First Ship Arrivals from the Sea, at the Port of Quebec, 1813 to 1833

contributed by Harry Dodsworth - extracted from the Montreal Gazette, May 7, 1832 and May 6, 1834

Then as now, ice conditions varied considerably from year to year. This table was published in 1832 and 1834. While these were the dates of the first ship, the main spring fleet usually started arriving a few days later. Some of these ships were emigrant ships, others were cargo ships, coastal traders or even a naval vessel.
