title The Ann and Mary: An Ocean Trader of the 1820's
creator Greenhill, Basil
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description In issue No. 12 (Fall-Winter 1982) of THE ISLAND MAGAZINE, Lewis Fischer gave an interesting and valuable ac- count of the employment of Island- owned and -registered merchant sailing ships between the years 1846 and 1890. These were the years when Island ship- builders tended to retain a certain number of vessels and operate them on their own account in general deep-sea trade. As Lewis Fischer explained in his article, it is possible to build up a pic- ture of the way in which these vessels were employed because of the availability at the Memorial University of Newfoundland of that invaluable archive of British and Canadian merchant shipping history, the "Agree- ment and Accounts of Crew."
