Burial records

Family album

John Courtman was master of the Jersey ketch CECG in 1890 when The Star reported that he left for Corunna on 7 July, but had to turn back in a storm and lost his lower rigging. The ketch had reached about 15 miles to the WSW of the Hanois Lighthouse when the weather became so bad that Captain Courtman had to lay his vessel to. When the weather became worse he decided to run back to Guernsey for shelter, and lost his lower rigging en route
