20 NORTH DEVON SAILING VESSELS


 

The list was compiled from the BT108 series at Kew P.R.O.
in respect of Barnstaple & Bideford registrations, 1861.
It is hoped that this 'snippet' of history will also give a clue as to what information
is obtainable at the P.R.O., which includes names of owners & masters.
