Ships operating Sydney to NZ routes between 1880 - 1900
 
I am currently researching the history of my Gt. Grandfather who seemingly migrated from England to Australia c1880.

In June 1891 the following appears in a Sydney Australia newspaper:-
Australian Town and Country Journal (Sydney, NSW : 1870 - 1907) Sat 20 Jun 1891
Missing Friends.
HOBSON-If this should meet the eye of W. F. Hobson, last heard of as cook on board one of the Union Co.'s steamers, or anyone knowing of his whereabouts, would they please communicate with his son, THOMAS HOBSON, c. o. W. Avery, Tug Orestes, Newcastle
?

Picking up on the reference to the 'Union Co's steamers', I am trying to establish which ships from that fleet operated out of Sydney (possibly on Sydney to NZ routes) between 1880 - 1900

From that I am hoping to find references to crew members lists that might help in furthering our research.

The article above was submitted by his son, Thomas HOBSON, who must have had some indication at that time as to his father's location.

Any information or pointers to where we may pursue our research would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

John S
