Arrival reported in Sydney 'Free press and commercial journal', 20 Feb 1841, with identical list of passengers Henry Dendy born 1800 at Abinger, Surrey
Court case Source: Sydney Herald, 26 May 1841[1]
Sittings in Banco, before Mr. Justice Burton, and Mr. Justice Stephen.
Isaac Nathan V. James Legg.
In this case an affidavit had been made by the plaintiff, stating that in Sept. last he had shipped 12 cases of goods on board the defendant's ship the York, then in the Thames bound for Port Phillip and Sydney; that of these cases ten had been delivered, that two of them were yet undelivered, that the plaintiff had applied to the defendant since the arrival of the ship at Sydney for the delivery of those cases, and had tendered him the freight for the same that the defendant had referred the plaintiff to his agents Messrs. Dunlop and Co., to whom the plaintiff paid the freight, but that the defendant would not deliver the said cases that the same contained goods worth 100, and that an advertisement had been published in a Sydney newspaper, stating that the ship would shortly sail for Calcutta, and that therefore the plaintiff believed that the defendant was about to remove himself out of the jurisdiction of the Court.
Diary of Victoria - Part 7 - 1841 Henry Dendy arrived in Melb on the ship York, with his wife and son.
