Barques Carrying Cargo 1874 +/- 10 years

Submitted by isioux on Mon, 11/03/2014 - 03:53

Looking for records of ships in and out of Hong Kong from 1854-1884, particularly the Schooner or Barque Dohphin or Delphin with the Master Lilienthal.  I would be very grateful to learn of sources to consult or any details at all that I could investigate. smiley  -isioux

Hi David,

I inquired twice through their website about records of ships arrivals and departures for any years around 1874,

there has been no acknowledgement or reply.  So, I'm not sure if they have no records of that sort, or whether  they just are not staffed to answer inquiries.

I will try inquiring about the history of barques as trading ships - a different approach,  I will keep you posted. Let me know if you think of any other sources to explore.

Thank you so much !
