Southampton’s Maritime Trade 1772-1815 (Maria Newbery)

We’d welcomed everyone back after the Easter break with a presentation by History PhD student Maria Newbery.  Not much detail is known about Southampton’s maritime trade in the late eighteenth century. This is mainly due to the fact that the key source material, the town’s Port Books have not survived. Her project, which commenced in October 2013, aims to quantify and analyse the trade using alternative sources, particularly information printed in the weekly newspaper The Hampshire Chronicle.
