Extracts from http://www.explorenorth.com/whalers/features/arcticwhalers-misc.htm: Captains listed in Arctic Whalers, by Basil Lubbock. Lubbock states that he has tried to give a complete history of the whaling trade, its ships and seamen, from the earliest days right down to the outbreak of the Great War. See also the Whalers' Heritage Project http://www.explorenorth.com/whalers/index.html . See also http://www.whitby-yorkshire.co.uk/whaling/whaling.htm.
