It is always harder to trace a member of the crew rather than an officer. The ships muster books are really the only source. They may contain the period of service, how he was recruited aboard and where he went afterwards.
The admiral's personal papers may also contin passing references, but this is less likely.

I have been trying to find out about a John Farquhar who was on board HMS Venerable at the battle of Camperdown. He was Admiral Duncans Steward and is on the muster role. Any suggestions where further information coold be found would be useful
