Bill for pilot

Bill for pilot Josiah Richards


Document: Bill for the pilot Josiah Richards and tow boats for the ship the Fame . The Avon was not an easy river to navigate. Pilots, most of whom came from Pill in Bristol, took ships in and out of the river. Ships could anchor at Hungroad, near Pill, or at Kingroad, in the Severn Channel, waiting for the tide or for the crew to come aboard. The ship needed a pilot from the harbour in Bristol out to Lundy Island.
