Royal Navy Recruits 1826 -1906

Eastern Essex has a long association with the Royal Navy in keeping with its seafaring tradition and has provided many recruits to both the Royal and Merchant navy.

The National Archives has custody of the surviving papers from the Royal Navy.

Visitors can browse the details of Naval recruits and examine their files. These can range from one page to several pages depending on the length of service and reasons for recording details.

Although a personal visit to the archives is best it is possible to browse on line and for a small payment see copies of details held on these recruits.

While the men were in the navy they would not appear at their normal home in the census so their inclusion on the list will solve a mystery disappearance.

Listed below are some of the men from the Dengie who joined the Royal Navy between 1826 and 1906
