For example I was trawling through the web pages of the Maritime Museum at Greenwich England, trying to find out more about Captain James Mortlock who discovered the Pacific Islands in 1795. Nothing came up, but information about Lewis Mortlock, who died in Battle as Captain of HMS Wolverene in 1799, did.
There have been books either by or about things Mortlock. Due to the time it takes to download large images I have created a separate page to accommodate information about the books.
There have been china retailers in London bearing the Mortlock name.
I have noticed that various lithographs of London scenery, based on ink drawings also by a John Mortlock, occasionally come up for sale on eBay.

He also drew scenes of locations outside London as well as certain famous sailing ships such as Cutty Sark and Victory.
