You could have looked this up yourself in the Ancestry US database of
Passengers Arriving in UK Ports 1878-1960. I would look it up to confirm
the above information. I've been finding a lot of errors in this
database. You have to look carefully at the actual manifest image as
sometimes passengers got off or boarded at ports other than what comes up
in the search results page. For example, a ship leaves New York but picks
up passengers at Boston on its way to Liverpool but the person you are
looking for may have gotten off at Queenstown on the way. I've also found
several occasions where it brings up the wrong image entirely.
"London", presumably failing to understand that "Port of London" is
umpteen miles of the Thames much of which is not in London.
