      I have had two further films in relating to seamen from Peterhead
      registered in 1845. The first one was men registered in London (LDS
      Film 1482515) who gave their place of birth as Peterhead - there were
      only nine of them, and they were:-

      William Lourie James Leslie John Forsyth
      Alexander Hutchinson Thomas Thomson John Mathieson
      George Henderson Mr. Duff Rae (or Rae Duff) William Catto

      As both William Leslie and I are researching Leslie ancestors, I�ll give
      James� description now:
      No: 32401
      Birthplace: Peterhead Date of Birth: 27 May 1827
      Capacity: Apprentice Height: 5ft 3ins
      Hair: Lt. Brown Complexion: Fresh
      Eyes: Blue Marks: None
      First went to sea as: Apprentice In the year: 1841
      Royal Navy: No Foreign Service: No
      When unemployed resides at: Peterhead
      Issued at : London On 4 August 1845
      Age when ticketed: 18 Can write: Yes

      As there were so few of them, I took down the details. However, on the
      next film (1482581), which was men registered in Peterhead, there were
      100 of them, so to hurry things along, I will just list their names and
      birthplaces. Of the men not born in Peterhead, nearly all of them gave
      Peterhead as their place of residence and, not wanting to be too
      selective, I took them all down.

      Whew! My next appointment at the Family History Centre is Thursday
      morning , 2nd September, so if anyone wants a look up, would you please
      get back to me fairly promptly, remembering that NZ time is 12 hours
      ahead of UK. It�s no trouble to look them up, and I think I will have
      the film for a little bit longer, but I didn�t check to see when it had
      to go back.
