excellent health during the voyage'BIOGRAPHY: 15/1/1855 'Wacousta at Moore's wharf. 22/1/1855 ' 29/1/1855
'BIOGRAPHY: 2/2/1855 'Wacousta -barque- for Akyab in ballast. passengers
Mrs Stewart, Miss Taylor and servant.BIOGRAPHY: It seems that captain Stewart was also the agent for thevessel and that his wife travelled with him. The publication evidentlyreceived advice from another vessel which met the Wacousta en route hence
the reference to Lat. and Long. (Oct 29).BIOGRAPHY: The vessel apparently sought cargo without success for acouple of weeks before leaving for Akyab (Burma ,Myanmar) in ballast.Note the inconsistent spelling throughout- Wacousta Waconsta.BIOGRAPHY: The vessel was a barque and at 737 tons would have probablybeen a three master but I cannot be certain. The combined State Library
site has a very good selection of ships pictures on line but
unfortunately none of the Wacousta/Waconsta.
