West India Trade

Post by Revaquess »

Hello everybody,
This is my first post on the forum in search of information related to my direct ancestor named John Essex HALL (Scarborough 1767-Dunkirk 1826). According to the HEIC Archives, he started his sailing carreer round 1783 in the "West India Trade before the mast". Could anyone advice me on the best way to get information about this particular trade & their ships/sailors/archives/ ... in the XVIIIth century ?
I thank you right now for your kind attention and send you greetings from Brussels.
