The Rise of the English Shipping Industry in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries

Liverpool University Press

This chapter provides a thorough exploration of trade between Britain and Northern Europe during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It studies the bulk rates of goods imported and exported; the way trade operations differed depending on the goods involved; and the variety in shipping across regional ports. It documents how the coal, wine, timber, and corn trades operated in Northern Europe and Britain. It compares British shipping with neighbouring French, Dutch, and Baltic shipping. It concludes by stating that Baltic products were of increasing demand during the period, and that Anglo-Baltic trade grew at the expense of Dutch-Baltic trade, which damaged Anglo-Dutch relations.

Keywords:   British Regional Shipping, Anglo-Dutch Shipping, Anglo-Baltic Shipping, French Wine Trade, Coal Trade, Corn Trade
