Shared note

Transcription: of entries in HMS Brilliant log No of 315719 Register Ticket William Burch Born at Chelsea in theCounty of Middx 11th day of Mar 1829 Capacity Boy 2 Class Height 5 ft 3 Hair Dk Brown Complexion Fair Eyes BrownFirst went to sea as Boy, 2 Class In the year 1846 Has served in theRoyal navy and has been in Foreign Service When unemployed, resides at Chelsea. His ticket was issued at HMS Brilliant 1st day of June 1846 Age when ticketed 17 Can write Yes In the Column headed 1846, Out, the entry reads vertically Boy HMS Brilliant. With ditto marks in the Home column and in the 1847 Out column. Perhaps two voyages.

There appears to be two entries in the Out column for 1851. The fact that some care has been taken to restrict these entries to the out column, and not to write them across both columns, usually indicates a foreign journey, not a local coastal voyage. The first reads 3452.64.5 and on the next line -,-,l.

3452 is the Port Rotation Number, a number assigned to a ship as it passed into/out of port. 64 is the number of the Port of London. 5 is ? On the next line, the first space should be the port (perhaps still London), the second dash should be the day of the month, and the 1 means the ship left in January. The second entry in the out column for 1851 reads 55l0.64.ll on the flrst line, and on the next. 5510 is the ship's Port Rotation Number, 64 is the Port of London, 11=?? There are no entries for 1852.

The entry for 1853 is in the Home column. AB stands for Able Seaman 6188.64.16 Ship's Port Rotation Number 6188,64 is Port of London again, 16=?? 64.12.7 Means the ship returned to the Port of London sometime before the 12h ofJuly 1852 The note beneath reads Ran Portland Bay. This probably means he deserted ship at Portland Bay off the South coast of Victoria, Australia, near the town of Portland. It is possible that he became the mayor of Mildura.

In 1892 he is described in the police record as “Bald, wen on neck, crucifix lower left arm, bracelet and Maltese cross left wrist, sailor and flags back of left lower arm; brig inside right lower arm, also anchor and heart, bracelet and Maltese cross right wrist, rings each finger left hand. No previous convictions.”
