Thanks for the comment Mori. I have updated the name of the vessel in our records. As for the shipbuilder I can find a few references for "Hawker" and "Hawkins", do you have a reference for "Hawkson"? Cheers Erika

This vessel is the Brinawarr built by John Hawkson at Coolangatta and launched in 1890.
