Does anyone know where or if there are any records of ships docking or companies using the port(s) Monkwearmouth and/or Southwick for the above year??
We are trying to trace a merchant seaman by the name of Alexander Scott, aged 40, widower, born in Scotland; he is in the 1861 census lodging with a Wilson family in Brougham Street, Southwick, Monkwearmouth. If anyone has any additional information reference this individual prior to 1861 it would be gratefully received as he is proving quit elusive! Many thanks
