    Default Hello,

    Hailing from inland Yorkshire port but am searching for background on a seaman from Kent
    HENRY GEORGE WELLARD, BORN 1876, served aboard the Gull Stream Light Vessel 1901.
    Married 1911, moved to Goole.
    Recorded in Merchant Seamen archives 1918-1921.
    Would like to know which vessels he crewed during his seafaring years.
    Any background relating to Henry W's service/vessels/ports would be appreciated.

    Hello, Sorry to say, I don't have any family connection with the seafaring fraternity. My interest comes from recreational boating with a father who wished he could have been a naval architect, but the slump between the two world wars put a stop to that. We were living in a port town during its busy shipping times, when dockland was free to wander across. This enquiry is about one family man who I never knew but his move from Kent to W.R. Yorkshire probably came through seafaring. Thanks for getting in touch, however.

    Wonderful! That's the man, but I didn't get to find his CRS 10, showing his ship name!
    I have found the National Archive record you show, with his photograph, and had been trying to guess his movements between leaving Kent and living at Goole. I can now search the connection, as the Saltmarshe was a vessel name known to me as a Goole registration, named after the small hamlet on the north bank of the Yorkshire Ouse, some few miles down-river, on the East Riding/Howdenshire riverside. Many thanks for this great link to my detective work! A quick name check shows it was one of the small locally-owned shipping fleets In their time, many masters (both sail and steam), engineers, and shipping clerks lived in the street where I moved on marriage and I've got a filing cabinet full of recorded notes, before the internet began, after hours of micro-fiche, library work, and haunting the local cemetery to read gravestones. I shall now have another thread to explore the connection between Thanet and the Yorkshire Ouse.

    The smaller shipping company I mentioned may have owned the Saltmarshe after the Lancs & Yorks. Railway Co. Weatherall I think.
