We are a group of volunteer researchers based at Chatham Historic Dockyard. This website contains original research focusing on the people and trades of Chatham Dockyard and the ships that were built, repaired and dismantled and covers the period 1750 to 1850.

This is an ongoing project and we will continue to add new pages, biographies and documents as our research develops.

If anyone has any information about any of the subjects on this site please get in contact via the Contact Us page.
