A Ship Named “Wanata”

Question: 
“I am writing to seek any assistance you may be able to give me regarding an old ship “Wanata”.

In October 1852 my great great grand parents … sailed from England to Australia on the Wanata.  I would like to get a picture of the Wanata if possible.  There are no images to be found here in Australia.  I wrote to Greenwhich Museum UK but they have no images either.  I found on the internet that the Wanata was constructed in New Brunswick, so, although it is a long shot, I thought I should also try with you, in case you have images or information in your archives. 

It was amazing the way these little ships sailed all around the world.  It says a lot about the design & construction and the skill & knowledge of the sailors.  I thank you for your attention.  Regards.”
