Hi Guys

Please Remember that ships also docked in Montreal as well. I am also
looking for similar information for the around the same time.

Maybe there was a local newspaper that kept track of arrivals? Bolton,
in
his book SCOTCH-IRISH PIONEERS IN ULSTER AND AMERICA, was able to
identify
some of the vessels that brought the five ships from the Bann Valley,
Co.
Derry to Boston in 1718 by notices in the BOSTON NEWSLETTER. Maybe
there
was such a newsletter for St. John's?
