1747 - 1750 Voyages, to and from Newfoundland

(Incomplete). 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.

While a fair sampling is extracted here, this listing is not a “complete” record listing of Newfoundland Lloyd’s Lists voyage entries. Note: This listing may contain contractions, spelling and /r transcription errors, as sometimes extracted from typed material. Correction or improvement is possible in certain cases.

Voyages in 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, notes, endnotes, or other, which are asterisked as *****.
