Thanks Derrylass,

I found Dominick's son George on that Coastguard  list taken from the 1881 Census from Fleetwood U.K.

Hi

There are some coastguard records on the National Archives UK dgital microfiche - v large pdf files but many free - not indexed but this part is in tables.

If you've not used them I'll look next time I'm on.  Has to be a quiet time for the big files.

Might work better for someone with a bigger system.

Best wishes

I've downloaded most of the Ireland ADM175 Coastguard records from the National Archives UK ... unfortunately these only cover up to the mid 1860s..

Do you know if (and where) Dominick  was serving at that stage ?

I found a possible match for him ..

 Ref.: ADM175/20 / Pg. 279/440
 Station: Guidore  (Gweedore?)
 Date of Appointment to the Station :  22 Nov 54
 From whence Nominated, or Station removed fom : Rathmullen
 Name : Dominick Doherty CG
 Quality: Com. Btm.   
 Removed or Absconded :  Discharged
 Date of Discharge or Removal : 30 June 67
 Station Removed to : Superann.
 Remarks : 835-14 / 57  £43.16.4
   
I believe that amount is his annual pension..now that I have a starting point I can try to trace him back. It's unusual to see someone posted in the same location for so long - generally they were moved to different postings.

Thank you, Rathmore, Emms,and  Shane for your interest and help.  The only info i have on Dominick Doherty  is that he  was a coastguard  and  lived in Bunbeg Co Donegal .  His wifes name was Charlotte Dyer their son George born Donegal abt 1843, was a  coastguard in Dublin then went to Liverpool/Fleetwood. What i would really like to know is Dominick's fathers name and where he came from. I have been told recently that Dominick was related to me ,but my Doherty ancestors were from Dunaff,Urris,Clonmany not Bunbeg Donegal, hoping someone can help me solve this puzzle.
