Sir William Henry May

My Great Grandfather

Of great interest is the full biography of William Henry May
Click on his name and it will direct you to his List of Appointments and to chapter 1 of his memoirs
There is no doubt the William Henry May is the centre of this website when it comes to documentation and historic information. Firstly he did so much and secondly much of what he did or was involved in, has been documented or retained by his descendants.
William Henry May participated as an officer in the Sir George Nares British Expedition of 1875-1876. In addition to a page of photographs and ‎his journal, you can link from this page to both Volume 1 and Volume 2 of the “Voyage to the Polar Seas Written by Sir George Nares.” For anybody interested in history it is well worth reading. The challenges that both ships went through along with their crew is unbelievable. For anybody directly descended from the Admiral it is a must read.
