    Histories
    Jacob Winter GREENLAND (Mariner) - Inquest into suspected Drowning, 26 Aug 1883
    Jacob Winter GREENLAND (Mariner) – Inquest into suspected Drowning, 26 Aug 1883
    My paternal grandfather, George Willis, used to tell the family legend of his grandfather, Jacob Greenland, and how he was ‘a Lighter Man on the boats. One night he was visiting a boat and on going down an iron ladder on a pier he slipped and was killed. He was doing someone else’s shift at the time.’

    It’s only since I began researching…
    Jane GREENLAND's voyage to Australia (and back) - 1890
    Jane GREENLAND’s voyage to Australia (and back) – 1890
    Jane Greenland was born in Dover in 1868, the eldest child of Jacob and Mary Ann Greenland. When she was 13 years old her mother died, and just two years later her father was tragically killed whilst working a night shift in Dover Harbour. By the age of twenty-two Jane was married and on board a ship bound for Australia.
