Hi Lucy,

Roger Griffiths is your man for this time period. I am sure he will be along in due course.
The column 1876 out/home - indicates his outward voyage 18 August 1876 which was F = Foreign going. 70509 = the Swansea registered sailing barque ABERFOYLE. 1877 shows the return voyage to the UK on 12 December of that year.

Regards
Hugh
