Note:- The embarkation return shows that two boys and fifteen girls came out on the "Henry ". The list above contains the name s of 1 boy and 10 girls . The names of the other boy and five girls are not known. They may have been Mrs Giana's children . Presumably they weren't apprenticed at the time the return was made and hence were omitted from the list.
