Re: Robert Horsley sea pilot at Hartlepool
There is a book about the pilots from Hartlepool and the nearby Tees estuary. It is "the History of the Tees Pilots" by D.S. Hellier - The edition I have covers up until 1982. Ref isbn 0 9508004 06.

It includes a, stated to be incomplete, list of the Pilots. There are several Horsleys in the first half of the 1800s - but no Robert.
My family tree includes Horsleys and Hartlepool pilots but the Horsely are rather earlier.
James Horsley b 1761/m Jane Hood 1785
