    Joseph was born in 1928 according to the NY death index, well after this George died. It's apparently a common surname in the Caribbean.

        It has been mentioned that Dora may have had up to 4 children by different fathers. You must admit they are a very interesting family. My thanks to everyone for your help. I may have found one more conviction for George Alexander Nedd on Ancestry for indecent assault. I ignored it at first but after all that I have seen it must be mine.
        Once again thank you
        Regards

            Hello Mel and welcome to the forum
            So which of them was your 2g grandfather - I assume you mean seaman George who married Dora Miners?
            I've had a re-read of the thread and found I still have the email and attachments I sent to Ann (aka Golden Oldie) as mentioned in posts 9 and 15 if you would like them.
            In your shoes, I would definitely buy the Nedd- Miners marriage cert, which should hopefully enable you to go back a further generation, via their respective father's names and occupations on the marriage cert.

            Good luck with further hunting!

                Send me a PM with your email address and I'll dig it out. I'm never quite sure how soon new members are allowed to PM others, so if you can't PM me, just say on the thread. But don't post your email address in the thread - that's definitely not allowed!

                      The Admiral was registered in Banff, Aberdeenshire.
                      I've just done a bit more digging and found this re the Admiral (I love the people who put sites like this together!)
                      https://www.crewlist.org.uk/data/vesselsnum/84372
                      Also within this site:
                      https://www.crewlist.org.uk/data/vie...=Sail&page=274

                      I was struck by the fact that the ship was lost on the exact same date that George Nedd was supposed drowned. So there would have to be a newspaper report, wouldn't there? Cue more digging. It seems there were violent storms on that date

                      My FMP sub expired just a few days ago, so I can't view the full articles, but found these thumbnails. Click on the left sidebar to filter for articles in Nov and Dec 1893.

                      You can see the search terms I used, but there might be better search terms to use once someone has managed to read the articles in full. The article which mentions the master, Alexander King, looks promising.

                      Perhaps someone will be kind enough to attach one or more of the most detailed articles - I'm sure they would make for interesting reading!

                      Christine

                      PS I've just done a further search with search terms Alexander King and key word Banff, and can see enough in the thumbnails to see that George Nedd is recorded as Needs, married, Ipswich.

                        The reports all look similar, with not much to report other than it is feared it is lost. maybe some later, will look in a while

                        I have put one here as not sure Melee will see if I put on the forum, as too new

                          They aren't very detailed I'm afraid, Mel.

                            thanks every one ! Every thing fits nicely except I’ve found another family tree with George and Dora on ancestry , but George’s birth Place is listed as Worcestershire . It’s the same one as every thing else matches . The family tree belongs to a Michael keeble . Not sure if his or mine is correct , any ideas how to go forward
