I have been unable to find any information regarding the seagoing career of William Henry MARSDEN of Sheffield, then St Anthony and Kenwyn, Cornwall.
Born in Sheffield about 1815.
I have not found his marriage or his daughter's birth - 1836, Sheffield.
1851 Census he is absent from the family home in Cornwall, BUT by 1861 he is described as Retired Master Mariner / Gentleman.
Perhaps someone has seen the name ??
Any ideas / advice appreciated.
Many thanks,
