PREFACE



The Customs District of New Bedford was created on July 31, 1789, as
Mumber X of fifty-nine such districts (twenty of which were in Massachusetts)
provided for by an Act of the First Congress of the United States "...to
regulate the collection of the Duties imposed by law on the tonnage of ships
or vessels and on goods, wares and merchandises imported into the United
States." The territorial limits of Customs District X were fixed by the
Act to "...include all the waters and shores within the towns of New Bedford,
Dartmouth, Westport, Rochester and Wareham, together with all the islands
within the count/ of Bristol". Another clause of the same lav; provided that
"t..To the district of hew Bedford shall be annexed Westport, Rochester, and
Wareham as ports of delivery only; and a collector for the district shall be
appointed to reside at New Bedford."

'The file of New Bedford Snip Registers, now in the custody of the
Deputy Collector of thet port, is fairly well preserved and appears to be
intact from 1601. Few of the registers issued prior to that date, apparent-
ly remain in existence. Because of its fa reat bulk, it has been found neces-
sary to publish the material in three volumes.

In this, Volume II, which covers registers issued from 1851 to 1865,
an asterisk in the margin before the name of the vessel indicates that a
previous documentation for the same ship appeared in the preceding volume.
Volume I (already published) comprised an alphabetical list of all vessels
which were documented before 1850; while Volume III, shortly to follow, will
bring the compilation from 1866 to 1938.

Antiquated spellings of family, town, or vessel's names have been
cojied exactly as they were written, but any other conspicuous misspellings
or misleading data on the registers, which were obviously mistakes of customs
clerks, have been corrected. The few corrections of this nature, however,
have been made only after thorough verification of questionable material.
This list of Ship Registers of the Customs District of hew Bedford
has been compiled by the staff of The National Archives Project in Massachu-
setts, as successor to the nation-wide project, The Survey of Federal
Archives, Dr. Philip M. Earner, National Director. Its compilation was begun
during the per iod when Mr. John W. McElroy was State Supervisor. The project
gratefully acknowledges the courtesy and cooperation extended by Customs
officials in New' Bedford and Boston, and especially assistance on the histor-
ical and technical aspects given by Professor Samuel Eliot Morison of
Cambridge, and Mr. Howard I. Chape lie of Ipswich, Massachusetts.
