Thanks for putting me right. My mistake was to identify the entries for John/William and use the skip facility to jump in one fell swoop back to the 1st page of the ledger - which began with the the Stirling Castle. But by jumping back to the 1st page and moving forward page by page I suddenly arrive at the Leviathan records after which John/William appear.
A valuable lesson.
Thanks

Its only thanks to all the help Iíve received on Rootschat that Iíve more or less got to grips with navigating my way round these records now but its nice to be able to pass on the odd tip sometimes.
