Occupation Interests / John Henry James Master Mariner
« on: Monday 30 August 21 19:22 BST (UK)  »
Good Evening,

My 3 x great grandfather, was a Master Mariner, he was born in 1821, in Milford Haven, I think he was in the RN, before being in the Merchant Navy, in the MN I;m guessing he would of worked his way up from being a mate. His masters certificate is 6767, and Mates certificate is 62.125

He married in Liverpool in to Johanna Poulson in the mid 1840s.

He ship the Catherine Porter shipwrecked of the Dublin coast in 1867, and John drowned, how would I find more of his seafaring career.

thanks for any help, I don't know where to begin, do I go to the Greenwich Museum or The London Archives for more information?

Good Morning.

My 4 x Great grandfather John Murphy born late 1790s in Cork was a silk dyer living in Hudsons Court in Shoreditch in 1851, when he married in 1837 in St Leonards Church Shoreditch, a Daniel Murphy was a witness, I've found a Daniel Murphy a dyer and  family living in Bowl Court in Shoreditch in 1841, are they two places close together, and what are the chances both men are related, both around the same age,

I can't find John earlier than 1851.
