From Perilous Voyages, p63-4 - 32 cases of typhoid, dysemtry and other serious diseases occured ... ten souls perished, and most of those were children. On arrival at Port Phillip she was put in quarantine but 5 sailors refused further duty, and were sentenced to a month in Melbourne gaol. Also employers were reluctant to engage possibly ill arrivals.

Bowker came as Surgeon on the Georgiana and was a passenger arriving 3 Jul 1841 per "Frankfield" at Sydney, New South Wales, from Melbourne. From Bowker Surg Supt's Notes - A young Irishman, an attorney named Purcell, had been a passenger on board the Frankfield from Liverpool. He brought several letters of introduction to people in Sydney. He delivered one and said the gentleman read it, keeping nodding his head all the time and in such a contemptuous manner that before he had finished it, his Irish blood was up. He bade him good morning and walked away. He determined to give no more introductory letters, and being short of money did not know what to do.

Note

Rootsweb query, email bounced, If anyone has Marion Button's 'Port Phillip Herald and Argus Passengers' index handy, I'd be grateful if they could check the reference to the arrival of Brabazon Purcell, said to have arrived on the 'Frankfield' (in the Button Index). I'd like to know the details contained in the entry, and whether his wife, Henrietta, and any children arrived with him.
