Ingates

Ingates were the duties on articles imported into the Island - exports were noted under 'Outgates' - articles paid duties according to a published book of rates though as several were on an 'ad valoum' basis this was somewhat at the discretion of the custom's officer.

This page gives an example of entries - two pages covering 1 week from Monday 5th September 1748 .

Weights are in cwt:lb (112 1b ~ 50kg) - 20 cwt = 1 ton - however not always clear where the division was

Note no consistency of Names of ships and masters between different entries.
