Transcriber’s notes:
Port Books for the combined ports of Appledore, Bideford and Barnstaple are housed in the National Archives from 1565 to 1745.
There are some gaps due to non-survival of records, and other gaps due to damaged documents.

Typically these books record:
• Date of entry
• Name of ship
• Tonnage of vessel
• Port where vessel is registered
• Port where vessel is going to, or coming from
• Name of the Captain or Master of the vessel
• Name of the merchant responsible for the goods
• Whether the merchant is English or foreign
• Description of the cargo, including the method of storage (barrels, casks, bags), the weight (hundredweights, pounds) and the value for the purposes of assessing tax to be paid.

The following officials were responsible for checking the cargoes and recording the tax due:
• Collector or ‘Customer’ – made a return of all goods exported or imported and all moneys received, for which he issued a cocket (receipt).
• Controller – made a similar return but did not receive the payments.
• Searcher – appointed to prevent fraud, who had to make examine the goods and return a warrant to show he had done so.
• Surveyor - appointed to check the work of the Searcher.

The book for 1606 (E 190/939/13, Controller's book) contains 20 pages, mostly written in Latin, but with some English. A duplicate 15-page book (E 190/939/14, Customers book) contains the same information, and was used to fill the unreadable gaps in book 13.

Details of the cargoes have been transcribed in brief. Further information on quantity and value may be available from the original document. For example, on 18th Jan 1606, an entry reads:
Le Pelican de Barn(staple) LXXX doli [80 tons] Johes Burges [John Burges] est M'r [is master of the vessel] vers(u)s Milford [from Milford (Haven)] et ab unde St Sabastians [also from San Sebastian] XVIII die Januarii [18th January].
Willi[m]us Shapley de Barn(staple) mc ind(inous) [British merchant] pro uno packett [for one packet] cont(aining) XII pece [12 pieces] single bayes et unu(m) pece pro wrapp(ers) [one piece of wrapping]. Value XXIII£ [£23] Sub(sidy) [illegible in margin].
Plus pro unu(m) packett con IIII pece [4 pieces] double bayes et dome pece wrapp(ers) [in two wraps]. Value XVI£ [£16] Sub(sidy) [illegible in margin].
Some commodities may not be obvious, so here are some definitions:
• Acquavita – Distilled wine, eg: Brandy.
• Baise – A coarse woollen cloth.
• Coney skins – Rabbit skins.
• Cordage – Any type of ropes, especially for ships rigging.
• Devon dozens – A coarse lightweight cloth usually 12 yards long - hence the name ‘dozens’.
• Farnando buckewood – A reddish brown dye, also called brasil, block wood or logwood; from a corruption of Pernambuco, Brazil.
• Hogshead – A barrel for liquids, containing about 54 gallons.
• Northern playnes - [unclear], possibly a cloth from the north of England.
• Penistone – A coarse woollen cloth formerly used to make clothes.
• Flock – Wool refuse or shearings.
• Frieze – A coarse woollen, plain weave cloth with a nap on one side.
• Kersey – Coarse woollen cloth with a smooth back, derived from the village of Kersey in Suffolk.

• Pilton frieze – presumably frieze made at Pilton in Barnstaple.
• Raisins solis – Sun dried grapes (raisins).
• Rugg – A coarse frieze, a frieze cloak or mantle. Originally imported from Ireland, sometimes called 'Waterford rugg'.
• Sack – Fortified wine imported from mainland Spain or the Canary Islands.
• Saxafrase wood – Probably 'wood saxifrage' (Saxifraga mertensiana), although what this might be used for, is unclear.
• Sayes - Cloth of fine texture resembling serge, sometimes partly of silk.
• Serge – A type of twill fabric with diagonal ridges on both sides. French serge was softer and finer than English serge.
• Shumack – Dried berries of the Sumac plant, used in dying and tanning.
• Staves – Shaped wood used for constructing barrels and hogsheads.
• Succad – Fruit preserved in sugar; sweetmeats
• Train [oil] – Drained fish oil, usually from cod.
