    I thought I would join a a lonely Trafalgar veteran.

    I have Peter Sampson Hambly in my tree, who was apparently on the 'Prince' under Captain Grindall.
    Survived an interesting naval career but was killed when his phaeton overturned in a Devon country lane.

    Might as well join the band of brothers. On Dad's side I have a mid-shipman on the Ajax (Weather Column) and on Mum's side several shipwrights at Sheerness who helped build the Ployphemus (Lee Column).
