I sent you a message but for some reason it didn't go!
You are a rare breed managing to access the PRO site. I've tried several times - got through once but then lost it. No-one else that I've spoken to has actually got through!
I was doing a search of Cappleman's and wouldn't be surprised if the missing link in the Jenkinson line (the original ones who came to Filey in the mid 1700's ) is a Cappleman. Wm Jenkinson married Mary Cappleman 3 May 1748 at Hornsea. Their first child was born in Filey in 1749! Maybe they are the elusive Jenkinson link??
I've got all the 1841 - 1891 censuses on a database and added nicknames to the 1891 and rectified any errors. I am now with the new Filey Coble Preservation Society and am putting all the vessels, registrations, skippers, crews, disposal etc onto another database. This will be going online in various stages as it is enormous - but will give interested family historians an insight into their ancestors occupations at sea and whether or not they drowned.
I've got a few photos including Ian's gt grandmother who was Mary Cappleman born 1849 also Bob 'Ush' and his wife Mary. Bob Ush was Robert Cappleman and married a Colling. It is a superb photo of Bob and was taken at the latter end of the 19th century at 13 Queen St Filey (the old fishermen's cottages that were demolished)
Hope you're keeping well, you seem to be very busy.
You can access the coble site via www.fileybay.com - (I find it easier to remember)
Keep up the excellent work
