The Sea


This menu deals with the ships and shipping companies members of the family have been known to be connected with.

The early sailing vessels have been put on one menu as often they were not owned by a shipping company as such. Where a ship's name is mentioned in the text of a persons page it will be hyperlinked to take you directly to that vessel.

The "British" steamships on the India run usually had Australian/British officers and Indian crews. Some of the Hindi terms were used for the crew and a list of their jobs is available here.

There is also an explanation of sailing vessel rigs here, and a list of ship prefixes here.

This is a work in progress, I am trying to get at least some basic information on each page which will be expanded as I get the chance to transcribe the information to the site.

The majority of the vessels can be quickly accessed via the drop down menu by shipping company. There is also a full list below with clickable links.
