Thank you I knew he was a mariner but did not know the dates. It would be really great to know about his birth so I could find out his mothers name. I love finding everything out about are ancestry.

I must have mistaken Tynemouth on the marriage as
her baptism seems to appear in the Scilly Isles
born 21st October 1834 baptised the daughter of Henry and Jane 25th March 1835
