M*CH*MORE One Name Study

UK seamen

Until relatively recently, most UK M*CH*MOREs lived in South Devon near the sea. It is not surprising, then, that a large number of them became seamen. Some worked as fishermen or in other arms of the Merchant Navy, and some joined the Royal Navy. The following table lists all UK seamen included in the reconstructed trees and subtrees, together with unlinked records (indicated by an asterisk).

In the table, parentheses indicate a registration district (as opposed to a town or parish) and the following abbreviations are used: CERA—Chief Engine Room Artificer, MN—Merchant Navy, RAF—Royal Air Force, RN—Royal Navy and RNVR—Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve.
