Fowey Harbour has a long history of not only handling cargoes but also of vessels being built in the harbour or operated by ship owners having their vessel registered in the port of Fowey.
C.H. Ward Jacksons' book "Ships and Shipbuilders of a West Country Seaport Fowey 1786 - 1939 provided a base to start researching more details on all the vessels on the Fowey Register between 1857 and 1940. The record highlights those vessels built in the port together with those from many others including from across the Atlantic in Nova Scotia. The detailed results are to be found in the excel spread sheet attached below. It contains details of some over 500 plus vessels with records of their registered owner or Managing owners (MO) and what happened to them. The next step will be including reference annexes on some of the vessels.
