red mail George Steadman
I am looking for details of the origins of George Steadman, a ship agent and general wheeler-dealer (quite a successful one) who lived in Cannon Street Road in the early 1800s. He was born in about 1755, but I do not know where or who his parents were. He married Sarah Roberts in 1796 in Westminster. She was born in 1766 and died in 1850. The 1841 census says she was not born in Middlesex, but it says the same for her son, and he was. That son, George, was christened in 1798 in St Andrew Holborn, but married in 1812, so I presume he must have been born a couple of years earlier. The next generation down was George Thomas Steadman, born in 1812. He became a solicitor, which makes me wonder if there is any connection with James Farrar Steadman, a prominent solicitor of the early 1800s.
red mail William Lowrie
I am looking for information about the birth of William Lowrie, a copper plate printer, who was apprenticed to Joseph Gadd in Dean's Court, St Martin le Grand in about 1780. His marriage licence application states that there was no baptismal record for him because his parents were dissenters. The burial record when he died in 1832 suggests that he was born in about 1763-4. He may be the brother of John Clavering Lowrie, the son of Alexander Lowrie and Mary Clavering; John was a clockmaker's apprentice in about 1780. Alexander married Mary in Saint Botolph Bishopsgate on 20th April 1760. The clockmaker's guild apprenticeship records for John C Lowrie show that in 1780 he was a gardener in Hackney. Any further information about William's origins or about Alexander would be most welcome.

red mail HUMAN BALLOON - Daily Chronicle 1925
I recently received a newspaper article from a very helpful and generous Australian researcher regarding one of my ancestors. The article was printed in the Western Mail, Perth on Thursday 5 February 1925, page 21 and also in the London Daily Chronicle which later became the Daily Mail. "MAN BLOWN OVERBOARD" How John Edward Nelson, a seaman of the White Star Liner "Adriatic" was lost in mid Atlantic was decribed by the commander Captain F E Beadnell (reports the London "Daily Chronicle") "We met terrific seas and a wind of 80 miles an hour" said Captain Beadnell "Nelson was on deck securing a lifeboat when the ship gave a lurch, and this allowed the wind to catch his oilskins. His clothing filled out balloonwise and Nelson was lifted into the air and carried overboard. In the enormous seas it was impossible to lower a boat. To have attempted to rescue Nelson would have involved the fruitless sacrifice of other lives" Can anyone in the London area assist here please, with perhaps a search of Daily Mail Archives for a copy of the article and even, perhaps an Inquest Report??? Apparently, the death was not registered in Western Australia, nor have I found it registered in Liverpool where John Edward was born. Would so very much like to obtain a copy Lynda
