JOHN ROBINSON OF AYRES QUAY, DEPTFORD

VESSELS BUILT BY 'JOHN ROBINSON'

The 'John Robinson' shipyard listing can be found here.

The information which follows (or more accurately at this moment will follow), mainly originates from the research of Peter Kirsopp who has kindly provided a list of vessels built by John Robinson & other members of the Robinson family. Peter's list, an 'rtf' Word file, is available here. It will surely, in due course, be further modified by the webmaster as new data is located.

The numbering at left below is the webmaster's numbering. No official lists would seem to exist. The vessels are listed in alphabetic order within each year - so you and I can find them easily.
