Hi...

I found what looks like a (British) military shipboard record for a LYNCH, Henry Francis, Negro Carpenter, b.1838 in St. Michael, Barbados, and I am attaching the link to the file in this Post below if anyone else wants to have it...

(Windows: Right-click and select "Save Link As...", then save it to the directory you choose. You will need Adobe Acrobat Viewer to view it.)

I purchased it from the British National Archives.

If anyone discovers this and picks this up as their own family member, i would very much like to have a conversation with you. Please contact me through this web site (you can PM me at username bimjim or just start replying to this Post).

My greatest interest is how far back you managed to get in your research and who you found to be your earliest family member/s. I have many Lynch records in Barbados that are not directly connected to my line - I just recorded everything I found as I did research - so there is a good chance I can help you with your own research.

My earliest known relative is Hamlet Mayers Lynch, b.ca.1765.

A little early for my stage of research, however I have saved a copy (just in case!). I was interested in your post as one of Stanley Beresford LYNCH's sons, a boilermaker by trade, was also a seafaring man (even to Australia). I have searched the National Archives: Merchant shipping & seamen and Armed Services, but have not been able to find Stanley's son, or the Subject person, Henry Francis LYNCH. Would appreciate any assistance re the section / subject area you found henry please.

Hi...

The only assistance I can offer is that I got that out of the UK National Archives while I was scouting around and after I paid for it I made it available to whoever wanted it by placing it here.

I keep looking for a Hamlet Mayers Lynch, a free mulatto man born about 1765. As far as I know he was my relation, and was partnered with a free negro woman named Menifred or Minifred.

Best,
Jim Lynch
