Re: Death date for Captain James Phillip Stewart

I'm trying to find the death date and story for Captain James Stewart (b1863, St Nicholas Aberdeenshire) who apparently (oral history) died at sea.

Any help finding the death date & any information of the ship under his command, and/or his career for James Phillip Stewart, b1863 would be most appreciated.

Have you consulted "Lloyd's Captains Register" available from London Metropolitan Archives?
This should tell you all the vessels he sailed on as either Master or Mate.
Read London Metropolitan Archives information leaflet 50 - Lloyd's of London "Captains Register's and related sources
https://www..gov.uk/search/results.aspx?k=lloyds%20captains%20register
I understand "Ancestry" has copies of Masters Certificates. If you could tie him down, the certificate will tell you his certificate number which is unique to him and will be a big help identifying him.
I guess you have looked the Deaths at Sea Registers on FindMyPast?

Excellent leads Seaweed. I'm not familiar with researching deaths at sea so all of these will be put to good use today as I search on.

I do have a Masters Cert for him. (At least I think it's him - darn that common name.)

Thank you for your direction.

 Between that and knowing from Ambly's find that his wife remarried before 1913, we've got the death period narrowed to 1901-1913.

Hopefully I'll find the date today.

Thank you again for the direction Seaweed.

I thought to check the pages before & after the Masters Cert & have confirmed by birth date that it is the James Stewart I'm looking for.

His Master's Cert number is 010944.

Now I'm off searching the databases you referenced to see where that number gets me. :)
