Not many people know this ;-  A " treenail mooter " made the wooden wedges which kept a  ships masts steady .

Aha - Wiki tells me as much as I need - don't go for the library. I had one forbear a RN Assistant Surveyor Sheerness 1770, his son a master shipwright Sheerness 1790, and then his son a surveyor for HEIC 1810. I suppose the pay was better in HEIC  as 'twas for the HEIC Army in India.

I'm pretty sure that 'Shipbuilders of the Thames and Medway' by Phillip Banbury lists ships built for the HEIC. I'll have to borrow the book from the library again, unless any of m'learned friends on the forum has a copy......

I wonder if the records of ships built for HEIC sic East India Company are included among these or did they have their own yards/docks elsewhere?

In his book" Building Britain's Wooden Walls" John Barnard states that in addition to Royal Navy ships, 62 ships were built in Barnard yards for the East India Company between 1763 - 1825. Although built for HEIC, the ships were in fact owned by individual owners, and chartered to to the Company.

The exact yard in which these ships were built is not listed, but it seems the vast majority were built at the Deptford yards.

I've now expanded this, based on previous work by CDP and HERB COLLECTOR and more research using Wikipedia, the book 'Shipbuilders of the Thames and Medway' by Phillip Banbury and the site 'threedecks.org'.

I thought that this would be the proper place for these notes

 Shipwrighting.

by Bert B.Shardlow

There were, in the days of wooden shipbuilding, several kindred trades to that of Shipwright. The "caulker", who with hemp and pitch, made the seams of carvel-built strips watertight. His assistant was the "oakum boy", who brought the pitch in liquid form from a boiler, supplying a number of caulkers. The "ropemaker", who from the combed hemp made up lengths of yarn by overlaying, and this in turn layed into the required lengths of rope in the ropewalks, which were often out of doors. The person who combed the hemp was known as the "hatchelman". The "sailmaker" made the sails from sailcloth supplied by contractors. The "colormaker" made up flags and ensigns from dyed cloth. The "rigger" measured the rope for splicing and made it up for standing and running rigging. Standing rigging is that which remains static, while running rigging is adjustable and secures sails, booms, etc. The "blockmaker" made the blocks and tackles for adjusting rigging and sails. The "nail smith" made nails, etc. for the use of shipwrights. The "blacksmith" forged anchors and iron fittings and from about 1810 made chain cable. He also made bolts and nuts. The "plugmaker" made the plugs which were driven into the countenbored holes where bolts were fitted. Caulkers fitted the plugs. The "jovfler" made the furniture and higher grade of woodwork. The "sawyers" used a two handled saw in a pit to cut large peices of wood. The top sawyer followed the shape of the timbers required, while the bottom sawyer was the junior man and supplied the upward thrust. The "painter" was responsible for the decoration and preservation of the hull. The "woodcarver" made figureheads and other ornate carvings. The "mastmaker" made masts and spars. He was usually a shipwright employed on this specialist work. The "scavelman" dug the docks in the early days and sealed the ends of the timber. A scavel was a heart shaped long-handled shovel.

The term Shipwright covered all aspects of the trade, from that of Master Shipwright, the supervisors, to the craftman themselves. The designers were also referred to as shipwrights, as were boat builders. In the royal dockyards, shipwright was the major trade. Whatever rank was held, the man started his career as an apprentice. The highest rank in the days of wooden ships was Surveyor of the Navy, followed by Master Shipwright, Assistant Master Shipwright, Senior Foreman of the Yard, Foreman of the Yard, Leading Man of Shipwrights, Quarterman of Shipwrights, and Shipwrights 1st, 2nd and 3rd Class.

The duties according to rank were design, selection of timber in the forest for knees, futtocks, frames and planks .

Mast timber was imported from the Baltic countries and later from the American colonies, and from 1776 from The duties according to rank were design, selection of timber in the the Baltic countries once again. Resin, oils and tar were imported from the same sources, mostly in exchange for manufactured goods and wool. Duties according to grade were: responsibility for manufacture of the keel, cutting of frames and knees, fitting in place, bolting up, fitting of the mast on the keelson, arrangement of decks, planking in, and when the ship was finally afloat, fitting out and sand ballasting to maintain trim. The caulkers would be involved at all stages. The riggers, sailmakers, painters and joiners would do preparatory work, but would be mainly involved in fitting out. Shipwrights also attended contractors works and at private shipyards where warships were built to inspect the construction step by step. Shipwrights also docked and undocked ships.

Shipwrights were resistant to change. When materials changed from wood to iron and later to steel, the Thames and Medway shipwrights held out. As steam had already been introduced into wooden ships and engine and boilerworks had come into being alongside shipyards, the change to iron shipbuilding was embraced by the boilermakers trade, whose techniques were those required. These included: frame bending, plating, plate smithing, hot rivetirfg and iron caulking. So, in private industry, from the time of the building of the first iron ships until the present, shipbuilding has been in the hands of boilermakers.

The Master Shipwrights of the royal dockyards, however, were not so resistant to change as their lesser brethern, and became the foremost ship designers in both the royal yards and the private yards for iron vessels. The first attempt at iron shipbuilding in a royal dockyard was in 1863, when H.M.S. Achilles was begun. Following the lead of the private yards, boliermakers were engaged to do the work.

Index of warships built in commercial shipyards in Kent.

This is intended to be the beginning of an index of ships built in commercially owned shipyards for the Royal Navy. Up until the middle of the 18th Century, warship-building was almost exclusively done by the Royal Dockyards, in the case of our county, those at Deptford, Woolwich, Chatham and Sheerness. In the middle of the 18th Century, Great Britain became involved in a series of wars which were part of a struggle to both defend the nation and to gain control of world trade. For about 70 years, the Royal Dockyards were unable to cope with the demand for warships and a great deal of ship-building was contracted out to commercial shipyards. After the end of the Napoleonic War in 1815, the demand for warships slumped and the Royal Dockyards were again able to keep up with demand. With the coming of Iron, Steel and Steam, ship-building in the south-east of England virtually died out, apart from the remaining dockyards at Chatham and Sheerness. This was because commercial ship-building moved nearer to the suppliers of iron and later, steel and ship-building in England became mostly centred around shipyards on rivers in the north of the country, such as the Mersey, Tyne and Clyde.

This list is grouped by location and company and where possible, links to pages on this forum about those ships. It is only concerned with commercial shipyards, not the Royal Dockyards. Ships are listed in chronological order by yard.

As and when articles get written about individual ships, I'll add a link as appropriate. Ships built in the Royal Dockyards at Deptford, Woolwich, Chatham and Sheerness will be listed and linked seperately. This way, articles about ships built in these places won't get lost in the crowd.
