~ LIST OF SHIPS ENCOUNTERED DURING THE VOYAGES ~
1800 to 1826

Each log or journal contains its own record of other ships noted by the Captain or senior officer, either as chance encounters or in a convoy. To help the reader, these lists have been amalgamated to form a general index of ships. Against each entry there is an indicator as to whether the ship is sailing under the Royal Navy or the HEICS. Other ships, whether lighters, whalers, independent merchantmen or foreign are listed under miscellaneous. The same ship is often recorded on different voyages and to give a full picture appear in this index as duplications. Information about the ships has been gathered from a number of sources, mostly from the Internet. A major site for Royal Navy ships is www.pbenyon.plus.com. Another site used for HEICS ships is: http://eicships.threedecks.org, a useful source for 'Country' ships. The main source for HEICS ships and their Captains is from Farrington: Catalogue of East India Company's Ships Journals.

As and when another log is transcribed, material will be added to this page.
