Captain Reginald Featherstone of Newhaven

29th August 2008, 14:28
Hi Everyone
In my family tree I have a Reginald Featherstone who was married to an Annie C. White (Nance as she was known) in Newhaven in 1916 and this is where they both lived. Nance ran a confectioners shop at 4 Bridge Street. Reginald was apparently the youngest ferry captain working out of Newhaven on the Dieppe route. I was trying to find more detail about him, i.e. where he was born and, perhaps a picture of him at work aboard his ferry. Am I asking too much I wonder but perhaps one of you lovely people might know something I don't. So, in anticipation, I say thank you.
