The Merchant Fleet and ship-board community of Kent c.1565-c.1580
Until recently, knowledge of Kent’s merchant fleet in Tudor times relied heavily on ship surveys such as those of 1566 and 1572. However, records of individual ship voyages (both overseas and coastal), which began to be systematically collected at ports countrywide from 1565, can now be exploited thanks to the creation of a national database covering the period to 1580 at the University of Southampton (www.medievalandtudorships.org). The Kentish data contained therein is fully analysed here from which the patterns of coastal trade and voyages overseas emerge together with details of the activities of individual masters.

Abstract

Until recently, knowledge of Kent’s merchant fleet in Tudor times relied heavily on ship surveys such as those of 1566 and 1572. However, records of individual ship voyages (both overseas and coastal), which began to be systematically collected at ports countrywide from 1565, can now be exploited thanks to the creation of a national database covering the period to 1580 at the University of Southampton (www.medievalandtudorships.org). The Kentish data contained therein is fully analysed here from which the patterns of coastal trade and voyages overseas emerge together with details of the activities of individual masters.
