Re: Numbers on 1895 UK passenger list #unitedkingdom #general

I do see that this is what the heading of the column says, but in this case, the numbers I see are clearly not ages.  The ages are given in another column.  It looks like the numbers in the first column are preceded by a symbol.  It looks like a symbol for pounds in some cases, but there is another symbol as well.  And the numbers are all 4 digits (or even 5 in one case), so if it is money, it's quite a large sum for those days, so I'm not sure what it's referring to.
