Looking for Daniel Samuel Hunt a 'Sea Captain'
« on: Friday 05 April 13 21:31 BST (UK) »
Hello,
Daniel Samuel Hunt, a 'Sea Captain', when and where born unknown.  A possible marriage is to a Sarah Jane Brandon Q3/1874 7a/974 Caistor, Lancs.,

I believe their daughter was Mary Emmett/Emmitt HUNT was born 1878 Caistor, Lincs.

On 05 Dec 1897 Mary married (age shown as 21 but if above is correct, she was 19) William Henry Joseph Garrard at St Barnabas, Rotherhithe, Surrey and her brother Samuel Daniel Hunter married in the same church in 1900.  They were witnesses at each other nuptials and both showed their father to be Daniel Samuel Hunt a 'Sea Captain'

What I have been unable to locate is Daniel, his (possible) wife Sarah Jane nor the above with any other possibly siblings on C1881 or 1891 though I have tracked daughter Mary (person I am interested in) on subsequent census and previous thread on Roots Chat.

Any assistance much appreciated, locating census records and birth of DSH and marriage, thanks.

Unfortunately, Surnames beginning with the letter "H" are not on the on line index for Lloyd's Captains Register. This register can be viewed at London Metropolitan Archives. There is also an index of Captains 1845 - 1854 in the series BT114 at the national archives. Also BT127 may be of help

I understand copies of certificates of service and competency are available on Ancestry.com.
He could have been Captain/Skipper of a fishing boat. If so you need to look at the series BT138 at Kew.

He probably owned or skippered a fishing vessel and thought Sea Captain sounded better.
