Second Trip
Arrived Port Leschenault (Australind) 22 May 1844

Mr John Allnutt
Mr Benjamin Piggott
21 men, women and children
Total 23

No detailed list has yet been sighted. It is probable that Mr Piggott’s brother James was also a passenger.

Notes for my Public and Private Journal from November 1843, MW Clifton.
Entry 22 May 1844, telling of the arrival of the ‘Trusty’ continues “She had 23 men women and children for us. 2 Land Purchasers only viz. Mr Allnutt and Mr Piggott.”

The list is compiled from ‘The History of the Harvey District’ written by AC Staples in 1950
