Note on original passenger list: With respect to the embarkation return of emigrants on board the "Sir Charles Forbes" in May 1842, it appears that DanL the son of George Moulder aged 6 years and Thomas the infant child of Mrs Maddox under 1 year old who to my knowledge were on board, are omitted in the Surgeons return.
