I am looking for information on a David Underwood who I am assuming left Ayr in the mid 1800s. He sailed via the port of Exeter in UK for the Seychelles around 1850s. He was apparently working as a whaler, jumped ship off the island of La Digue, married a local girl - had several children - and ended up working as the overseer of a leper colony on the island of Curieuse.
He was my great-great-grandfather.
His mother was Anne Stewart or Steward.
Has anyone any information about him?
I'd be fascinated. Thanks
