East India Company? Looks like one may have sunk in 1803 and another built?

Cumberland / Re: History of Kirklinton

I am looking for as much info as poss. Normally the VCH (Victoria County History) books are pretty good but the Cumberland one seems to be a work in progress. Both the Hugo Fox pdf and Magna Britannia: Volume 4, Cumberland are pretty slim on info.   

Thanks anyway.

There doesn't seem to be a VCH entry for Kirklinton yet so what has been published re its history in the late medieval/early tudor periods?

Armed Forces / Re: Royal Navy Lieutenant was superceded in 1769

Check the Pay Book and Captains Log to see if there is anything else there. If my memory serves me correctly there should be a section at the rear which gives details of arrivals and departures from the ship.

Also, how old was the Lt? Perhaps it should say "superannuated" which amongst other things could mean he was retiring due to ill health or age.

This doesn't mention supercession either but details the Seniority List system:

Were there any lodges in the east of Berks in the 1800s and do they have any surviving records?

The Common Room / Re: An alias on a Catholic marriage record

He could have been born illegitimate and baptised as Thomas Brennon. People hung onto their baptismal name by using an alias in case they needed to prove they were elegible for parish relief from their birth parish.
