Hi, Can anyone help with William Roberts who was listed as a pilot in Liverpool in 1806 and later listed as a river pilot.

Thanks Joanne

Hi Joanne and welcome to Rootschat. In the list in "Beyond the Bar" there is nothing that early for a William Roberts. The earliest one was licensed in 1827 and died in 1829. There's another who was licensed in 1832 and died in 1833.

Hi Shaun J,
Thank you much for checking.  He was listed as a pilot on marriage and two birth certificates in 1805 and 1806. 
In a 1809 birth record he was listed as a boatsman.  He lived in Plumb St, Liverpool at this time. (I cant find it on google maps) but the records are for St Nicolas and St Annes Church) Are there other types of pilots he could have been? What is a boatsman?
I have to check whether he was dead by 1830 when he was listed as a river pilot. 

I have really enjoyed reading the stories of Liverpool and the pilots.

Cheers Joanne (Perth WA)

You can see Plumbe Street on this 1851 map, between the I and V of LIVERPOOL

It ran from Key Street to Canal Bank - perhaps William Roberts was a boatman on the Leeds and Liverpool canal. There was a timber wharf at Plumbe Street.
