Transcriber's Notes:

* The original Quarterly List had columns for Name of Vessel, Month and Year of
  Arrival, and Where from. These columns have been incorporated into title
  information. The ships have been transcribed individually.

* None died on the voyage, therefore the column is omitted.

* Passengers were numbered by the transcriber.

* The Quarterly List of the 4th Quarter of 1820 carried the Collector's Office
  statement following the last ship. The name of the signer may be J.R.
  Pringle.

  document.
