Hi, I am trying to find the parents of my ancestor John DALE. Known facts are:
1) he was born within 5 years of 1796.
2) when in the Royal Navy he signed on as being born in Middlesex, England.
3) he was married to Mary Tubbs or Tubby but I do not know the place nor date of marriage.
4) Mary was born in Caister, Norfolk in 1801
5) John died in Harwich, England on August 4th 1859
6) he was a master mariner.
7) I should very much like to also find out about his birthdate.
8) He served in the Royal Navy on board HMS Martial as a gunners mate around 1821.
If someone could help me to find out his details I should be most grateful. I have been trying to get passed this point for many years!
Thanks for reading this.
