As captain/master they can be tracked through the shipping reports of the period. What papers do you have access to (Trove apart)? Do you have access to The National Library of Australia - which has a range of English newspapers (Gales/The Times).

The National Archives has been mentioned and there are records on FindMyPast which reflect the NA (as mentioned pre 1835 a bit limited).

Are you familiar with Lloyds Register/Lists - again for master/captain only?.


I guess I should have been more specific in my original post.
Yes, I was being ďpoliteĒ. My original post explicitly states what I am askingÖ
Strange - i thought I had cancelled my response - hence the response carries no message on my part.
i wasn't searching to provide you with info you already knew. As mentioned earlier I was looking for info to tease out any reference to your rellie outside his trips. Hence did not mention name tho' easily found from info posted. The 4 year gap twixt Trove 1810 and "apparent" appearance in London 1814/15 is intriguing.
Pl do not respond to this post.

To give you an idea about the length of the journey.

Somewhere in my files, I have a 19th century advert by a sailing ship's owner.   The journey from Aberdeen to London was six hours by sea.  The North Sea down the east coast of the UK is quite a treacherous ocean.   

From Glasgow through the Irish Sea down to Cornwall could probably take the same amount of time or a bit longer with a fair wind.

Roughly 500 miles port to port? Average speed 80mph or 70 knots an hour?

I wouldn't know about speed - I found this pertaining to a large sailing ship with about 12 sails.:

"..If you ask how many nautical miles can you sail in a day, you should know that on average, sailboats can sail up to 100NM (that is 115 miles or 185km) in one day when they run downwind..."

1 knot = 1 nautical mile. The 19th century ship advert was claiming it would average 70 nautical miles per hour.
Tracking the passage of the steamship coaster City of London it took 3 days Aberdeen to London - year 1849.
Need to track a sailing ship .

How much are you willing to bet,--A pint of "Felinfoel's Double Dragon"

John

John,
Oh dear, I was torn about introducing the betting angle and its not being there and, of course, it has come back with a vengeance to bite me on the backside. I suppose it's also a fair reflection of my gee gee betting.
As for "Feelin' Foul's** Double Dragon", sampled one or two yesterday. You'll be having a wee dram perhaps? Send me the bar bill.

** - doesn't reflect the quality of the brew, just our affectionate name for a much loved tipple.
regards

Your search doesn't lend itself to popping a search key into an engine and out pops lots of lovely hits for "your" rellie. It's going to have to be teased out.
Had a peep at FindMyPast merchant seamen's records and 3 sailors of that name - but not yours by age.
I've identified your rellie and started checking the on line newspapers. However, where I was working this PM. had very poor response times but now back home and revisiting. Did you find only 1815/1816 references? Sure I spotted 1814 and possibly 1813. So which papers are you checking (FindMyPast/BNA?).

Canada / Re: "Goyer Phare" - Nova Scotia - did he exist?

To add to the 2 baptisms, John Phare's occupation in each is given as "Yeoman". Following the 1820 marriage I can only see the baptisms of Maria and Mary.

Hanes, thank you for that link. A quick search brought up not only the marriage record, but also Honourís baptism record from 1792. I will explore it further. Those being transcripts, I wonder if the images are available on Ancestry.

Rena, thank you for that information, the journey seems reasonable. I would imagine overland by horsecart would take longer.

Jebber, thatís something Iíve been pondering before I dig into another line of family that supposedly came to Scotland from County Down, which is now in Northern Ireland but of course they came before the division. Thatís for another day, but I wonder if that complicates the search.

Transcripts are available at Familysearch, FindMyPast and the OPC site I referred you to - but not sight of the originals. As a betting man my money's on Ancestry delivering the same.
