red mail GUTHRIE
i am looking for information/descendants on/of William Robertson Guthrie. said to be born in Edinburgh abt 1888.....we were told his D.O.B. was 5th march.....he served in the navy, sometime in the early 1900's....i have a picture of him in his uniform. The name of ths ship he served on was the HMS Shannon. The HMS Shannon served at the Battle of Jutland....i cannot find a list of crew for this ship, but i do know it was an armoured cruiser and it was commissioned in 1905....put into service in 1908 at Chatham, Kent, and decomissioned and sold for scrap in 1922. There is a story that he jumped ship, how true? i dont know. William married Mary Bisop nee Austin in 1935, they were living at 81 Campbell Rd, Islington, London. They actually got together in 1922, and had a few kids before they were married and a few more after. Their only son was born in 1926, at 79, Campbell rd, Islington. I was told he was married before he married Mary, and had a couple of sons to his first marriage, but i dont know how true this is. I have no details on the first wife, but was told the 2 sons were called Billy and Bobby, one was blind, and both boys emigrated to New Zealand, with their mother when they were small. After leaving the navy William had his own business as a steeple jack. He names his father as James Guthrie, steeple jack, on his marriage certificate. I would appreciate any info that anyone could possibly have or find.
