Offer:Look-up Liverpool (Mersey) Pilots 1734/1990
« on: Wednesday 20 August 08 17:20 BST (UK) »
Celia has withdrawn her offer, so as a retired Liverpool (Mersey) Pilot I have a copy of John (PJH) Tebay's "List of Pilots - 1734 to 1990" in my possession. If anyone requires a 'look-up' I will be happy to oblige.

Hi

I am looking for a James Derbyshire Master Mariner who I assume worked out of Liverpool. I guess that he was born around 1775 and died before 1867. Not much to go on I know.  Married 1790 ish in Lancaster and one of his children baptised in Liverpool 1806  James is listed as master mariner on this parish record.

many thanks

Hi
Sorry, he's not on the list.
Master Mariners were usually in charge of vessels trading worldwide. On approaching a Port they would employ the services of a Pilot to guide them safely in.
Suggest you 'post' the question on the section dealing with Master Mariners.
Regards
Dave

Hi Davecigar - intersted in your book.   Do you have any rcord of Isaac Walton "Master Mariner" - reportedly captain of the steam tug boat Brilliant Star, in the 1800;s, I think.

Hi Kerry
No record, sorry.
If he was Captain of a tugboat he wouldn't be on the list of Pilots.
If he was Captain of the Great Eastern from Dublin to Liverpool he would have been obliged to employ the services of a Pilot to guide him safely into Liverpool.
As an aside, The 'Great Eastern' Public House in New Ferry, Cheshire has recently 'closed its doors' and is subject to a planning application for flats (apartments). The ship spent 3 weeks in New Ferry in the 1860's.

My Great Great Grandfather - Capt John Williams was a Master Mariner and River Pilot. He was married in St Peters, Liverpool in 1811 so I assume he was a Liverpool Pilot sometime during the early part of the 1800's. Is there any mention of him in your book?

Regards,
John.
