South Africa / 1896 Voyage to Cape Town
« on: Yesterday at 14:12 »
Mr.A.G.Taylor of 44, Herbert Street, Swindon, Wiltshire, England sailed to Cape Town on 28 November 1896. The ship's name is recorded as "GREEK" but I cannot find any ship with that name and am wondering if it was in fact from the Greece Shipping Line. Any ideas , anyone?
Thanks, Toby.

I really do have to recommend this:-

More than a simple dictionary, it does translations. T

Here is the word Toronto.
Does that help?

Continuing with the Tranter name. The North Wilts Directory of 1908 reveals a little. At 164, Rodbourne road, Swindon there is a baker & confectioner  A.Tranter.  1891 and 1901 Censuses ought to help but do not. T

Nothing much I can do today as it is now too dark outside for me to photograph some other pages. I tried the flash but the result is a completely white page. There are three hands in this book and most of the entries are in ink. This particular entry is in pencil. T

Yes. I agree this is a possibility. Unfortunately some-one quite different was in that house in the 1901 census. T

I an quite stuck with the name of a gentleman who is booking a passage to Canada leaving on an unspecified ship at the end of March 1904. He was living, at that date, at 206, Rodbourne Road, Swindon. Be pleasd if anyone can help. Toby.

Thank you minniehaha for those extra bits of the puzzle.
Re your notes, Janette, for which many thanks, I knew that Percival & Doris sailed to NZ without their children but have not discovered what happened to them. Flixton is indeed the place but Philip is new. You mention 3 passengers 327, 328 & 329 so this suggests another brother but I do not have access to your string so that will have to wait for now.
The memorial to Percival & Doris shows Michael & Derek only so if there was indeed another brother - Philip- perhaps he had died before 1979,
