thanks again Tom, will be checking out these links you have provided. I did a check on the grimsby trawlers site under the lost at sea and Samuel is not listed under the Ampulla. I am going to keep looking but am getting frustrated with the lack of time i have to do all this (i work full time and have two young kids) but I will NOT give up!!
thanks again, and your effort on my behalf has only inspired me even more! I will let you know how i get on..

Thanks so much Tom, for your info. I didn't have any details for Lucy's marriage -  i knew it happened but no data!!

I have some information that has been handed down through the family (rough attempt at tree) and I have received the admission documentation from Barnardo's (bless their record keeping!!) this is where i found out that Samuel was on the HMT Ampulla during 1918 and also why the boys were put into care. bit if a family scandal - but the mother (Mary alderson middleton) had been having an affair with a soldier whilst Samuel was away at sea. It turned out that the three youngest children were from the soldier  - not Samuel! So, Samuel put the three boys that were his into the care of Barnardo's "for the duration of the war" and his daughters were to live with female relatives. Then the two younger boys (Leonard and William) that were in care didn't hear from their father again and were sent to Australia as "apprentices".
It's all a bit sad, really.

My husbands own father passed away quite young 7 years ago, with no-one in the family knowing anything about Samuel. None of Samuel's grandchildren (my husbands aunts and uncles) know what happened to him. I am hoping to be able to fill that gap for them all (they are all in their 60's and 70's now)

thanks for the tip with Grimsby Central library - it is really difficult doing all of this from a laptop in Sydney!! I will attempt to email them. i have done all the relevant checks through war deaths, casualties etc but to know avail.

thank you for taking the time to look for me - it really is appreciated.

thanks again,

Sarah  ;D

thanks KGarrad and Geoff-E,  I suppose I was really just rambling in my original post - but as I am brand new to this format, please excuse me!  ;) What I am mostly after is any information (espec from long lost relatives!) about Samuel b. 1880 AFTER 1918. We don't know what ever happened to him and whether he had any contact with any of his children after this date. I am definitely going to keep plugging away at this mystery!

thanks for the reply Trish, the three children (Edith, Olive and John J) WERE part of the family - but the man I am after was not the father. their father was a soldier by the name of John Batty, but the mother was the same. I have no idea who the other kids were!!

Hi All,
I am researching my husband's paternal great grandfather. His name was Samuel Marshall, b 1880 in Grimsby. He married Mary Alderson Middleton in 1889. Samuel was working aboard the HMT Ampulla in 1918 and I cannot find a trace of him since. they had several children together: James Samuel (1901-1903), Louisa (1902), Elsie (1904), Lucy May (1905) Samuel (1906) Leonard (1907) and William (1908). Samuel, Leonard and William were all put into the care of barnardo's in 1918 and from what I can gather, the older children were kept with family in Lincolnshire. I am having a lot of trouble finding anything about Samuel (father) what with the frequency the name Marshall pops up for the area. I am in Australia and so getting to local records is pretty difficlu if they are not on the internet. any help of info would be greatly apprecaited!!
