Good morning list,
Yesterday, after a search that has taken several years, I found where and when my gr gr grandfather, Thomas BERESFORD died.
On about the 12th of June 1868 he was washed off the cutter "Lapwing" during a storm and drowned. He was a crew member.
The "Lapwing" had left Fiji on the 16th May and was off the east coast of the South Island, near Dunedin.
My question is how or can I find the ship's log or any information about the "Lapwing" and her crew.
