    The LOTUS Arrived Swan River on 23rd October 1829
    As the original Passenger List has not been located, this has been compiled from the 1832 Census with further information from a Battye Library Register of Inward Passengers printed in "Arial".   The B.L. reference for this register is not known at this stage.   Passenger names marked with an * are recorded in this Register.   Ages given are those at the time of the 1832 Census.{England abbreviated to Eng}.   Lloyd's Register for 1829, gives the following details for the "Lotus".   Ship, 397 tonnes, sheathed with copper, single deck with beams, built in 1828 at Whitby, surveyed A1 at London in April 1829, under the command of Captain Summerson.  Most of the settlers on board are indentured to Colonel Peter Latour who planned an ambitious emigration scheme on 100,000 acres of land in the Leschenault area.   The scheme came to nothing, and within a year most settlers were freed from their indentures.
