HI Lisa.. I was reading the list of Sandbach ships and this is the first time I've found some names which may help my search. My 3rd gr-grandfather was George Sydney Meerten and he was born about 1829 in Demerara, Guyana. Unfortunately no one knows who his family was. As a wee boy he was sent to England in 1835 (Tikwis found the 'intent to leave the colony' for me a number of years ago (ever grateful too).. I'd love to find his name on a ship manifest and with the ship names I found on your list I may be able to. STill won't help me learn who his family was but that is the challenge isn't it. George ended up in England and married in 1857 - but even a 'hired professional genealogist' couldn't find out where he was from 1835-`1857 in England (ie orphange school labor)?No one knows. Many thanks for the work you have done. Cheers, Val Davies.
