Can anyone help with with David Appleton (my 3x great grandfather)
I am having a real problem tracing his family. He was born at Devonport. He was a Mariner in the Royal Navy and Devonport was a busy sea port.
I am trying so many options and wondering if his father was also a sea man but I am having real problems.
David Appleton married Mary Ann Munyard in 1817 in Deptford where he is listed 'at sea'. On leaving ships he became a clerk at Somerset Hse for the Navy, working at Devonport. I have his family but not his parents.
Would really appreciate any ideas
