I don't think it's Bridget who is at sea  ???  That refers to her brothers James and William - at least that's the way i read it.

The way i can read it is that James and William at sea.  But it dosent give the fathers name and I think it was William as on the griffits evulation there is a william dignam living in the family home

That makes more sense :)  However you did say that "she is at sea", so I thought you were looking for Bridget  ;)

You could try asking about shipping records on the Ireland - General board, they would be the most knowledgable on here about the resources available :)
