The "passenger lists" which you find here and there are actually drawn (primarily) for surviving ships' account books. The lists reflect passengers who had not paid for their passages, not a list of all passengers. Assuming Jellis Douw paid his passage in advance, his name should NOT appear on a "passenger list".
