I would guess that he was on L'epervier when he wrote the will, but was
on the Pandour when he died. The will you can get from TNA, I'm noy
sure about the details of the death duty.

I recently subscribed to FindMyPast, and I found they have death duty registers. I found
listed on the 1810 Canterbury Prerogative Court register, a mariner listed: #215 -
Obery otherwise Obrey, John, seaman, H.M. Ship Pandour.
His will is listed at TNA with the same name, John O’bery also Obrey, dated 1806. He was
then on HM Sloop S/L Epervier. The will was proved in 1810, and a sailmaster on the ship
Epervier was named Executor of the will.
I would like to find more information about the death duty that was owed, the inventory
of his estate, and any relatives that might have been listed. Does anyone know where I
would find this information? I had assumed he died while aboard the Epervier, but may
have been wrong. I did a little reading about H.M. Ship Pandour, and I cannot figure out
if the ship was at sea in 1810. Would he have been owed some money while serving aboard
the Pandour, and that is why the ship is listed on the death duty register?
Any mariners out there who understand how this worked and where I’d find the paperwork?
Many thanks for any information,
Lynne in Tucson
