    Default William Williams b1815 Monmouth Wales

    This ancestor of mine was in the Merchant Navy sometime between 1845 and 1854. I believe the records have a number, BT113. I wondered if these details are available?

    Hallo Sanstew, and welcome to B-G. I have moved your thread to the Mariners and Ships forum in the hope that someone may help you. BT113 are records at the National Archives in Kew
    https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ro=any&_st=adv. A lot of these merchant seaman's records are available on the pay-per-view site FindmyPast, where you can buy credits. I did a quick search for a William Williams born 1815 Monmouthshire and there is one likely hit amongst many with the same name.
