I need to locate Diaries, Surgeons' Reports, Logs etc which may give me information on births and deaths on the following voyages:
1. City of Washington, Liverpool to New York departing 25 May 1859 - I'm interested in the THEXTON family.
2. Rimutaka, Auckland New Zealand to Plymouth Great Britain, departing 6 May 1886. I'm interested in the STOREY. GANE and LITCHFIELD families.
Do these documents survive - and if so, where are they held?
Thanks for your help.

The ships manifest is seven pages long. There seems to be nothing in the ships manifest about births or deaths aboard the ship. Here are links to the page with the Thextons and the first page.

Passenger manifests for arriving ships in 1859 New York are available for free online searching. I found a list for the City of Washington arriving there 7 Jun 1859 on LDS microfilm online.
Familysearch.org -- Catalog search -- New York Emigration and Immigration, LDS film 0175548> frames 463-470. I briefly scanned through those pages and didn't note anyone listed as Thexton - but my eyes are not as good as they once were so you will want to do a more careful search yourself.
The originals of the passenger manifest arriving in US are held by the US National Archives.
