Hello.

According to the census records, James Thomas Pollard was born 1803 Lydd Kent.
He was a Seaman/Mariner.

I found this record on Family Search

James Pollard
United Kingdom, Merchant Navy Seamen Records, 1835-1941
birth 1804 Kent
military service United Kingdom
name James Pollardevent typeMilitary Serviceevent year range1853-1857event

I wonder if anyone can please tell me if i can find this record anywhere else that might give me more details that might convince that this is my James thomas Pollard.

Or just more details about this record would be good.

Thankyou.

Hello David, basically it's a list of dates of voyages between London and the Indies, there's little else.

Only info is that he was 50 in 1854 and born Kent.

What do you already have on him, and what else are you trying to find out?

Hello Marie.

Thankyou, i didn't know that.

I have him in all the census records. It would be good to find out who his parent's were but i can't seem to find a baptism on the FamilySearch site.

Can't see a baptism on Ancestry - but Kent is not very well represented, either on Ancestry or familysearch

It says William Pollard was 12 when he married Sarah Russell and then he married Ann Triton 4 May 1794.

Thing is that on the 1841 census his wife is Jane????????
