1743 & 1744 Voyages, to and from Newfoundland

Extracted from Lloyd's Lists, London (Julian Calendar)

Vessels could be constructed cheaper in Colonial America where virgin timber was limitless, than could be done back home in England.

(Note: This listing may contain contractions, spelling and/or transcription errors, as sometimes extracted from typed material.

Correction or improvement is possible in certain cases.)

Voyages for which Newfoundland may have been an interim port, and for which Newfoundland was not a specifically named port within the lists, are not included here, except as examples, which are asterisked as *****.

Endnotes:

  1. 1. Letter of Marque; aka Privateering. Privateers. Privadieres. Pirateering.

    Plural Lloyd's List voyages indicate where Captain LeGros_LeGrois, sailed between Guernsey and Southampton. He also sailed out of London.

    The Diocese of Winchester held administrative authority over the Channel Islands of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney and Sark. Stemming from this hierarchy, plural relationships developed between Hampshire and the Channel Islands, some permeating early Newfoundland settlement. Apparently most or all of the Jersey merchants in early Newfoundland were interrelated. Long-term relationships, spanning decades and centuries, brought many early merchants and settlers to Newfoundland.

    Family DeGresh_Degreshy_DeGrouchy_Degris. {Le Greshley?}

    Native of the Channel Islands. Intermarried at Christchurch, Hampshire. Early at Trinity Bay, Newfoundland.

    As Governor of Jersey, in 1600, Sir Walter Raleigh initiated the Jersey Fishery in Newfoundland. Jersey fishermen were encouraged to start a fishery in that part of the colony he had been granted by Queen Elizabeth at Ferryland.

    2. The "Newfoundland Fleet" included "many vessels", not listed, insured, or registered, with Lloyds of London.

    Listed and insured vessels, may have carried larger quantity, more valuable cargo, and voyaged more often, resulting in greater capital "turn-over", on the vessel owner's business ledgers.

    A Fleet of vessels departing England for the Crown’s Newfoundland Fishery, when comprised; may have departed England at diverse times, from diverse locations, such as Milford, Southampton, Torbay, Plymouth, etc. Bay Bulls was a destination harbor for the Fleet, in Newfoundland. Or the Fleet may have dispersed off the coast of Newfoundland, some vessels continuing on to Virginia, the West Indies, etc.

    3. Early Newfoundland Train Oil (Cod oil, seal oil, whale oil, etc.), was used as fuel for European lamp lighting; and in soapmaking, etc.

    4. English prisoners of war ransomed and/or exchanged with the French.
