  • Registry of Shipping and Seamen

    This series contains surviving muster rolls from 1747, agreements, 1835-1860, and official log books kept by the General Register and Record Office of Seamen.
    A few of the official log books survive from about 1852, but it was not until 1854 that masters were required to deposit them at the end of the voyage.
    The log books that have been preserved are chiefly those containing entries of a birth or death at sea, or log books of smaller vessels which were printed on the same form as the crew list and agreement. Also from 1850 a form M was introduced for mutual release of seamen at the end of a voyage; a few of these survive.
    The rolls include names and addresses of seamen, dates of engagement and discharge and the name of their previous ship.
