From an old crew list I have this person, aged 41 in 1912 as possibly of Devon. I can't find anything on him on ET. Any ideas?

This may be a longshot, but perhaps the paper got his last, or perhaps even his first, name wrong. Newspapers have a tendency to misspell names. This is just an idea.

Good thinking, Brandon. Probably this is Ernest William Hamblyn, a 2nd Class bedroom steward and a Devon man (born in Galmpton Warborough).

The man was certainly called Hamblyn. No crew list is a good as the original, which still exists in Britain's Public Record Office. Here's his signature.

He gave a Southampton address, but he may originally have come from Devon.

Thanks for your interest.
I have now found Ernest Hamblyn on UK 1901 census, born Plymouth 1871 and in 1901 in Shirley, Soton described as a marine store keeper. I will now work on his early life.
Thanks again.
Steve
