Hello,

Joseph may have been at sea in 1841 - I have no details of the vessels he served on or when he retired.

Eliza is unmarried so please see if Eliza SEYMOUR(E) b. abt 1809 Plymouth can be found in 1841. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello,

I was looking for a HOWARD. I found one but he was born 1832 so he can't be the one involved with Catherine PERDRIAU.

Curiously, the list does not include Admiral Sir George Brydges RODNEY.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Brydges_Rodney,_1st_Baron_Rodney

The PERDRIAU family friend who managed to get Stephen into the RN at age 12 as a Captain's servant.

Regards,

Dave
