My name is Bruce Johnstone Inglis. Will exchange info.

Father: David Lyall Guthrie Inglis b. Vancouver, BC, Canada

Grandfather: James Inglis b. May 4, 1876. Emigrated from Montrose, Scotland to Canada about 1895 (age 19 yrs) as ships cook on board the sailing ship "Aethelbert" along with his friend Pat Sinclair (ship's carpenter). They first jumped ship in Portland Oregon than traveled to Vancouver. Pat returned to Scotland. My brother David (Lyall) Inglis has a ship in a bottle made for James by Pat during the crossing. The ship is in a colored bottle because Pat could not get a clear glass bottle aboard ship.

Great Grandfather: David Inglis of Montrose. Died at sea as per artical from the MONTROSE STANDARD and Angus and Mearns Register Vol. XL NO. 2044 dated April 20, 1877. TE TOTAL WRECK OF THE SCHOONER GEORGE BROWN, THREE LIVES LOST. Those lost were Edward Edwards, seaman, native of Wales, David Inglis, seaman, Montrose left eight chlidren, Alexander Mollison, of Dundee, apprentice.
The article is very interesting and detailed.
