JOSEPH  TOLLET -   -   -                  BT112


BT112/69:

TOLLET Joseph (a)  45 Hemford

Lists 8 References to Voyages beginning with Choice 3/36 and ending with Neptune Dec 38

Wasn't sure how to interpret the letters above each voyage and the FindMyPast Merchant Seamen Abbreviations lists didn't help me much.


England:  Archer, Bailey, Bates, Blower, Bosworth, Court, Hicklin, Orton, Palmer, Robbins, Sedgwick, Smith, Stevenson, Stone, Varnam, Wakelin, Walker

JOSEPH Tollet ... b. 1799 Wexford    ref# BT120


BT120/5:

TOLLET Joseph (a) 45 H..ford / Mariner / Choice of Exeter / 21 March 36

The age is given as 36 on the transcription resulting in a birth year of 1799 but when you look at the actual record the age is 45 giving a birth year of 1791.

The birth place is transcribed as Wexford but even though the original is unclear it looks more like Hemford.

The Choice references for 1836 match so it looks like both references are the same man.

Thanks for looking. The other fellow appears to use John Joseph so that's likely the same J.J.  so doubt they'd change that in the death at sea...
Did you look at this one ?..

He seems to be in Adelaide in 1854 and returns home in 1855 - so that lets him out. I've tried a few other name variations but so far nothing that looks very likely. Let me know if there are others you wonder about.

yeah, just grasping at straws now, frustrating. Am wondering why all show clearly on both lists except Joseph...

Joseph Tilt  Event Type   Military Service  Event Year Range   1853-1857

Birthplace   England  Birth Year 1833
    BT116/93:   Joseph TILT age 23

    Very hard to read the writing on this Joseph Tilt register entry, but the last column filled in is Home, 1856. So not him either.

    Haven't quite given up yet - have seen so many transcription errors makes me think there's still a chance he might turn up with some creative thinking ;)

Good for you, sami, I agree...that's why I shot in the dark, you never know...I'll sleep on it.

Maybe you'll have it all solved before I get back.  :) J.J.

Well, I've tried all sorts of variations beginning with T / F / J / L / H / and looking something like T*ll*t or even just **ll*t.

No luck - too bad you can't search by the Reg. Ticket number.

I'll give it a think - but at this point I've run out of ideas. Hope you weren't counting on it being solved before you got back JJ  ;D

Can't believe it but:

BT114/11: (1845-1854)

Jos JALBERT, birth country Canada, Quebec, No. of Register Ticket: 100012

Quite a stretch from Tallat but the Register Ticket matches.

.........added.......after having slept on this and looking at it again I'm wondering if it should be more like Talbert than Jalbert. I'll keep looking - would like to find something that gives an age.
