This is a list of various ships at the Isle of Wight on the night of the 1871 census.  I have only listed the ones below where the crew came from other parts of the country, namely "Strays".  I have done my best with the ages, but as they are very unclear, they could vary.  If you would like more detail concerning the ship or crew, please
email me here.  I can also search for others not mentioned, as this is by no means complete.
