LFR May 15 Number 516




Welcome to the Laws Family Register. 

================================================================

My Mariner family

Henry LAWS 1800-1880 My Gt Gt grandfather was master of the following ships, the longest service being in the barque "Nautilus" from 1854 till his death in 1880 apart from
1864/5 when Lloyds lists in as being in the "Devonshire" he was either a
very skilful or a very lucky master to keep the same ship for so long. 


Can anyone tell me more of these ships and how although he was in receipt of a
pension from 1864 continued till he was eighty years old? 


NOTE from 1865 The name of the Master in Lloyds registers for the Nautilus is given as LAWS so which one was it?

listed
# 5 Feb 1874 Charge of drunkenness at sea - found Guilty 12 months ban
He continued his career as 1st Mate for his brother Robert Henry in the
"Woolhampton"


If anyone can tell me anything of any or all of these ships I would be most
grateful.

Oh! One more thing, when I was a teenager in the late 1950's there was a
shop in Whichmore Hill London that sold ship photo's I know its not there now, where is it?.
I'd love any pictures of these ships I have seen a portrait of the
Woolhampton which was hanging in my great aunts house in Fowey sadly it was
removed by her son about the time of her death and its whereabouts are
unknown as he is dead too.
