Definitely hard to read!  Here's my pitiful attempt to fill in a couple of gaps:

1818 I think the last column says From Rye to Quebec &c (etc)
1822   Brig ??? -  Seaman -  North American .....
John of Greenock  -  Chief Mate -  Whale Fishing
Suffolk: Pearl(e),  Garnham, Southgate, Blo(o)mfield,Grimwood/Grimwade,Josselyn/Gosling
Durham/Yorkshire: Sedgwick/Sidgwick, Shadforth
Ireland: Davis
Norway: Torreson/Torsen/Torrison

Very little success with names of vessels. The only one I'm almost sure about is the last. I don't see a date after 1822.
1818  Brig  _  of Ayr                                 Apprentice       From Ayr to Quebec
1822  - *     Castle.....                                Seaman           North _   _
        Ship  _ Greenock                              Second Mate    West Indies
        Ship  _ Greenock                              Chief Mate       Whale Fishing
        Ship Lord Newfoundland?                   Chief Mate      from Sydney to London
        Brig Ba..... of Troon                           Chief Mate       Go......  (Gourock?)
        Ship Orantall   -*                               Chief Mate       Glasgow to East Indies
        Brig Margary of Ayr                            Master            North American Trader
        Lady Graham of Maryport                   Chief Mate       North American Trader
* Might be ditto marks. If so, the first 2 vessels were brigs and 6th & 7th vessels belonged to Troon.
Ayr, Greenock, Troon and Glasgow are ports on SW coast of Scotland. So is Gourock, which is why I thought it might have been a port I couldn't read. Maryport is on the coast of Cumberland in North West England, so it's down the coast from the Scottish ports.
I'm doubtful about "Lord Newfoundland". "Lord Hungerford" looks more likely.

How about  Brig Jessie of Ayr

I thought it was Lady Gordon of Maryport.  But perhaps Graham is correct. I offer it as an alternative.

There may have been news about the vessels and their voyages in newspapers e.g. departures and arrivals, cargo, name of master, shipwreck. Newspapers in early 19th century include "Ayr Advertiser" (then called "Air Advertiser"), "Glasgow Herald", "Cumberland Pacquet & Ware's Whitehaven Advertiser" (Whitehaven is along the coast from Maryport.), "Carlise Journal", Carlisle Patriot".
Also "Lloyd's List".

If 4th ship is "John" then 1st could be "Jessie".
I won't argue for Lady Graham. The only part I'm sure about is "Lady G".

1822   Brig ??? -  Seaman -  North American .....
North American Trader like the final 2 voyages?
Tobacco from North American states was an important industry in Glasgow.
Also the Scottish cotton industry which imported raw material from N. America. "The Rise and Fall of the Scottish Cotton Industry 1778-1914" by Anthony Cooke.
 Review.  https://reviews.history.ac.uk/review/959  Mentions the Atlantic trade. "Glasgow and the Clyde being to the west of Scotland (and well beyond) what Liverpool and the Mersey were to Manchester and its hinterland."

The third listing, where he is second mate, and headed to the West Indies, could be the Christian.
I can only find a listing for 1821 when it sailed Port Glasgow to Jamaica, but my eyes are seeing "Christian".
