Shipping Registers

List of Cornwall Registers

With Index to Crew Lists by Port and Ship Name,

which can be read at Cornwall Records Office


Penwith District of Cornwall

This is an ongoing project. At first, entries will be transcribed as lists.

It will form an index for those that wish to see the original registers.

After all the entries have been transcribed and on line,

further transcription will be made of the remainder of each Folio

and these will be placed on this website.

In the meantime,

if anyone would like details of any vessel shown,

please write to me, giving the Register Number, followed by

the Name of the vessel, Folio Number and the Image Number.

Please be aware that a ship can, and often did, have her rig altered.
