I have a "Certified Copy of an Entry in the Marine Register"
issued by the General Register Office for my relative who fell from the Gallant yardarm and hit the hatch and died instantly in 1884 while at sea. But he was not actually registered until the ship came back to England next year! The Peter Stuart(ship) I got details on it from "Lloyds Register:British and Foreign Shipping". It tells about all the physical facts about the ship. Precisely though, I had some paid genealogist look in BT 157/15 Register of Seaman's Deaths July- Dec. 1884. And BT 155/9 Names of Ships 1883-86. Index BT 153 Registers of wages and effects of Deceased Seamen 1852-1889. Good luck, Roy Grundy

Does anyone have any tips about finding records about a relative who is believed to have been lost at sea, probably from Liverpool. I want to know things like the name and type of ship, where it was going etc. ? Surname Bews
I'm also interested in any linked information for Corkill family, Varley family and Quine family also based in Liverpool.

Thanks in anticipation. Liz

My wife's grandfather was Corkille, the only family I know of here in the US. I do not know if the name survives today other than our son's middle name.

Can you contact me further as I am sure there is a connection. What was your grandfathers full name, place of birth, and spouses name. Cheers Robert( I have done considerable research and have plenty of info but have come to a bit of dead end recently hoping this is a break through.)

My father, William L. Quine came from a Manx family on his father's side, but was actually born in Hoylake, just south of Liverpool, home of his mother's family (Toulouse). Feel free to take a look at my public family tree and see if you find anything useful.

Hi Liz,

My gr-gr-grandfather was Evan CORKILL who was born on the Isle of Man in 1827. He was the 2nd of 10 children born to John and Esther (CORKILL) CORKILL. They were married in the Lezayre Parish in 1822, and their first child was son, John CORKILL, b1825. Both sons married women from Cumberland, England, but they raised their children in Liverpool. Evan and Elizabeth (QUAYLE) CORKILL (sometimes CORKHILL) had 7 children but one son died at 10. I think his brother, John, and his wife, had about 8 children.

Evan and Elizabeth's oldest daughter was Mary Elizabeth CORKILL, b1860 in Liverpool, and she became my great-grandmother. After Elizabeth's death ~1871, all the surviving children went to live in Canada. Evan was a mariner and was always - out to sea.

There is a CORKILL List, and I have posted about my ancestors on several Lists for 7-8 yrs.
