Just sent an email. Date of birth of Robert Carpenter should read 1792.

Hi, My 5x maternal great grandfather Robert Carpenter (1762-1825) was supposedly shot by a Lieutenant Millet serving on the Coast Guard ship HMS Ramillies on 11 August 1825 at Lydd, Kent. The incident is mentioned in a report about the case and its dismissal at the Kent Assizes 19 August 1825. I haven't been able to track down the original Coroner's Inquisition where Millet was found guilty, which may have more details so I can confirm that the Robert Carpenter concerned was my relative. Kind regards, Linda

I believe an ancestor of mine, Matthew Warner, served as Quartermaster on this ship. He received a pension from 1826 after 17 years of service and upon his death in 1846, the pension records show his rank. The ship's name is given on each year's pension payment

Have you seen either lines or a drawing of the Ramilies (1785)? Looking for one.
