Transferred from Her Majesty's Customs and Excise Office, Aberystwyth. 8 September 1980

Administrative History:
The Registers provide full details of the dimensions, ownership, history and ultimate fate of each ship registered at the port of Aberystwyth (They are not the record of the movement of ships into and out of The Port) 
The pre 1855 Shipping Registers include an Index at the front of each book. For these earlier Registers, transactions subsequent to the first registry are detailed in the Transactions Registers (Nos. 8-13 below) For the post 1855 Registers, the index to ships was kept in a separate book which has been retained at the Customs and Excise Office. From 1855 onwards, subsequent transactions are included at the rear of each book.
