australia to the Perth DPS newsgroup included the following list of passengers. I have reproduced the message and list here with Sharon's full permission.

Please remember that the list was compiled by Sharon who has a list of her research interests at If you can help her with her family research please contact her direct.


Just in case someone else can get Lucky. The Echuca sailed from London on 16 February 1892 to Fremantle. I have a copy of the Matron's Diary for most of the girls & also a plan of the Steerage area.
