 Notes:   Brig Cicero, Israel Lovitt, master. The portledge listed four mariners in the name column, but it listed 9 wages in the advance wages column, five of which were without names. The last five advance wages were for 42s. 8d. each, which were lower than the other four. These were undoubtedly the wages of the seamen, whoever they were. I have based the monthly wage on the advance wages.
