Until the twentieth century, seafaring was a major occupation in Jersey. John Jean's book "Jersey Sailing Ships" (ISBN 0 85033 464 0) contains a list of Jersey's Sea Captains. John Jean had also collected from the many ships papers that he had accumulated, a list of seamen - this list was published in the CIFHS Journal No.30. It is but a very small proportion of the many seamen in Jersey during the nineteenth century.
