Rame Peninisula Boats of the 19th and 20th Century

hi all, I am attempting to create a information website on boats built in, or owned by residents of the Rame Peninsula. (SE Cornwall - just west of Plymouth). (even boats that got wrecked there or went a'smuggling thereabouts)

I am attempting to collate Ship registry records, census information, published news items, personal reminiscences, photos - indeed anything that will add to the fund of information.

I am nearly through Plymouth registry records and hope to expand into Devon and Cornwall very soon. Then to attempt a newpaper trawl for news items.

I have already had a very positive response from Treeve (SM) many thanks!

So the ask is........ where else would members recommend that I search? Do any of you have information that might be useful??

All offers and suggestions gratefully received.

Hope to hear

best wishes Cawsandboy

What about Whitesands Bay? or Eddystone ?

That is another reason that I am transcribing the Shipping Records,
there is always a note when the Registry is closed as to why.
Wrecks are usually recorded with loss date and place.

Shipwrecks off Rame area

Hi there treeve, long time since you kindly offered me some names of wrecks in my area.
My database has gone up to 178 in the area east of Looe an and west of the Mewstone.
I got most of the names you offered and have found quite a lot of newspaper reports etc to build the information for my research.

However I cannot come up with anything on the following:
RH Jones, nothing found
HMS Cossack, vessel seems to have been scrapped in 1875??
and Willen Yonge nothing found.

Care to share your secret source with me please? Hoping to post this infm on website soonish so any help would be v much appreciated

best wishes cawsandboy
