Thanks Alison,

Now it makes sense. I wasn't paying enough attention to the hard drinking passengers in the background.

All the best,
Alan

(I have just done this once and got logged off for some reason just as I was posting!)

to: Alan and Annette - I have just received the marriage certficate for Isabella Barr and John Little.
Her father was Alexander Barr, Ship's Steward. (which probably explains why he is lost to the censuses after 1851.) They married on 11th May 1871 in Dublin. They were living round the corner from each other in Donnybrook at the time.

I've since found a little more; Isabella Neilson Barr, born 4th December 1843 to Alexander and Isabella Neilson - her mother given on the 1851 census as Isabella Neilson.

So Captain William Barr was her Uncle Willy, which all fits satisfactorily, I think
....thanks for your help, all - Alison.
