Hi Mike
I am interested in a ship called the Wilding, which sailed to the South Seas in 1804, and appears to be owned by Barbe & Co. Investors were Thomas Pitt, Baron Camelford II and Willilam Nicholson - I am interested mainly in Nicholson. Pitt was killed in a duel, and the result was a finacial mess which I would like to unravel. Regards, Sue
