Sea Captains' Mutual Benevolent Society 1853
« on: September 20, 2017, 02:20:42 pm »
A bit of a mouthful and perhaps an uninspiring title - nevertheless it is another historical gem, this time one that includes the signatures and ships names of those Shoreham master mariners that insured themselves prior to their voyages in 1853. For me it was particularly interesting as it included the first captain of the newly built War Hawk, a Shoreham vessel we had already researched and included on the SBS website.
The lists are here:-
