Passenger List

As we have discovered from James Ryan Caddy’s obituary, he left for Australia with his wife Constance Annie Carson and their newborn son Thomas Hollingsworth Caddy, who was christened only days before the “Lady Douglas” left London for Fremantle on the 20th April 1884, arriving in Fremantle on the 9th July 1884.

The following images are of the Passenger List dated 9th July 1884 and newspaper article announcing the arrival. Arrivals were often noted in the papers a month before the vessel was to arrive. Maybe advising relatives at the port of arrival that their relatives were on board. We are also fortunate with this newspaper entry as full names are given. That often was not the case.

It is also worth noting the names of the fellow passengers. Were any of these people friends of the Caddy’s? Family maybe? Note that James Caddy’s middle name is Ryan, the surname of his mother. At the bottom of the passenger list are 3 Ryan’s. Could they be related?

If you would like a copy of the full page for the Passenger List of the “Lady Douglas”, please use the contact me link at the top of this page.
