Clipper Golconda - Chartered Shaw Saville

Hi Everyone, am trying to trace the crew list of the Golconda - a clipper chartered by Shaw Saville to take assisted passengers from London to New Zealand. The particular voyage I am interested in left London on 2 September 1859. A Henry Thomas jumped ship from the crew in Nelson . We have been unable to trace our Henry Thomas so are wondering if that was not his real name. That is why I would like to find the crew list for this ship, which was captained by a E Montgomery.
Any suggestions out there as to where to go to find these records. I have tried Maritime museum but unable to find
Any help greatly appreciated

Once you've identified the right ship, search this site under the ship's official number for crew agreements:https://www.mun.ca/mha/holdings/searchcombinedcrews.php

Hey Dave W - thank you so much - think I have finally located ship number 26266. Checked out crewlist on here but nothing for this ship. At least I can now hire someone to track down the ships records, so again, thank you

An oversight from Dave W

Crew Agreements for 1859 are not available from MHA Newfoundland. Their Records of Crew Agreements begin in 1863. The 1859 Crew Agreements of GOLCONDA 26266 will be in the series BT98 at the British National Archives. Be aware that GOLCONDA may not have returned to a UK port until !860. and details of the voyage commencing 2/Sept/1859 will be contained in her first Crew Agreement for 1860. These records are also stored in BT98.

https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ils/r/C4071176

You can order copies. Be sure to give the name and official number of the vessel.
I would get hold the first 1860 crew agreement initially. If its no go then try the 1859 C/A covering the date 2/Sept/1859.



regards
Roger

OK, found my man, not Henry Thomas, but Henry Thompson, so thank you all for your help. Now I am trying to find him on previous ship named Maynards which I believe went to and from South Africa. I have his discharge certificate for this ship numbered 12331. Now struggling to find this one. As before, any help much appreciated
