I am trying to locate the family of William Wait. He was born 7 June 1825 in North Berwick, Scotland. William Wait was certified as a Master at London in April 1852. The last voyage entered is for 1859, on the Broadwater, which left London portIt is then noted that he discharged at 'Hob Town', which I presume is Hobart Town, Tasmania. Family lore says he was first mate on a ship lost in the China Seas.
Any information on the Wait family in Tasmania would be appreciated. Sam Wait
