Armed Forces / Re: Peter Parker 1785_1857 - Gunner HMS Prince

Very confusing......but I think there was both a British built and French built ship in 1805 of the same name. I think the British boat was a frigate built at Bucklers Hard in 1801 (this is the one I think My GtGtGt Grandfather served on) This boat was in the Bay of Biscay in Oct 1805, then there was a French boat of same name captured at BoT by the British and then recaptured straight back by French, which then sank in the Med a few months later.

Fascinating stuff. Thanks for all the help. Thank-you too Jebber - small World indeed !

Thanks to both of you for all your help. MaxD - i think that is the same Peter Parker based on a few other bits of info I have collected (but can't be 100% sure).

Philip - again can't be sure but I dont think he was on HMS Prince as early as 1805, but doubtless a serving man then just on another boat.

Hello,

My 3rd Gt Grandfather Peter Parker was, I believe, Gunner on HMS Prince when he retired sometime before 1851. Ive managed to find a little bit on him but suspect if I knew where to look there'd be more to uncover. In the 1851 census for Portsea, All Saints he was listed as a 'Superanuated Gunner'. It would be great to know when he joined the Navy, where he was posted and on what ships etc. If anyone can offer any more info or point me in the right direction I'd be very grateful.

Thanks very much
Adrian

Hello,

My 3rd Gt Grandfather was, I believe, Gunner on HMS Prince. Ive managed to find the attached papers, but can't read more than the names and possibly the address (Aylward St., Portsea). Can anyone read any more or find any further info on Peter.

Thanks very much
Adrian

Thank-you Cas
Thank-you Giggsy
Thank-you Willsy

All very helpful. John Bingham did move to Leader Road in Hillsbrough, Sheffield and I used to visit his son Charlie , My Gt Grandfather, when I was very young. I'm still struggling to be sure which of apparently two Abraham Hartills is the correct Father of Isaac Hartill b 1806 . There appear to be two born in Willenhall about 5 years apart in the  the early/mid 1770's.

Once again thank-you for all your help. I will follow up on the leads.
Regards
Adrian

Hi all,

My first post on here so apologies if it's in the wrong place etc. I'm looking for some help with the Hartill's of Willenhall. My Gt Gt Grandfather, John Bingham b. 1864 married my Gt Gt Grandmother Mary Hartill b. 1867 in about 1886 or 7 and I'm looking for information and relatives on my Grandmother's side prior to this. I believe her Father was John Alfred Hartill b. 1846 who was married to Mary (Daly?). His Father was I believe Isaac Hartill b. 1806. If anyone can confirm (or correct me) and/or provide some earlier history I'd be very grateful.
Thanks in advance
Adrian
