Rodger Lydon Coastguard

Sheila Lumb

I am looking for Rodger Lydon b. 6th January 1841 in Galway Ireland. His father was also called Rodger. He joined the Navy as a boy in 1859 and stayed with the Navy until 1869. He then re-joined as a Coastguard serving in Ross, Sligo, amongst other places. He married Bridget Reily ? b.1851 at some point and he was pensioned off from the Navy in 1879. He is in Liverpool with Bridget in 1881 where they have a child Mary Ellen Lydon. They are never recorded together again Rodger joins the naval reserve at Chatham HMS Pembroke in 1891. Bridget and Ellen end up in Barrow in Furness at some point before 1882 but I don’t know why. If anyone knows Rodger’s family could you please contact me. Thank You Sheila Lumb
