This message is to all the Fawthrop Family. I am writing a book on Csptain James Fawthrop. A great hero and a man that should be regonized by the Fawthrop Family of which I am terribley proud to have as my G G Grandfather. There is a whole town, Portland in Australia who memorize his deeds and his heroic action in saving survivors off a ship called S.S.Admella. One of the most memorable time was last year 2009 the 150th anniversary of his deeds I had the privilege of unveiling a plaque in his name. He was born 13.09.1804 in Plymouth England and died 8.11.1878 Portland, Australia. His was father, Samuel and mother Mary. He did his sea training in Scotland and became a Master Mariner. Any Fawthrop family members that can help me in my endeavor would be greatly appreciated. Details of his deeds are available on the internet and can be accessed by those interested in the family tree.
