The following information on the Barbara is given in the annual volumes of "Lloyd's Register of Shipping" for 1846/47 - 1849/50: master: [James] Mackay; owner: Persse & Co; port of registry, Galway; port of survey, Liverpool; destined voyage, New Orleans. The Barbara is last listed in "Lloyd's Register" for 1849/50; no reference to a wreck or other casualty is posted against the entry, so I do not know whether her removal from the "Register" is an indication she was no longer in service, or that she had been sold to other owners, either British or foreign, [who] chose not to continue her registration with Lloyd's.
