More Description

Scotland's High Court of the Admiralty, which was established in the mid-15th century, had jurisdiction over civil, criminal, and prize matters upon the high seas. The earliest extant records of the Admiralty Court date from 1657, and they are housed in the National Archives of Scotland in Edinburgh. For this new book, the indefatigable David Dobson has culled the records of the High Court of the Admiralty--mostly from the court's Register of Decrees--for any reference to America between the years 1675 and 1800. American Data From the Records of the High Court of the Admiralty of Scotland, 1675-1800 is thus a transcription of 3,000 references to Scotsmen with a maritime connection to the New World, as gleaned from relatively obscure maritime records.
