The Middlesex mastered by John Salmon, was a wooden barque of 418 tons built at Sunderland in 1839, owned by Duncan Dunbar and Co. The vessel arrived with 219 passengers. There were four births (including Elizabeth and James Gorey's son Michael) and four deaths on the passage.
14 family members including Ann Gorrey came on the Middlesex. Their website has a picture of the Middlesex - Michael Gorey comments - This is a poor scan of a watercolor painting of the “Barque Middlesex” by RH Shadlow. I haven’t been able to find a better copy of this, or any reference to Shadlow. If anyone knows how I can contact the artist please let me know.
