That is fantastic Nell, it will all tie up.
I had some luck myself finding something for Kenneth born 8/2/1825 that says he deserted from Wellington NZ in 1860. He married Bridget Karney in Galway in 1844.
It seems Kenneth's son Thomas was born in Galway in 1849 and was also in the coast guard and there's something on this Thomas's family I found before. His son Kenneth was born around 1852 and was a lighthouse keeper, he also had 2 daughters that never married. Kenneth jnr married Emily Stevens-Sole - daughter of a lighthouse keeper - in 1880
I am hoping that when I order the marriage cert for Kenneth and Bridget there'll be no doubt left that they are the same family

So I think that record for Grace is the one you are looking for.

I thought that would be the easy bit to get a lead on the rest, got so much now since asking I don't know where to turn  ;D

Found Thomas Kerr born 24/4/1819 to Thomas Kerr and Grace McCulloch. Baptised 27/4/1819...

....in Portpatrick..wow they got around.

Haven't been able to locate a picture of a Bold (or modified Confounder) class gun-brig but the Shamrock was one of 18 in that class. also briefly rated as brig-sloops. 2 × 6-pounder bow guns
10 × 18-pounder carronades, a crew of 60, and a 70 ft keel/84 ft gun deck. My pirate ancestors can't have liked that  ;D

managed to download ADM_175/18  /19  & /100  some issue with downloading the others at the moment

Found it! Problem was her name wasn't really Grace, tbh I can't blame her for changing it.  :-X

Grizzal Kerr 25/6/1821 Portpatrick to Thomas Kerr and Grizzal McCulloch

Also found John Kerr born 1817 Portpatrick.
And the marriage of Thomas Kerr and Grizzel McCulloch - which I think might yet require a new topic to find someone that can read it  :-\

Thanks, when I've increased darkness and contrast I just end up with a smudged ink effect so I've messaged a request now, fingers crossed.
Had never heard the name Grizzel before, guess it is the equivalent of the Irish name Gráinne. I have also since found a baptism record for Grace McCulloch in Portpatrick 1793 (matching her age at death and place of marriage) - very likely to be my GGG'GM. Daughter of John McCulloch and Grizzel McCubbin
Still no joy downloading the other TNA files
