Pure Merinos and Others: The ‘Shipping Lists’ of the Australian Agricultural Company

This book by P. A. Pemberton, originally published in 1986, is online in PDF format. Between 1825 and 1862 the Australian Agricultural Company and its subsidiary, Peel River Land and Mineral Company brought over 700 men to New South Wales from England, Ireland, China, Germany and Chile to work on their extensive pastoral estates or at their colliery in Newcastle. Many were accompanied by wives and families. This book is a must if you have family associated with these companies.
