LLOYD'S LIST MARINE NEWS 1740-1837

 

Lloyd's List is one of the world's oldest continuously-running journals, having provided weekly shipping news in London as early as 1734. Now published daily, a recent issue was numbered 59,200 (2007). Known simply as 'The List', Lloyd's List was begun by Edward Lloyd, the proprietor of Lloyd's Coffee House in the City of London as a reliable but terse source of information for the merchants' agents and insurance underwriters who met regularly in his establishment in Lombard Street to negotiate insurance coverage for trading vessels. The newspaper survives today to fulfil a similar purpose, although its circulation is now international, both paper and web-based, and it appears daily. As well as shipping news, Lloyd's List today covers marine insurance, offshore energy, logistics, global trade and law. [Wikipedia]

The database from which this information has been extracted has been compiled from copies of Lloyd's List deposited at Guildhall Library by Lloyd’s of London as part of the Lloyd's Marine Collection. The database is an index to the marine news section of Lloyd’s List for the period 1740–1837. Please note that only the news items are included; the ordinary shipping movements have not been indexed.
