I can't seem to find a death record for Charles Edward Hayden Rowbottom. He was born about 1871 in Hull, Yorkshire. His father, Walter Hayden Rowbottom, was a fisherman. Charles, or "Charlie", also went to sea. Presumably, he served his apprenticeship with Henry Fernie & Sons where he was the "oldest" apprentice. I know that in 1891 he sat for second mate's ticket (I don't know where; a shipmate sat for his in Dundee, Scotland, but then that was where he was from). Beyond that I see nothing on him. Could it be he died at sea? Any help at all would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Hi,

In 1897 he also had a certificate of competency for first mate of a foreign going ship. Dated 18th Sept 1897.

This maybe worth looking into. FMP have a maritime death for a CE Rowbottom 1900.

Thank you, Julie, must have missed that one. I will have a look at it.

Re FMP - I had seen several records for possible matches. In the 1930s his brother spoke of him in the present tense (although given the reason for the article it could have been purposefully even if Charles was deceased by that time), so immigration is another possibility.
