I have no record of any other Humphrey Reynolds as a RN officer at any time. As your Humphrey died en-route from India, it is possible that he was in the service of the Bombay Marine/HEIC instead.

I'm looking for Lieutenant Humphrey Reynolds, naval officer, whose ship went down on return voyage to England from India in 1741. (He was born in Gt Torrington, Devon, and was the older brother of Sir Joshua Reynolds). You've clearly worked extremely hard (and long) to have compiled such a record, and I appreciate being allowed to add my comment to your page. Thank you. BH

Mike Clifford is probably correct. Humphrey appears to be the same who married by Canterbury Licence 28 August 1598 (as "Humphrey Raynell of Shafford, Kent, gentleman") Joan widow of Thomas Stockett of Canterbury. Children subsequently born/baptised at Northbourne, Deal, Kent, 1599-1604. By 1614 Humphrey and family residing at Modbury, Devon, where further children born, and where he died/buried 11 Feb 1628/9 as "Humphrey Rennell gentleman".

I have researched the Reynell family and believe that this Humphrey Reynolds is Humphrey Reynell (Renells) the fifth son of George Reynell who married Joan Fortescue. I have more information with sources (but these are primarily electronic so I cannot cut and paste here) should anyone wish to contact me.

Sorry, due to a spate of spam I have had to reinstate the Captcha. I know it's a pain and will update to a better solution soon.
You only have to pass this once per session though, once passed you will not see it again for a while.
