I can't thank you enough for all the information you have given me. I think I will try to make the trip to the Records Office later in the year. This is the only lead I have and I want to chase it up.

Bet you didn't think when you got up this morning that you would be able to make anyone this happy!

Again many thanks

Hello Liz.

Your most welcome.

How about - because it costs nothing to ask - e-mailing Whitehaven Records Office - address on this link. (Nothing ventured - nothing gained)  ;D

Thanks for that I will ask them in my e-mail. I still think I would like to come up to Cumbria though as I would really like to see the area in which my GGGG Grandfather was born and grew up.
   
I especially want to see where he would have sailed from and what sort of cargo the ships carried. Do you think the Records office might have some of the ships logs?

Have a look at Mags' Cumberland shipping link, Liz.
Dettori, we called it a yacht but more of a rowing boat same as the chateau in France. 8)

Hi Bob and Dettori
I hope you both see this as I believe I have made a discovery today that confirms the info you gave me yesterday.

I went onto the Welsh Mariners Index site and found this reference to James Reney/Rainey, "James Reney was born at Harrington Cumberland on 4th February 1790, the elder son of a Master Mariner and ship owner. As a young man, already the Captain of the Brig 'Ann' he must have sailed into the then new port of Connah's Quay, where he eventually settled after marrying a local girl, Sarah Tellett at Hawarden Parish Church on 13th August 1815. They raised a family of eight children, so starting the Reney dynasty of Master Mariners, ship owners and entrepeneur."

Thank you both so much, without your help and encouragement I may never have thought to search Mariners databases!
