Coastguard cutter "Swift"
« Reply #1 on: August 05, 2016, 02:26:16 »
My G-G-Grandfather commanded a Coastguard cutter called 'Swift' in 1856.
It was mentioned a couple of times but without any details. Has anyone any information, it was based at Minster.
He lived at 1 Coastguard cottages, Scrapsgate but which end did the numbering start?
He was still there for the 1861 census but was moved to Chatham before 1865.
