    Henry Presley is missing from your passenger summary..he was was married with children. His brother Sammuel was single.

      Thank you for that. We have checked the hand written list that was used onboard the Cressy, and sure enough Henry Presley and his wife are on the married passengers list.
      We have made the changes above.
