Those Emblems of Hell?

Gordon Jackson

Liverpool University Press

This chapter explores the number of Scottish sailors in the seventeenth to eighteenth century, and addresses the growing shipping trade that called for a high demand of men. It presents the difficulties of working with estimations, or ‘guestimations’, and criticises the lack of statistical data available on Scottish sailors. The report also researches the social habits of sailors and reflects on their bad reputation in Scottish society.
