O'Byrne's Naval Biographical Dictionary, 1849


War Hero
Book Reviewer
William O'Byrne's Naval Biographical Dictionary contains brief biographical notes on every officer of the Royal Navy living in 1849, in alphabetical order of surname, and is thus a treasure trove for anyone with such ancestors of connections. Volume 1 (see url below) is on Google Books and ends with a Captain M'Farland. Both volumes are, I believe, searchable on Ancestry.com.

A naval biographical dictionary ... - Google Books
Thanks for that,I collect reams of old RN documents and look forward to reading it.
Which brings me on to the part where I downloaded a lot of 18'th Century Medical and Surgeon reports from all of our ships at that time,couldn't read a word! bloody handwriting was a disgrace!doctors don't change much.
