Registers of ship protests

Ship protests are formal declarations before a Notary Public following accidents or damage at sea, usually made by the master of the ship, detailing the material events of the voyage and particulars of storm damage and accidents. These registers of protests by masters of ships bound for Lynn compiled by E.M. Beloe appear to have been kept with his records as King's Lynn Coroner.

Trustees for the port of King's Lynn under an Act for the relief of maimed and disabled seamen and widows and children of those killed in the merchant service

This so-called Merchant Seamen's Fund Act of 20 George II (1747) provided that masters or owners of all English ships, and all serving merchant seamen, should pay sixpence a month to the fund, while serving on the ship, and that this was to be deducted from their pay. Receivers were appointed in ports outside London to receive the muster rolls listing the men and to collect the duty. The fund, distributed locally by the trustees, was eventually wound up nationally in 1851.
