Hi Elizabeth,
I just made contact with a cousin descended from Kezia Forrester (nee Webb) who says she was an assisted immigrant in 1858 on the Confiance to Adelaide. However I haven't been able to find any passenger list for this voyage. Any ideas?
Check The South Australian Advertiser (Adelaide, SA : 1858 - 1889) Monday 29 November 1858 for the passenger list of the Confiance arrived in Adelaide Sat 22 Nov 1858.
-The ship Confiance, 851 tons, James Tweddle, master, from Plymouth August 5th. F. J. Beck and Co., agents. Passengers - find Kezea Webb - her name is in the line beside column 2 Great Britain, with 5th paragraph beginning "With reference to the postal ..."
