Hi Ken,
Thanks for getting in touch. My grandfather's death certificate stated that his father was John Thomas Conway, seaman deceased. When I did a search I found a John Thomas Conway was a mate on the Success, however having just obtained my gfathers military records it shows he enlisted with the Cameronians in May1895 and was 18. These dates don't tie up unless he was lying about his age! So it looks like I was on the wrong track. I did get in touch with the Maritime History Archives in Newfoundland which were very helpful. Thanks for the interest.
Regards Frances
