I should also check the information re the shipwreck There were two captains Alexander  one with the initial A and the other Patrick. Sorry but the date of the shipwreck quoted is 1858 unlikely Patrick as he left the sea after 19 years before the mast and migrated to Australia with his wife Mary and children Oliver and Mary on the SS Digby arriving 1n 1850 and would have been settled in Taradale at that time. Think that was the other Captain A Alexander. I have a Copper Printing Plate  used for printing his calling cards. Hoping to hear from the interested person  as we are trying to work out who it could be

Would dearly like to talk to the instigator of the enquiries re Cap't Patrick Alexander. You are obviously family. I am Patrick's Great Great Grandson My  Grandmother was Amy Parnell who was the daughter of John Parnell  who married Mary Eason. The Parnell side is extremely interesting. We know some about Patrick and still working on ships he sailed on. I have a second Cousin who is also the Great Great Grand daughter of Patrick Alexander who has done more work on the Banes - Harris etc
Would love to talk to you

The original enquiry was by Noy1818 who was last active on R'Chat on August 2020.  Perhaps you could try sending a Personal Message.
