Sailors' sixpence

The exhibition " Sailors' Sixpence : the lives of Whitby seamen revealed through the Muster Rolls " was officially opened yesterday by Captain S. L. Gamble, Master Warden, Trinity House, Hull.

These Muster Rolls are crew lists from the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries and are now beginning to reveal the lives of Whitby seamen, telling tales of wars and trade, national events and personal tragedies.
In this exhibition, you can explore the history of these muster rolls, find out about their national importance, and learn about the conservation that will preserve their future.
