And thanks - hope the steep long hill had cooled down a bit, here we are in a wide type river valley, so no hills to climb, but the valley holds the temperature high and humid.
First back to David and the Finns - one of the entries states that the cargo was 437 Tons of Coal, and we have the ship down as 297 Tons - if she was built in 1854, then I suppose the ship's tonnage rating would come under the Moorsom System, which I understand was brought into being in 1849 ?
Ellington Jnr it appears was a busy man then, looking forward to full details ,when you have time, also have found an entry, for (I think him) with a cert No. of 37890 - dates between 1845-54.
Pity about his old man though I think some of the ships I found, on B.N. must have been his, a cert his son is too young to be on any of those.
Must keep taking the tablets and hugging the shade.
