master mariner
« on: Thursday 16 January 14 19:59 GMT (UK) »
Hi
could anyone possibly tell me if there are any online sites whereby i could research the career of a master mariner. I am researching my grt grt grt grandfather Frederick strasenburgh. He was born in north leith in 1824 and moved to southshields where he gained his master's certificate on 3rd november 1852. I do know that he was master of 2 briggs in his career " GEM " and  " LAWSONS ".
During my research i have discovered that he died at sea but i would love to know more about how he died and on what vessel. I do know that the event occured 25 september 1862.
best regards
RICHARD

I cannot find an official death at sea for him. However he was captain of the LAWSONS in 1862
His certificate number was 7512. If you have ancestry there should be details there. If not copies on Micro film at TNA piece BT122/9
The brig LAWSONS was built in Sunderland in 1837. Official number 22910 244 tons owned by Nicholas Grey, Church Row, South Shields.
Her logbooks and crew agreements for 1862 will be at NMM Greenwich if anywhere. You can obtain
with this form.
http://www.rmg.co.uk/researchers/library/crew-lists-agreements-and-official-logs-request-form
He should also have records in Lloyds Captains Register held by London Metropolitan Archive. Should give his entire  seagoingcareer as Master and Mate.
It would appear that LAWSONS was a regular trader to the Baltic.

Lloyd's register of shipping 1861 & 1862 have your ancestor as captain of LAWSONS undertaking Baltic voyages.
The logbooks from NMM will give precise details.
Also a newspaper search may give details
