    Default Hello, I'm looking for Capt. William, Maurice Cossentine

    Hello everyone,
    I'm researching my family tree and was hoping to find more information about my grandfather, Richard Maurice Cossentine. He gained his Master's Certificate of competency in 1921 and captained several Elders & Fyffes after that. Has anyone got any family recollections?
    Thanks

    Hi Simon, Could you please give us your grandfathers dob and where born, and death date if known, for cross checking purposes. Is it his ships you are looking for, or do you have them already?

    Most likely: Maurice Richard Cossentine; year of birth, 1897; place of birth, Cornwall.

    Will wait for further info and confirmation.

    Keith.

    Added: Request is for info on Richard Maurice Cossentine, the thread Capt. William, Maurice Cossentine.
    Hope you will clarify. K.

    If Maurice Richard Cossentine; year of birth, 1897; place of birth, Cornwall is correct, the following may be helpful:

    1915.

    Ship: Coronado; Official number: 136350 - Maurice Richard Cossentine; rank/rating, Apprentice; year of birth, 1898.

    Slight difference in year of birth but not unusual.

    Added: Another record shows YOB as 1897: https://alpha.nationalarchives.gov.u...sation/Enfield

    If above is correct here is some info on him and his Ships.
    Cheers



    Think he was Captain of the Ship Manistee Elders and Fyffes Ltd around 1935 as well as the Aztec also Elders and Fyffes at that time

    Hi Keith, thanks for replying. You're right, I had forgotten that I posted an earlier request with the correct name. I'm looking for info on Capt. RICHARD Maurice Cossentine, not William.

    Hi Marian, Thanks for replying. I'm sorry, I've posted my request with the wrong name! I'm looking for info on Capt. RICHARD Maurice Cossentine, not William. He was born 24 Sep 1897 in Flushing, Cornwall and died in Salcombe on 26 Jan 1972. I have some info on ships, I know he was captain on the TSS Corrales for example. I know he went through the Panama Canal more than once. I'm really more interested in any recollections anyone might have of his sailing days or afterwards in Salcombe. Thanks :-)
