Just to add my 2 cents worth, if it's even worth that much:
In October, 2005, I found my gggrandmother on the Barque Stambone which
Tralee, Ireland, 6 June, 1851, on the Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild.
She is listed as
age 13, alone! I did not find her aunt, with whom she was supposed to be
traveling, nor her parents who came after she left.
At the port of New York: "I, John Farrow, Master of the Br Barque
Stambone, do solemnly,
sincerely and truly swear that the ..........the said Barque at Tralee,
from which port said Barque has now arrived............"
Somewhere I have read that the port waters were too shallow for the larger
ships to sail
into and so passengers had to take another ship out to where the larger
The Stambone might have sailed from Liverpool to Tralee - who knows.
