Teignmouth to Newfoundland

The purpose of this blog is to record a research project undertaken by Torquay U3A Shared Learning group and one member from Teign U3A. We did the research for Teignmouth and Shaldon Museum, looking at the Trade between Teignmouth and Newfoundland. The project took 18 months to complete at the end we did a presentation to the Museum members on 14th March 2015.

The blog will record the Social History of the trade, individual people who were involved e.g. Bye boat keepers, Fish Merchants, Manufactures, Planters or Boat Keepers who resided in Newfoundland, Ship-owners, Exporters of good, and Farmers.

We have received quite a lot of interest following the publication of two articles in two magazines. And we hope to hear from more people who have a connection with the trade.

Please contact us either via this blog or through the One Place Study home page for Teignmouth.
