MASTER MARINERS AND WIVES OF MASTERS LIVING IN WHITBY, NORTH YORKSHIRE 1851

The following table shows many of the master mariners recorded as living in Whitby in the 1851 census and similarly the wives of masters who were not at home on census night. It also records some of those who were in Whitby that night and who later became masters. Wherever possible I have shown the masters' certificate number as recorded in Lloyd's Captains Register of 1869 and, in the case of masters who obtained certificates of competency, the years and places of issue of their certificates. The list is not exhaustive but I hope it will be of assistance to some who are trying to trace masters. With a name, age and certificate number the full details of a master's career should be traceable at the PRO and/or the National Maritime Museum. For further details on tracing master mariner records please see my page on that subject which can be accessed from my Maritime site at http://www.glamorganfamilyhistory.co.uk/maritime/Site.html

For additional information on some of the masters listed please e-mail me at

Abbreviations in the table are:-

S = Certificate of Service

C = Certificate of Competency

Stm = Steam Only Certificate

Ex Stm = Excluding Steam
