Robert Brock in 1851
« on: Monday 20 September 21 10:34 BST (UK) »
Given the gaps in the 1851 census this is possibly a vain hope, but perhaps someone could find him.
Robert Brock was born in Stainforth near Doncaster c.1814.  I can first pick him up in 1861 when he is master of a Humber keel called "Carrier" moored in the Old Harbour in Hull.  Ten years later he is on a keel in the Stainforth canal with his wife Mary (born in Beverley).  It would be very useful to find him earlier.

There's a Thomas Brock (age 40) with wife Margaret A Brock (age 38, Barton, Lincs) in the 1851 census. Wrong first name, I know, but he's a "ship owner" from Stainforth. Living in Hull.  :-\

Or is this fellow a brother of Robert?

That's an interesting idea, I'll follow it up.  In 1861 Robert has as his mate a George Thomas Brock, not described as his son, so there could very well be a family relationship.  Life on the keels certainly was a family business.
