The information listed above is not the complete record of the ship. The information was collected from a multitude of sources, and new information will be added as it emerges
In 1852 the brig Vestalinden departed from Drammen on May 28th, and arrived at Quebec July 6th. She was carrying 162 passengers. Mastered was Captain J. A Jacobsen. Because the National Archives of Canada [NAC] did not start the archiving of passenger lists before 1865, and the Norwegian emigration records did not start before 1867, there is no surviving passenger list for this voyage in any of those archives.
