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.

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.
