      I wonder do you have anything on the sea going of Nathaniel Leslie who was born 4th or 5th March 1832 in Peterhead.
      He was second mate on the Royal Saxon in 1855 when it docked in Australia but I know he was a ships captain or Master Mariner before 1872 when he was married in London.  I believe he served as Master of the "Arabia" in 1871 and the "Nereus" at some time.

      I have census information on him in Peterhead from in 1841 and later in the area around the River Tees and then in Rora in 1881 where he died soon after.

      Any information would be greatly appreciated.
