  • Notes 
    • From the 1881 Census (RG11 Piece 5478 Folio 50 Page 21) David John, 8, was with his mother Elizabeth, 42, a Sailor's Wife, at Church Street, Towyn, Merionethshire, Wales. His father was busy in Milford Haven aboard the 'Olive Branch'. With him were his siblings Annie Elizabeth, 20, a General Servant, Mary, 18, a Dressmaker, Scholars Owen, 10, Susannah, 6, and Jane Ellen, 4, along with Thomas Owen, 2, and my Taid, John Davies, 2 months.

      From the 1891 Census (RG12 Piece 4587 Folio 46 Page 6) David J(ohn) Williams, 18, a Sailor, was living with his uncle James, 50, a Master Mariner, and aunt Ann, 56, at 6 New Street, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. With them were his Grandmother, Ann, 82, his cousins Annie E, 21, a Dressmaker, John J(ames), 18, a Grocer, and David W(illiam), 13, a Scholar.

      According to Lewis Lloyd in "A Real Little Seaport"; David Williams was aged 15 in 1887 when he joined the schooner 'Jane Owens' as O.S. (£1 5s a month), having served previously aboard the 'Lerry' 2/11/1887. He continued as O.S. (£2 a month) aboard the 'Jane Owens' until he was discharged at Aberdovey 18/5/1888. Later he joined the schooner 'Sarah Davies' as O.S. (£2 5s a month). Lewis goes on to say, incorrectly, that David Williams seems to have been a younger brother of Captain John Williams (b. 1865).
