    Wink Fishing Heritage

    Hi, thank you for adding me to this site. I have been researching the Webb and Steer family, both connected to Hull and Grimsby fishing industry. Also researching Hemming family, fishing/docker and military history. I have managed to trace the Steer family back to Devon in particular William Steer who moved to Hull before settling in Grimsby. He owned a fishing smack Lily of Devon in the 1890s. I am looking forward to navigating through this site and hopefully finding more treasured history. I have already found a link to my great grandfather Thomas Webb, who was lost at sea on the Helcia, many thanks for the leads on the link.

    Welcome to the Brit-Gen forums.
    You seem to be finding your way around just fine Isn't it great that information posted years ago is out there when others start their genealogy hunt.
    When you are ready just pick a suitable forum, tell us what you know and what you hope to find out and our friendly, knowledgeable sleuths will get on to it.
