Enjoyed going through the list Nicky.  I spotted one called' Annie' and one of the owners was John Walsh Master Mariner 1885.  When I am on my next visit later in the year, where can I check out these lists to see if he is my gt.grandad from King Street.  Anne

The only official  place you will get info on the "Annie" and her crew would be in the National Archives Bishop St. Dublin. However, not all of the ship's articles there carry the address of the captain. Some do, some don't . The articles are on micro film and they refer to them there as "Shipping Rolls ".

I was in Wexford in April trying to find origins of great grandfather William Hughes b.1836. His father by the same name is listed (marriage certificate) as 'fisherman'. Most people I spoke to in Wexford thought it unlikely that he (WH) would have lived in wexford town saying that most of the fishing was around Kilmore quay, new Ross etc. However extensive reading in Wexford library indicates that there were at least 100 boats fishing out of Wexford town early in 18th century. I am confident that WH jnr. left Wexford in 1857/58 when he appears in London and signs on as ordinary seaman on HMS Terrible (3-masted frigate with paddles and four funnels - fascinating ship. I have extensive info on this if interested). My reasons are based on the fact that summer herring fishing was banned in 1857 due to overfishing.

I note that several of the ships you list mention the name Hughes as master of owners. Do you know if fishing boats ,Gabbards / cots, would have been registered? If so have you any information on them since I have assumed that WH would have fished using one of them.

It would depend on the size of the vessel . Gabards and Cots are unlikely to have been registered. IMO
