Subject: Sheerness and living on the Hulks


> Hello Colin
> I don't know if you remember me, we wrote to one another about 10 years ago.
> My interest was and is with the Barrows and Skey families who worked in the
> Dockyard.  I recently visited your "new" web site and saw your piece on
> families living on the hulks.  I notice that one of the families mentioned
> is the Barrows.
> As you suggested, I have tried a PRO Catalogue search but have not as yet
> managed to pinpoint the list.   I have to say that I really
> enjoy revisiting your site.  If you are interested, I have written up my
> story of the Barrows family on my web site
> and also the Dockyard's link
> with Trafalgar
> Anyway, I hope that you may be able to help.
> Best Regards
