Thomas Gray's Will
- For Gwen :
I only have some scribbled details which I recorded when I looked at
Thomas Gray's Will a few years ago. Basically I was scanning it for
any detais of ship ownership. The details I have are :
Date of Will : Nov.7th.1857.
"Shipmaster in Peterhead and Melbourne
Executor: Thomas Robertson formerly Peterhead, now 4 Bedford Place,
Waterloo. Chemical Works, Northampton.
On board the "Warbler" at Liverpool (About to sail for Melbourne).
Owner of the "Warbler" : Thomas Gray".
It would be possible to purchase a copy of the Will from the
Scotland's People Website. I looked at it in the National
So, he may well have been buried in Peterhead if he died at Liverpool
prior to him planned voyage.
Hope this may be of some interest to you.
