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
• 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 1640 contains 40 pages, mostly written in Latin, but with some English.
In the case of this document, the tonnages of the vessels were not recorded.
Where possible, all names and cargoes have been translated in this transcript.

Details of the cargoes have only been transcribed in brief. Further information is available on each one from the original document.
For example, in the 'Swallow' coming from Youghall in Ireland on 3rd February 1640, the entry reads:
Johes Dobb [John Dobb] ind(iginous) [British merchant]
XXIX [29] baggs Lane hibernie uncombd [uncombed Irish wool] cont [containing] LXXIIII C’wt [79 hundredweight] valoris [worth] CCVII III IIII [£207.3s.4d]. [Customs subsidy] X VII II [£10.7s.2d].
Some commodities may not be obvious, so here are some definitions:
• Baise – A coarse woollen cloth.
• Battery – Metal articles of brass or copper.
• Burr stone – A millstone, the best quality stone for milling, only found in the Paris basin.
• Calico – A plain-woven textile made from unbleached cotton.
• Cordage – Any type of ropes, especially for ships rigging.
• Devon dozens – A coarse lightweight cloth usually 12 yards long - hence the name ‘dozens’.
