Each Crew Agreement has a seperate column dedicated to recording the names of Young Persons  under the age of 18 years of age, and account of all Apprentices employed on board during the voyage.
If previously coasting or fishing or apprenticed then they would not be in possession of a Continuous Certificate of Discharge.

Thank you again, Hugh.

I feel like I almost know what I'm talking about now. ;-)

Am I correct in thinking that the only way to inspect many/most of the crew agreements is still to visit some archive in Newfoundland?

No. The collection of Crew Agreements stored in the Maritime History Archive at the Memorial University of Newfoundland amount to approx 70% of Crew Agreements of British and Empire Ships from 1863 until 1976 . Not Indexed 1951 -1976.
 Approx 10% are at TNA Kew, including all from 1939 -1950.
Approx 10% are in NMM Greenwich including 1861, 1862 and years ending in five.up to 1995
Most before 1860 are at Kew.
Some are in local record offices.
Most after 1977 except the ones at NMM Greenwich have been destroyed.
Crew Agreements are online for the years 1881 (MHA) and 1915 (NMM)

Can you tell us the name and if possible the official number, together with dates, of the vessels you are concerned with?

Thanks but Iím not looking for any at the moment. Itís just that people are advising Stirrick to search out crew lists and I remembered that, in the days when I was looking, it seemed quite a task as many of the records I wanted werenít easily available in the UK.
