Re: Tavistock Martin mystery
if you go on national archives site, put in Trafalgar ancestors, there is a list. Includes a James Martin aged 18, who was on H.M.S. Orion, aged 18, from Devon, and a James Martin 21 of Cullumpton on H.M.S. Swiftsure. Have you checked sideways, for brothers of Mary Martin,older ones? as battle was 1805. There are lots more names, but you would need to narrow it down to link to names on your tree. Of course the name Cock should also be considered, father of James Martin Cock, that line would need to be worked.
You are going to be busy!! good luck.
