WFM495's User Page[edit]

Hello, I am a retired English environmental scientist.

I am interested in naval warfare in the Napoleonic and American war of 1812 and the history of the Scottish Borders.

My ancestor was a Scot.[1] He was captured by privateers and landed in Grand Canary between 1811 and 1813.[1][2]

I have contributed most of the text of two Wikipedia articles: John Ordronaux (privateer) (1778-1841), Privateer, and John Ordronaux (doctor) (1830-1908), his son.
