Lesanne,
Thanks for the offer.
I don't think I could burden you with any request for my GG grandfather c1801.
It would involve looking on Mariner's lists up to 1851 as his wife was a Master Mariners widow by then.
It's possible I'm visiting my d'ter in Walton on Thames later this month so may make a visit then.
You could help by pointing me in the right direction, so I don't waste loads of time going down the wrong track.
Many thx
Dave

I would appreciate if you could look up the name Alexander Dill. We think he was a Master Mariner of a ship called Enderley. We don't know anything else, especially what company he worked for and if he worked on any other vessels.
Thanks in advance

Hi Kirsten
He's not on the list of Liverpool Pilots.
Master Mariners were Masters (or Captains) of Merchant ships trading either in the Home or Foreign trade. Knowing that he was on a ship called the 'Enderley' could be of some help in your rsearch.
You could try Google or this site which gives advice on searching for Master Mariners www.mariners-l.co.uk/UKMasters.html
For my own part, my GG Grandfather was a Master Mariner c1800. I have experienced extreme difficulty trying to trace him, or his birthplace, until last Friday when I visited the NRO at Kew.  There I found an entry for several voyages he made between 1836/1840 and the ships that he sailed on. Well worth the journey from the North West.
Best of luck
Dave
PS perhaps you could post on Rootschat but be more specific, such as:-
Help!! Ship 'Enderley', the year, Captain Alexander Dill and see what replies you receive.

Dave, I have quite a few Pilots in my family tree and recently visited the Maritime Museum, but time was limited and didn't check a date of birth in the Pilot Character Book for one of them.  Would you be able to look in your book for me please to see if his year of birth is given so that I confirm I have the correct information:

William Rowlands [b. 7 May 1795]
Licensed: 30th May 1817
Died: 29th January 1831

Your help very much appreciated. 

Regards,
Lyn :)

Hi Lyn,
Unfortunately neither of the books I have show his DOB.
All that's recorded is licensed in 1817 and died of a disease of the brain in 1831.
It's possible that you didn't note it because it wasn't recorded.
I might be visiting Albert Dock w/b 17th so, if I do, will look for his DOB for you.
Whenever I visit a RO I never seem to have enough time !!
Kind regards
Dave

Hello Dave, Thank you ever so much for looking him up for me, I'm very grateful.  Also for your offer to look in the Pilot Book for me on your next visit, but I do understand how quickly time passes - I will try to get back to Liverpool again this year, in the meantime, many thanks once again.
Kind regards
