Norse, Hellyer Bros. H219

Postby Ireland1976 » Mon May 12, 2014 4:17 pm

Hi, I am trying to find out some information regarding my great, great Grandfather. We believe his name was Samuel Batty. My Grandfather has been told that he was the skipper of the Norse (Hellyer Bros. H219) when it was wrecked on 6th March 1929, at Iceland. All are believed to have survived. We understand that Samuel Batty had a small holding at Willerby and was famous for riding down to the docks on his horse when settling up. Any information would be gratefully received. Thanks.

The person you are talking about sounds like my maternal great-grandfather, Albert Edward Batty. He was the Skipper of the Norse when it went aground in Icelandic waters in 1929. He was originally from Glasgow and lived in Cottingham with his family. My grandmother, Molly, was one of his daughters.
