Just had a look at the Plymouth Artificers 1779, fascinating site,
unfortunately our MESSUM ancestors are not quoted, although they
were working as shipwrights in the dockyard, probably not in 1779
but around that period. Is the Devon Records Office Archives
on-line and have they got similar records ??
Any help would be much appreciated.
I have the impression from your query that you have not realised that
the Plymouth Artificers site, as you call it, is in fact just a
(small) part of GENUKI/Devon, the site with which this mailing list
is associated, and whose URL is given at the foot of each message. I
suggest you check this page, under Archives and Libraries.
