John Tate or Tait
In Berwick in the late seventeen hundreds John Tate was apprenticed to a Grocer John Bird. At a later date he joined the Royal Navy, and in 1807 he married Mary Lewin in Prittlewell, Essex. In 1827 he was lost at sea when his ship went down off Greenland and I am trying to find out more of John's earlier life, including who were his parents. If anyone has any information on John Tate, or even Grocer John Bird, I would be glad to hear from them.

red mail Where are you John Douglass?
Looking for John Douglass, possibly father of Robert (1814-1847) Robert's eldest son called John suggests that this may be Robert's father's name. I cannot find any parents or siblings for Robert but his second daughter called Isabella Skelly Douglass suggests that Robert's mother may have been Isabella Skelly. I am relying heavily on the naming pattern used extensively in this and the Skelly family. I speculate that Robert's father John may have been born 1790. The area is a minefield of Douglas(s) Suggestions/help would be most appreciated. Paddy.
