Thanks very much for the info.

GB - A better (than FS) site to search 1881 is the LAC link at:

so you can do your own transcription.

Similarly, for the LAC 1871/1891 links - there are other options for later years, and 1852.

The original of that passenger list looks more like Esau than Evan to me.

Hi All

Can anybody helps please.

I have Esau James Webb born Orsett/Grays Essex in 1862, I have him on all census except 1881. The only census i can find is 1881 Canada. Is it possible for somebody to have a look at the passenger list please. He married in 1887 back in Essex.

Any help appreciated
