Re: William Bird of Hoylake lighthouse 1819-1855

Actually Stephen, I've found it now thanks, there are of course several newspaper articles about the Earl Moira and I've also read Joseph Bennett's log today with his comments on it - interestingly he didn't name the vessel but the date of Aug 9th 1821 was present and I could put 2 and 2 together to fill in the gaps. We also have a sea chart from the early 1900s where we could identify the Gut no.1 buoy and Wharf Bank which aren't on modern day charts.

Thanks for the info, very interesting!
