The initial passenger list for the Blenheim, did not include a Michael McEachnie. The embarkation list included Michael McEachnie, 36, twice, once as a labourer and once as a shepherd, with the later entry describing him as a shepherd crossed out. In the later lists he is described as a shepherd.

No further information has been confirmed for Michael McEachnie.
There is a possibility that the “M McEachan” listed as arriving in Hobart on the Lord Sidmouth on 19 February 1841, may have been Michael McEachnie. A number of other Blenheim passengers were aboard, including John Chisholm, spelled “Chisom”.
