This Dutch language document is one of one hundred and thirty eight bills of lading preserved at the National Archives, Kew, England, from the ship the Saint George of Hamburg (Master: Jan Martensdorp). The bills of lading use standard printed forms, which were filled out in Cadiz by the laders before the ship sailed for Ostend. Most of the bills of lading use Spanish printed forms, but there are roughly twenty-five bills of lading which use Dutch printed forms.

The MarineLives project team is currently uploading all 138 bills of lading for the Saint George to the MarineLives wiki. You can find clickable links to all bills of lading uploaded to date by clicking here

The Saint George sailed from Cadiz in October 1652, in the company of the Salvador of Hamburg and the Sampson of Lubeck. The three ships carried rich cargos of silver, together with some tobacco, drugs and other goods. All three ships were seized by the English. It was disputed in the English Admiralty Court as to whether the ships were bound legally for the Spanish Netherlands, or illegally for Amsterdam. The case was endowed with political as well as commercial weight - the Commonwealth, and then the Protectorate, was keen to have the bullion declared lawfull prize, but the Spanish government contested this.

For background on the ships see wiki page Three Silver Ships

Help is requested from a Dutch speaker to improve the Dutch transcription (both the printed text and the handwritten text].

Help is also requested from a Dutch speaker to provide an English language translation of the Dutch transcription

Volunteers who would like to help can either email us their suggestions, or we can give them a username and password to enter their suggestions directly into our MarineLives wiki.

Similar printed text appears in circa twenty five other bills of lading for the Saint George, so help from a Dutch speaker on the printed text will help us for all twenty five Dutch language bills of lading.]]
