Dear Robert,

Thank you for posting this. If I may ask, where did you learn of the story behind Alexander Pride and his adventures?

I have traced my ancestry back to Edward (Alexander Pride) Phillips by way of his daughter Margaret Jane Phillips (b.1815, d.1884), who married Robert Arnold (b.1807, d.1875).

I have read similar stories online of Alexander Pride's name change while jumping ship in Halifax, but would like to know where the story was first told or transcribed. Do you know if there are any records (i.e. ship's manifest, biographies, town histories, etc.)?

Thank you for your time, and happy searching!
