extract from "Ledger 1693"

Peabody Museum, Salem Massachusetts, Acc, 16, 100, f. 51-53.
MHA microfilm. Transcribed by P.E. Pope.

Subjects: New England, material culture, imports, cod, planters.

[Buckley's ledger for the voyage of four ships to Newfoundland contains the account for many planters. Unfortunately locations are not given, though some locations can be reconstructed by analysis, since the ledger appears to be a chronological record of the coasting voyage of his vessels. On the basis of surnames recorded in 1681 and 1708, the following entries probably relate to Ferryland. Cross references to other accounts are omitted.]
