Maritime Monday: From Carpenter to Shipwright
Samuel AVERY, married in 1806, was a carpenter in East Stonehouse during the Napoleonic Wars. One of his sons, George, christened 30 September 1814, became a shipwright - and later, a ship's carpenter. By the time he was an adult, the Napoleonic Wars were over, but George's services as a shipwright in HM Dockyard at Plymouth were still needed right up until a few years before his death in 1878. One of George's granddaughters married into the HAYWOOD family - and the tradition of working in the Dockyards continued, with varying occupations - including shipwright.
