Search for mastersThis page is an index of the masters of vessels. It returns the name(s) and official number(s) of the vessels, the record office holding the documents, details of the master, the years during which they were the master of the vessel and, if possible, the reference for the document. The details are taken from the heading of the crew list: any other master who took over during the voyage is not recorded in this index. Repeated references means there are more than one document for that year.
This index only returns those masters whose records match the search details. For a list of all the masters of a vessel, see the index of masters by vessel.
The information has been drawn from the CLIP transcriptions or the Record Office's catalogue. Please see the finding aids page for more details on sources, the abbreviations we have used, and acknowledgements.
