Scope and Content Note

This collection contains account books and other financial records, customs, and conular documents, business correspondence, insurance policies, bills of sale, sail plans, and similar records relating to whalers, merchant and cargo ships, and other types of vessels that were in service between 1771-1927. Many of these vessels belonged to whaling agents and merchants whoc resided in New Bedford, Massachusetts, and nearby towns, including Boston, Dartmouth, Edgartown, Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, and Westport. Also represented by documents in this collection are vessels which sailed from Honolulu, Hawaii, Nantucket, Mass., New York City, N.Y., Newport adn Warren, Rhode Island, and San Francisco, California, as well as from ports in Connecticut, Georgia, Maine, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. In addition, these materials include several manuscripts which concern British, Canadian, and German vessels.

More than half of the records in this collection relate to voyages of whalers which sailed from New Bedford, Mass., and vicinity between 1795-1927. These documents include agent/owner accounts, bills, and receipts erflecting the expenses and profits of whaling voyages; outfitting books; crew accounts; Sea Letters, Whalemen's Shipping Papers, contracts, writs, correspondence, pages from logbooks, and other records concerning seamen who served on these vessels; insurance policies and bills of sale; protests and surveys, usually relating to storm damage to whalers; and notices regarding the adjustement of marine insurance claims following the loss of vessels, particularly due to the Arctic Disaster of 1871. These records are supplemented by manifests, freight lists, bills of lading, and memoranda generated by the transport of whale-oil and whalebone on cargo ships that usually sailed from Honolulu, Hawaii, to New Bedford. As a whole, these materials constitute business records of numerous Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, New Bedford, and Westport, Mass., whaling agents, including Jonathan Bourne Jr., Gideon Allen & Son, Andrew Hicks, I. H. Bartlett & Sons, J. Holmes Jr. and Brother, Edward Coffin Jones, L. Kollock & Son, Thomas Luce, S. Thomas & Company, Swift & Allen, Swift & Perry, and Isaiah Franklin Terry.

The remaining records in this collection prinicpally concern voyages of merchant ships which sailed from American ports between 1771-1895. Many of these vessels were engaged in the coastwise trade between New England, New York City, and states to the south, particularly Virginia. Other records reflect voyages from Boston, New Bedford, New York City, Newport, San Francisco, and elswhere to ports in the West Indies, South America, Europe, and Asia, especially those in Brazil, England, Sweeden, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Russia. These documents consist of customs records such as crew lists, manifests, certificates of ownership and registry, clearance papers, and permits to discharge cargo; bills of sale, insurance policies, and charter-parties; bills of exchange and lading; protests and financial accounts relating to damage to or the loss of cargoes and vessels; sail plans; and bills and receipts. Prominent New Bedford, Mass., merchants represented by these records include: James Arnold, Nathan Chase, Warren Delano, Humphrey, Nathaniel, and Thomas Sculyer Hathaway, George Howland Sr., James Howland II, John Howland Jr., Joseph Howland, George Hussey, John Avery Parker, Benjamin Rodman, Samuel Rodman Sr. and Jr., Joseph Rotch, William Rotch Sr. and Jr., William Rodman Rotch, and Seth Russell & Sons.

This collection also contains records of several pilot boats, lighthouse tenders, a salvage vessel, and a United States naval ship dating from 1837-1885. Notable among these documents are correspondence, agreements, financial accounts, and memoranda relating to the activities of the pilot boats Favorite of Tisbury, Mass., 1837-1842, and Penekese of New Bedford, Mass., 1869-1877, and a roll book giving the names, stations, and service dates of soldiers who manned the Delaware (Ship) during the Civil War.

Materials in this collection are arranged in alphabetical Series and Sub-series according to the name and rig of individual vessels. Descriptions of records pertaining to each vessel include the names of home port(s) and agents or principal owners, whenever this information has been found.
