I'm not sure what the notation under 'from' on the initial Ballydavid record stands for - I'd suggest a posting on the Coastguards of Yesteryear website to ask the experts there, include the references above.

The Church of Ireland marriage records for Ventry parish only go back to 1845 - early records for the parish were apparently lost during the civil war.

The baptism for Harriott Elizabeth Evans seems to be listed under Dingle rather than Ventry parish. (this entry is about half way down on the right hand page) There are a number of other baptisms on the same page which mention coastguards.

Hi Neil

I'm afraid I can't take you a great deal further forward, but I might add a little to your knowledge.

FB is Former Book and indicates that your man can be found in ADM 175/15 (pdf 347) at Ballydavid. This shows that he was nominated to the CG Service from the Revenue Cruiser Success in 1821.

I did also look at ADM 175/99 (pdf32), which is the index of nominations for Ireland. This shows that he was paid off from Success on the 28 Sept 1821 and nominated to the CGS on 19 Oct 1821. Frustratingly his place of birth on this record is blank, but it does give his age as 33.

Other than this I don't know what to suggest.

You need to look at pdf 155.

They are not available online, but if you could get access to the Navy Lists for the 1820's this could provide a clue as to where the Revenue Cruiser Success was stationed. As an example the 1814 list has her on the Plymouth Station, identifying a location might help you find more family information.
