Re: Merchant Seamen Apprenticeship Records 1815

Hi Andrew,
On his Seaman's Ticket of 1845, there is a question, "Has been in Foreign Service"?

Answer: Yes 2 years in the America..? Service.

The first bit of Americ is quite clear, there may be 2 or 3 letters after?

Regards

Colin

Merchant Seamen Apprenticeship Records 1815

Daniel Stewart was born in Irvine, Ayrshire, 20 May 1802, as noted on his Seaman’s Ticket in 1845. Sadly no birth record to confirm this. The record notes that Daniel sailed from Irvine Harbour, Ayrshire, Scotland (Port Number 56), to various ports in British waters, certainly between 1842 & 1847 an...

Re: Sneddon - Bo'ness & Alloa

I note that a number of Ancestry members are researching your Jane, some have not yet decided on her parents, others have and they have reached different conclusions. Two think Jane died in Airdrie in 1903.

Good luck, Clarkie

Re: Sneddon - Bo'ness & Alloa

The Janet you have born 1817 to Walter is the one I sent to you but IGI note the dob as 30 September 1822. As far as I know the family group for Walter & Euphemia (Various spellings) is complete. Walter only had one brother Alexander Snaddon born 5 Aug 1789, bap 10 Aug 1789. Their father was John. J...

Re: Sneddon - Bo'ness & Alloa

I'm not sure if this will help but my son in laws connection to the name Sneddon is through his fathers ancestors. In the period you mentioned, below is the family concerned, I managed to track this back to Walter Sneddon born Bo'ness about 1688, he married Catherine Lumsdale about 1715. Husband Wal...

Hi Lesley.
My apologies I intended posting in Seafaring, I did not realise until later that it was in People, tried to correct it but failed miserably.

Re: Registration of Seamen

Hi Alan,
Good to hear from you and thanks for the info.
Sadly no ship was mentioned on the BT120 and the name of the owner was difficult to read could be Till of Ayr?

Regards

Sneddon - Bo'ness & Alloa

I was born in England but I have lived in Scotland for nearly 40 years. Some time ago I researched my son in laws "Sneddon" ancestors. The line went back from Ayrshire to Lanarkshire and then to Bo'ness prior to 1815, with a possible line there back to about 1688. My grandmothers maiden name was Tri...
