Scope and content

Colonial Office 390 consists of miscellaneous trade statistics, Custom House accounts, reports, etc., derived from the Commercial series of the old Board of Trade and predecessors. Only Volume 6, 1675-1731, has been copied. It contains statistical information on exports and imports, shipping, etc., 1677-1731; gold and silver coined in the Tower, 1689-1710; naval stores imported, 1701-1727; and the fishery and population of Newfoundland, 1675-1731. The names of clerks, ships' captains and others connected with each collection are usually noted at the beginning of each section. Much of the import and export information pertains to the West Indies, Spain and Portugal. Newfoundland tables are found both at the beginning and the end of the volume. This material is available on microfilm reel B-1868.
