Full passenger list with corrections and alphabetised: Updated 13 June 2018.

This is much conjecture about the exact passenger list and numbers, and crew names etc. This cross referencing table has been compiled by me from as many sources as possible in order to consolidate it as best as possible. All sources are listed in the below legend and the table. I do not profess to this being the perfect list as it would appear there is no one complete or correct source.

Any corrections or extra information is very much welcome. As 150 year old handwriting is extremely difficult to read, and there are considerable differences between each of the 4 handwritten shipping lists and news articles – I have done my best and included all possible alternate spellings and I have included confirmations from descendants where I have received them. Note that the differences in ages between the Netherby lists and the City of Melbourne lists could account for birthdays during the voyage, or just general errors.

With regards to the 4 different scanned shipping lists: I have worked on some logic with regards to which list is which – and why. Happy to be corrected as much of it is guess work and an attempt at logic!

** Where a surname is underlined – it links to a separate passenger history page on that person or family (also found in the index on the left).

LEGEND of sources:
  • Main Netherby list – From scanned Netherby passenger list & ticket number where readable. As it contains ticket numbers and occupation info, this was possibly the list lodged with the Black Ball Line in London or Plymouth, or it was possibly the list on board the ship and was retrieved by the Captain or Surgeon during the wreck.
  • Alternative Netherby list – (Sourced August 2017 Ancestry.com). This list refers to being wrecked on King Island and the date at the top of page one. As some names are crossed off and others are not - I initially thought it might have been showing those who did or didn't go to QLD but the crossed out names do not tally up with those we know definitely stayed in VIC. It could therefore also be the classification list prepared by Immigration Officer Lesley Moody as the rescued were arriving in Melbourne as it contains ticket numbers and ages etc.
  • City of Melbourne departure list 31 July 1866 – (New resource – found 10 June 2018) From scanned PROV shipping list dated 31 July 1866 departing Melbourne to Brisbane via Sydney. It has a declaration on the bottom of the final page that the above is "a correct List of the Names and Descriptions of all the Passengers who embarked at the Port of Melbourne" and is signed by the ships Master and the Emigration Officer and dated 31 July 1866. States 196 ½ on board. Dr Webster and Purser Lockhart not in the list but we know were transported for free based on several newspaper articles and notices.  Many names (173: 31 couples, 55 children, 51 single males, 2 single females) crossed off – likely to be those who didn’t board as all match existing descendants knowledge about who stayed behind. Of the others crossed off – 3 (Springett, Bluett, Attwood) travelled up later on the City of Brisbane steamer; and a batch are crossed off but we know they were saloon passengers and are mentioned in the shipping arrivals in the Queenslander (Crawford, Duppy, Evans G, Gill Mr and Mrs, Miss Thomas, Townsend family x 6, Vincent, A Webster, Young).
  • City of Melbourne arrival list 6 August 1866 - Possibly the list prepared for immigration arrival into Brisbane as it references the arrival date at the top. (Note that this is not believed to be fully correct as there are passengers names on it where the descendants know they did not leave Melbourne. It also contains the names Capt Owens, Bluett, Attwood, Springett – who actually travelled up on a later ship named City of Brisbane).
  • From news article - The Loss of the Netherby, The Queenslander Saturday 28 July 1866 which included an extensive passenger list (also indicating saloon, second cabin, intermediate passengers – all others are steerage) with a lot of typo’s.
  • Other news articles or letters – Where passengers were referenced in other news articles or letters to the editor, or referred to in other passenger’s letters.
  • Passengers petition – Letter to the Editor thanking Capt Owens 30 July 1866, also on page 86 – 87 of Gazette.
  • Public Record Office Victoria text database: (Note that the records on this site show many duplicated entries and multiple spellings. Also noted that as Captain Owens appears in the passenger list on PROV that some other names not able to be matched to other sources may in fact also be crew – have listed these as TBC **) 
  • (PROV-OUT) Public Records of Vic – text database list of outgoing passengers from Victoria to Brisbane via Sydney on City of Melbourne captained by D Walker 
  • Descendant – Information direct from descendants.
  • Ann's List – compared against Ann Rutte’s own spreadsheet and matched up – with any differences or additions noted.
  • KT – Extra notes by me (Karina) where confusion reigns!!
  • TBC – indicates various anomalies and are noted beside the name and are in a ‘to be confirmed’ status. Indicates possible duplicates due to miss-spellings, or only one source matched, or basically unable to verify (could also possibly be crew).

Other resources not successful:
  • National Archives of Australia – Shipping lists Brisbane inwards 1852 to 1964 (Searched all for entry into port of Brisbane for 1866 – City of Melbourne not listed)

Occupation notes: These notations are from notes on Larry Lingard Davis' copies of the passenger lists and I am assuming are from his own research.
Navy/Navvy: a labourer, originally a labourer on a navigation contract.
Viceman: a smithy
Smith: An iron worker, blacksmith, whitesmith, brightsmith, tinsmith, goldsmith, silversmith.
Labourer: physical work of an unskilled kind.
Sawyor/Sawyer: cuts & saws timbers for use by a carpenter.
Wheelwright/Wainwright: a person who made or repaired wheels on wagons, carts and other farm implements.
Mason: A person who builds with stone.
Serf/Villein: a peasant personally bound to a Lord.
Groom: a person who cares for horses.
Cook: preparer of food.
Merchant: a person engaged in the purchase and sale of commodities for profit.
