Hello Dave
Wonder if you could do a look up for me as well. Unfortunately his name is WILLIAM JONES  :(  I know from research online that there are (or should I say were) quite a number of William Jones's as Pilots around 1865.

The details I have from his marriage certificate to my ancestor Mary Lees in 1865 are:

William Jones age full, occupation Pilot, address Virginia Street, Liverpool,  Fathers name William Jones, occupation Master Mariner.
Witnessed by John and Ellen Ward.

I think the Jones family originally came from PORT MADOC.

Any help much appreciated
Jean

Hi Jean
I am in Italy at the moment but will be home on Wednesday 8th, so will be only too happy to look up Wm Jones then, if that's OK with you?

Hi Dave

Jean McGurn posted her William JONES on Celia's thread back in April this year, she and I (Jean, that is) subsequently corresponding in some depth about him on another list to which we both subscribed at the time.
If I'm not mistaken, I identified her man in Youde as :-

JONES W (xi)
Born 1840 [Portmadoc]
Licensed 1861
Died 1882

I promised Jean I'd try to look him up in the Pilot's Character Book next time I was in the vicinity of Albert Dock, but with so much going on in Liverpool this year (and invariably having visitors in tow each time I've been there) I haven't as yet been able to oblige.
Still have it in my notebook as a "to do", so would appreciate it if you'd let me know if you propose to have a look in the PCB yourself, so I can cross it off my list?

Regards
Gordon

Hi Gordon
I'm away most of October so not in the immediate future.
There is a slight possibility I may be in the Albert Dock area towards the end of November, but nothing delinite as yet.

Hi Dave,
Thanks for continuing where Celia left off. A great job by both of you.
When you get chance could you look see if a Joseph Edward Wood is amongst your pilots. Birthdate approx 1840.
Many thanks. Lesanne.

Lesanne,
There is an Edward Woods listed, dob1832, qualified as an Apprentice Pilot in 1864.
Looks like he retired in 1905 and died the same year? Probably too old to be still a serving Pilot at 73 but then, was possible I suppose.
If this is the same person you are looking for a more detailed record of his service can be found in the 'Pilot Character Book' at Merseyside Maritime museum, Albert ock, Liverpool.
