Sea, Sand & Sail: Employment of the Sea

Historic Merchant Ship

England has a coastline of some 2,748 miles with no place more than 75 miles from the sea. It is not unsurprising that it is a proud seafaring nation with many family connections to employment in all sort of roles, whether merchant seamen in trade or fishing to those that were employed in government service such as in Customs and Excise, the Coastguard service and Ridings Officers.
