A girl in every port
Do sailors have a girl in every port? Maybe it is just an old seafaring tale or maybe, sometimes, there may be some truth behind it. As you reveal the people on a particular branch of your tree these sorts of tales can suddenly emerge. Sometimes they are even stranger than this.
Looking into a Walker family in Rothesay, Isle of Bute, we came across a marriage of a Catherine Walker in this family to Charles Archer, a seaman aboard HMS Jackal. Finding two children of the marriage suggested maybe Charles had settled down in Rothesay with Catherine. Not quite what happened.
By 1881 Charles is back in England living with his brother in Fulham and is recorded as unmarried! Catherine is in Rothesay with her father and daughter (Catherine Walker, not Archer but that is another story). And she is recorded as a widow. More exploring of this branch to do I think.
