I have yet to complete the final register of fishing vessels ( I have taken 11,000 photographs of the records so far, around 600 remain ), then will begin the labour of transcription. As I do this, I will commence photographing the Penzance Ship Registers. Other ports with the Cornwall Records Office are for Falmouth, Fowey, Hayle, Looe, Padstow, Scilly, St Ives and Truro. The Maritime Museum are already researching Falmouth Ships, Ian Banfield is working on the Registers for Scilly. I am prepared to complete all the Penzance Registers. I hope to add St Ives and Hayle ( as part of my pages on the Warren / Harveys cooperation ), If I am given time, then I will add the rest. This will take a LONG time. But, I hope to be able to refer and offer some kind of look-up response. I have a complete list of the British Ship Registers, and where they are now kept.
Best Wishes, Raymond

A noble effort Raymond. I wish you every success in completing this. Apart from being an interesting record it will make the information available for research.

Regards,

Brian

Hi Raymond

Interested to hear about your project. How far east does this go?
Have attached a (poor) copy of a page from "The history of Frank C Strick, etc" published by the WSS in 1996 showing the one ship company North Devon Steamship Co Ltd owned personally by F C Strick.

Let me know if your interested in a better copy

Regards
