Compiled by Michael Russell OPC for Fordington - April 2008 [49 Records]

Last updated January 2010     Link to Research Guide 'Merchant Seamen Registers of service 1835-1857'
Note:- All these Service Records are available at the National Archives website and can be ordered on-line for the usual fee of 3.50.
In each case the individual gave "Fordington" as his place of birth but many were baptised in nearby parishes.
Also the year of birth appears to have been calculated from age and in some cases would appear to be a year out.
