You told me George and Eliza Douglas, from Ireland, had 3 children before setting off to Australia. You thought that you had them coming into Melbourne on the Brig of Hamburgh, Reibersteig 10 September 1852. I think the the name of that brig might be the 'Reiherstieg' of Hamburg (i.e. not Brig of Hamburgh).
