Shared note

George Harvey was educated, indentured to his father from an early age like his two elder brothers before him.

George was a member of the crew of the "Providence" when his brother Robert Harvey, the eldest son was appointed Master of ‘Providence’ by his father on the 15 th. May 1815. Young Robert lost the ‘Providence’ in the Wallet near the mouth ofth e Clone River on the 18 th. December 1816. Colchester Port records describe this vessel as a forty three foot tuck stern cutter. The ‘Providence’ had previously been lengthened by six foot six inches, all the other dimensions for thisvessel w ere still the same as the original when it was lost.

George served on various boats before acquiring his own, the first of these that I found was the "Linnett", perhaps purchased some time in the early eighteen twenties. "Linnett" (George Harvey owner and master). Altered from open peter boat at Wivenhoe, certificate of Thomas Harvey (his step brother) 10 April 1826. 10 ton, smack, one deck, 23' 7" length, 3' 6" broad, running bowsprit, round stern, clinkerbuil t.

George was licensed as a "Pilot" for the port of Colchester from at least 1835 but more than likely he was registered as a pilot much earlier than that. George Harvey's Smack "Reward"(1835) was employed solely as a pilot vessel in that year.the smack Linnett, had been used by George before then. It is interesting to know that Robert Harvey's "Two Brothers", (mariner, owner and master). "Formerly a peter boat but having since been decked by Thomas Harvey". 6 ton yawl. Reg 31 Oct1821, f ive years before George Harvey's peter boat was decked.

Pilots were licensed (not employed) by the Corporation of Trinity House. When a pilot first applied to be licensed, he had to have British nationality, have several years' experience. In the forty outport districts, sub-commissioners ofpilotage , appointed by the Corporation, examined pilots and recommended them for licences. In the smaller ports, "Trinity House pilots" were often fishermen. Trinity House's services in this field were financed by a levy on pilots' earningsboth by dues paid by ships and the licensing process. A Trinity House pilot's licence was renewed annually at which time his eyesight, general health and knowledge of local waters were tested.

George Harvey was killed by the boom of his smack (name unknown) off Walton-on-the-Naze, early ion Saturday morning, on the incoming tide while ferrying Lord Ribblesdale and another young noble man (no name given). My feelings are that theweathe r being so bad perhaps George's young son (age 11 years 9m) George Blyth, who was with his father at the time may have been responsible in some way for his fathers death. George could not manage the smack after the accident. George isburied in 'Wivenhoe Old Cemetery', memorial on headstone of grave with his wife Maria Harvey nee Halls number C 150, Old cemetery at Wivenhoe,Essex. Note;- George Blyth Harvey ran away from home, perhaps to London, working on ships until disembarking in Melbourne, Australia in 1852 after the discovery of Gold, Jonathan Harvey, his younger brother was to join him there ten years later in 1862.

Essex Standard-Disaster at sea - Friday, July 24 1846. On Saturday morning last about 5 o'clock as George Harvey. mariner of Wivenhoe and one of the Trinity Pilots, was returning from Harwich Regatta. In charge of a smack with Lord and anothery oung nobleman visiting at the Rev W Elliots, at Wivenhoe and one of his own sons, a little boy of about nine years of age was unfortunately knocked overboard by the boom and drowned. The remaining parties were also exposed to imminent peril inno t being able to manage the vessel, she was driven about for more than half an hour and narrowly escaped striking the Gunfleet sand. Providently however she was observed by another smack, which took her in tow and the three individuals thusrescued from the dangers which threatened and reached Wivenhoe in safety. The body of the unfortunate man Harvey was washed ashore at Claction the same day and from an extensive fracture found in his scull it is believed that he must have beenkilled in stantly by the blow from the boom. He left a widow and twelve children note.-George Blyth the young son was almost 12 years old (11 years 9 months).

The same day Alfred Brett aged 20 who had joined the crew in June that year and Henry Game aged 17 an apprentice on the smack Good Agreement of East Donnyland (a village across the River Clone from Wivenhoe) were in a boat in the Swin for thepur pose of taking a pilot off a foreign vessel, of which he had been in charge, was as it is supposed, in consequence of the boisterous state of the weather, the boat was drawn under the vessel, and the line breaking, both of them perished.
