TROVE just keeps on giving.. There are so many lists available that could possibly be of help in determining where our ancestors came from... The list of Immigrants who arrived on the GOLCONDA in October, 1858, is one such list. See below...

Outward Bound, January 17, 1853 Golconda, painted in 1876 by LDS artist George M. Ottinger.

Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954), Friday 22 October 1858, page 6
National Library of Australia

IMMIGRANTS per GOLCONDA.—Notice is hereby
given, that the undermentioned persons, for whom
passages were provided to this colony. In pursuance of de-
posits made under the Remittance Regulations, have arrived
in the ship Golconda, and that they will be prepared to join
their friends—the single females, from the institution in
Hyde Park Barracks, on and after their arrival there, and
the families and single males, from the ship on SATURDAY next, the 23rd instant, at one o'clock p.m.

See the list below...

 I decided to look a bit further and have included the details of the crew, thanks to Mary-Anne Warner's great site...

Do leave a comment if you find any of your ancestors in this list.. it's always good to know that someone has been found.


  1. I claim this Catherine Considine !! My verification is incomplete but I'm hopeful this is my GGG Grandmother (maternal line).

  2. How I hope it is, please let me know if you confirm it.. Love your name by the way..
    Thanks for commenting.

  3. Thank you for posting the passenger list of the Golconda. There are 2 passengers with the surname of BROOK, Henry and Susannah from Sussex. The surname should be BROOKER. These are my Great-great-grandparents.

    1. I'm so pleased to read that you found them on the list. Unfortunately, mistakes often occur, it depends on what the person writing the list heard or interpreted the name to be. It's important to not give up, to keep trying alternate names...as you have just proven. Thank you for your comment.
