He joined the Royal Navy as an Ordinary Seaman on 5th July 1828 at Chatham. His Majesty's ship Crocodile's papers describe him as a Painter by trade, 5 ft 2 inches in height, of fair complexion and with Dark Hair and Eyes.

I won't post the full story but Andrew was discharged in Sydney from HMS Crocodile in 1829. Somehow a convict got hold of the discharge papers and used them and Andrew's name to marry.
:eek:

I bet that caused some problems :eek:

Yes. The convict remained at large for several years before being found out and charged before the court.

Andrew named a son Peter.

Thanks Geoff.

I have not seen Asplin in any of the names I have. The only odd one I have as a first and for another a middle name, is Newman.

A painter married the daughter of a house painter

We have gone off on a tangent but well short of post #64.
Yep, still some leeway to catch up :biggrin:

I suppose we have to try and work out why Flood, there's no obvious marriage, though she was only abt 19y when she mar. Andrew :rolleyes:

It's not an error in the index becasue it is Flood on the film of the church register. That is a Volume past 123 so it's from a different set of films. A set that is a true copy of the register. The Vol 1 - 123 set of films is a copy of the form, with some details from the register, that the church had to send to the Registrar General.

I can't look it up at local library but it is RC St Mary's Sydney - same church as Andrew & Sarah.

72/1823 V182372 128 FLOOD PATRICK DONOVAN MARY LD
74/1823 V182374 127 FLOOD PATRICK DONOVAN MARY LD

Next time I get to the Mitchell Library I'll browse the film of the marriage register. That might have to be early May. I'm very busy for the next 3 weeks.
