British Southern Whale Fishery (BSWF)
This web site is devoted to the crews and ships involved in South Sea whaling from Britain. Includes two free databases. One with the names of more than 13,500 men who served on these vessels, their rank and ship. The researcher can then consult a second free database for details of the voyage. Over 2,500 voyages are listed with the ship name, owner and other details. Useful for anyone researching crewmen and owners involved in the industry between 1775 and 1859. Hosted by the University of Hull.
