People and vessels cited in “Fifty-Two Years at the Labrador Fishery”, by Nicholas Smith, 1936.
Nicholas Smith, operated as a planter out of Brigus, Newfoundland. He records in detail his activities in the Labrador Fishery and the Seal Fishery over a period from 1874 to 1934. Included in his book are names of fishing schooners, sealing ships, fishing stations, firms and fishermen associated with the industry in NF and Labrador during this period. The book has no index. I have attempted to transcribe and compile the names of people and vessels cited in the book as an aid to those searching for relatives involved in the Labrador Fishery during this period.
