Europe / British nationals married in Hamburg
« on: Saturday 26 September 20 16:06 BST (UK)  »
On the family trees for a couple of my ancestors several people have noted that the couple in question married in Hamburg in 1850.  I have searched all over but am unable to find confirmation of this.  They are:
Francis J Moore, born 1813 in Monkwearmouth, Sunderland
Janet Gibb, born 1828 in Glasgow
Francis was a master mariner and sailed the Baltic coast routes delivering coal and industrial products. The firm he worked for, based in Hartlepool, had a regular weekly route to Hamburg so it is feasible he married there. The only other records I have found for him regarding being abroad(apart from his ships logs) is that his son, Francis J C Moore, was born in Visby, Sweden in 1857. On the Swedish baptism records the father is down as Francis Moore and the mother as  Jeanette Gilb.  Any assistance that be given to sort this would be much appreciated.

Durham / Sunderland Ship Owner 1880`s
« on: Wednesday 26 August 20 14:20 BST (UK)  »
HI all, I have been researching some family history for a friend and one of his relatives was a Henry David Dennis born in Great Yarmouth in 1851. He moved with his parents to Sunderland a few years later. His father was a master mariner, James Davey Dennis.  I have located many of his voyages via the excellent Crews list database,  Henry D Dennis is logged as a ship broker in the 1881 census and lived at 2 Ash Place, off Newcastle Road in Sunderland but also had his business premises at the Exchange Buildings on 195 High Street East in Sunderland. He then moved back to Norfolk around 1891. I have located 2 ships he was the owner off, The San Jose, ships number 29951 and the Resolute, ships number 62539. I have searched all over but have been unable to find any more information about any other ships Henry owned or even the name of his company.  Is anyone able to provide more information or guide me to where I might locate said info.  Many thanks for any help you can give in this matter.
