Sailors on board English Sailing Ship "Success" in 1724 to 1729

I have transcribed the ship's log of the above sailing ship (ADM51 3982 National Archives) looking for a Captain Piper. I didn't find him but I did find the names of the sailors who sailed under the commands of Capt. Isaac Townsend, Capt. Wm. Smith and Capt. Richard Symonds. It seemed a pity to throw away such a lot of research and I thought it might help other members if I posted the sailors' names. I hope you agree.
Sailors paid off in Sept 1724. Their service covered sailing along the south coast of England and returning to base in Passage, Ireland.

I will give names of the 20 sailors who died mostly in Port Royall, Jamaica, and the sailors on board during the last voyage in a separate journal.

George Cattell, Goldsmith, of Camomile Street, London, England.

George Cattell was a member of a huge, wealthy family, many of whom were Goldbeaters. They lived mainly in the Manchester, Warwickshire area of England until they moved south and many settled in London. 'George' was a favourite first name, often coupled with Frederick. I have gleaned most of my information from Ancestry.com.
