Hi All,
I'm looking for information about Captain Jas. Crewdson. He was born about 1844 and died about 1927. He was a ship's captain in the Ulverston area. His wife died in 1914 but I don't know her name. One of his ships was the Ann Crewdson so I wonder if Ann might be his wife's name. He also captaine two other ships the J. H. Barrow and the Mary Barrow. He had 6 children living at the time of his death. They were John Crewdson from Ulverston, an unnamed son from Pennsylvania, Mrs. Sam Wood (from Cark), Mrs. Lawrence (from Osset) and Mrs. Wilkin (from Barrow). I don't know any of the womens first names. All this information is coming from an article from the newspaper all about the Captain's death. The article also contained information on his grandchildren Ethel Crewdson, Mary Crewdson, Gladys Crewdson, and a nephew John Crewdson from Remsbothem. The Captain's sisters were Mrs. Taylor form Whitefield Manchester, Mrs. Mortimer form Broughton, Manchester, and Mrs. Eceles from Wigan. The Captain is buried in the Ulverston Cemetary. He was a Freemason and a member of the Grand Lodge of Ireland which he joined in 1861, and he was also a member of the Morecambe Lodge of Oddfellows, and the Mark Master Lodge #375 in Ulverston. I've tried to track down the illusive Captain through the "normal" online channels and am stuck. If any of the names or if his shipping connection rings a bell with anyone I'd love to hear from you.
