- Hello Wade,
This is asking quite a lot of you but, could you (When you get a chance) send me the details for the following seamen ? :
COAPER WILLIAM (106349) - Actually this surname is usually COUPER. This is an ancestor in my wife's family tree.
DUTHIE JAMES (106330)
Geddes JOHN (106301)
Martin ROBERT (106371) - Whaling Captain, but not sure if same family as "my" Martins
Philips ALEXANDER (106306)
Smith THOMAS (106386)
Many Thanks & Kindest Regards
- Hi Wade , A belated "Thank You" for all the Seamans Ticket Info I asked you for.
When you get a chance, could I also get the info for :
Alexander McPherson (106317).
Thanks also for the John Martin info (Taurus). Precious little information on it other than his year of birth and the fact that he could write.....but that's not your fault, of course. Nevertheless it's interesting to me.
- Is this information on the Seamen's tickets available for different
years? Is it organized like a census, i.e. every ten years, or was it
I seem to recall that the list you were quoting from was 1840s, but I'm
after similar info. from the 1850s and 60s.

system was unpopular and was abolished in October 1853. Register of
Seamen, Series III (BT 116), 1853 to 1857, gives their ages, places of
birth and details of voyages (ship's name, date and port of departure),
together with their existing ticket numbers (if any). This was
discontinued in 1857 and you need to use Agreements and Crew Lists after
Series III has also been filmed by the LDS, you will need to look at
Locality Catalogue under Great Britain, Merchant Marine for the film
