  • Ship Registers and Enrollments of the Custom District of Machias, Maine

    Russell C. Farnham, CG

    Published Date : November 29, 2002
    During the years of the Great Depression and the New Deal (1929-1941), of the Roosevelt era, many “wish lists” were rapidly developed with a view toward creating instant jobs.  The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was the principal relief agency of the so-called second New Deal, and was intended to provide not welfare, but jobs.  Over eight million unemployed people were put to work constructing buildings, roads, airports, and schools, and many actors, painters, musicians, and writers were also employed.  A notable achievement of the WPA was “The National Archives Project under the Community Service Program.” 

    One such effort of The National Archives Project [of Maine] was to focus on the compilation and history of old ships built in Maine.  The certificates of registry and enrollments of American vessels were considered to hold great value for research scholars, but especially genealogists interested in learning more about ancestors who owned or built sailing ships in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.  

    The Maine WPA project was concerned with the collection of data from the “Custom Collections of the District of Machias.” In 1942, the data generated from the project was compiled into a two-volume manuscript of over 1,000 pages, titled “Ship Registers and Enrollments of Machias, Maine, 1780-1930.” Before we go on to the contents of these volumes, a little background pertaining to the Machias district should be noted.

    • Machias had a large foreign trade, and a Spanish vice consul. 
    • The Machias Custom District of Massachusetts was established by the Act of July 31, 1789, as Number III of fourteen collection districts.  It was further enacted that [in] the State of Massachusetts “for each of the Districts of Machias and Passamaquoddy shall be appointed a collector to reside at the ports of Machias and Passamaquoddy.”  It was changed to Machias, Maine, by the Act of March 3, 1820. A list of customs collectors from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century is shown below:

    • The scope of the Machias custom district was far reaching.  Their responsibility extended to the following cities and towns of Maine, Massachusetts, and Connecticut [in one instance as far south as Delaware].  All are Maine towns or cities, unless otherwise indicated, for which the sailing vessels, builders, and owners compiled in this WPA project are linked to:  Addison, Alna, Bangor, Barnstable [Mass.], Bath, Belfast, Bluehill, Boothbay, Boston [Mass.], Bowdoinham, Brewer, Bristol, Brunswick, Bucksport, Calais, Camden, Cherryfield, Columbia, Columbia Falls, Cutler, Duxbury [Mass.], East Boothbay, East Machias, Eastport, Eden, Ellsworth, Essex [Mass.], Falmouth, Franklin, Freeport, Friendship, Gloucester [Mass.], Gouldsboro, Hampden, Harpswell, Harrington, Ipswich [Mass.], Jonesboro, Jonesport, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Lubec, Machias, Machiasport, Milford [Delaware], Millbridge, Mt. Desert, Newburyport [Mass.], Nobleboro, Neank [Conn.], Pembroke, Penobscot, Perry, Phippsburg, Portland, Prospect, Robbinsten, Rochester [Mass.], Rockland, Salisbury [Mass.], Scituate [Mass.], Sedgwick, Sullivan, Surry, Thomaston, Topsham, Trescott, Waldoboro, Warren, Wells, Westport, Yarmouth.
    • Nearly 2,000 vessels were registered or enrolled at the above towns and cities.  Seventy-three of these locations built at least five vessels, with some of the largest volume found at Addison (91), East Machias (139), Harrington (122), Essex, Massachusetts (82), and Machias (120). 
    • There were 2,782 vessels indexed in all, from “hailing ports” of 132 cities and towns in Maine, Connecticut, Massachusetts, as far south as Wilmington, North Carolina, and west to San Francisco.  Machias was the hailing port of 655 vessels. Other major hailing ports included the following towns and cities:

    • The District of Machias was discontinued and the collector’s position abolished June 30, 1913, by order of then outgoing President Taft on March 3, 1913. 
    • According to the manuscript, the original documents commencing from 1780, from which these records were abstracted, are in possession of the United States Custom House, Portland, Maine. 

    Volume 1 includes the title page, table of contents, preface, introduction, name of the collectors of customs, tabulations and tables, explanatory notes, and sketches of ships built in Maine.  Included in the manuscript are (1) abstracts of the registers and enrollments of 1,990 ships listed alphabetically by name and (2) indices by surname of individual names culled from these registers and enrollments, from A to K inclusive. 

    Volume 2 includes the same information as volume 1, but pertains to surnames from L to Z.  

    The surname lists also contain first names, which is a great benefit to researchers.  Of course if the interest is a ship, and the name of that ship is already known, researchers can go directly to that page without regard to the surname index.   

    The compilers of the data for this project listed a separate entry for each vessel built in a town or city under the custom jurisdiction of Machias. The entries are arranged in the manuscript alphabetically by name of the vessel, and are numbered consecutively to include the following data for each vessel:

    • name of the vessel
    • rig or type
    • hailing port
    • place and date the vessel was built 
    • name of builder
    • tonnage
    • dimensions
    • type of document
    • name and residence of owner
    • shares owned
    • occupation 
    • name and residence of master
    • changes in rig, tonnage, or hailing port 
    • final disposition of the vessel, if noted        

    The WPA project represents a clear window into the ships of Maine in the nineteenth century, and their owners, masters, and places of origin.  It goes beyond the usual name of the vessel and its master.  A few typical vessel sketches follow:

    Having shown these samples, a quick look at some of the entries offers a challenge to digest and get a “feel” for some of the information.  For instance, sterns are described as square head, billethead, or figurehead.  To this landlubber the latter is probably the more romantic vessel with that type stern found on many of these ships.  Images of adventurous voyages to far-away ports, with the usual nostalgia, come quickly to mind.  Some vessels were described as having “one deck” (with measurements indicating they were not very tall), with two masts (surely there was a place to sleep).  Ownership changed frequently.  The number of shares owned or portions thereof, provide the best basis for an educated guess at the money  individuals may have advanced to cover the cost of building the ship. As appropriate, some owners were termed “heirs [estate] of…,” or “estate of…,” or as “copartners.”  It was not uncommon to find female owners in that era as well.   In some instances the shares of an individual fell to his heirs or estate, providing a reasonable window for the death year of the person. 

    The next page contains a surname list of the many names of individuals, places, and companies found in the indices, representing builders, masters, and owners.  The indices comprise the first name and initials of individuals, however it would be impractical to list the entire name of every individual here, so only the surname will follow.  Ideally, researchers should contact the repositories of the manuscript to learn if the name of a person being researched appears in the index, how to obtain a copy of the page containing full particulars, etc.  

    The end result of this huge WPA effort is a two-volume manuscript of more than 1,000 pages.[1]   The original typescript copy is at the Mayhew Library, in Addison, Maine - however copies can also be found at:
