My great grandfather John Wigley (of Cardigan) served on the SS Anne Thomas from Oct 1895 to Jan 13, 1896. I am in possession of the original Certificate of Discharge together with a character reference signed by the Master, Owen? Jenkins. Have you got any further information regarding the vessel and in particular any information regardingthe voyages undertaken during this period. If not, would you be able to guide me in the right direction to glean further information
