Sea Captains: San Francisco 1800s

New York

From a reader: I was delighted to find my great-uncle, Charles E. Foye, listed on your "Captains" page! What a very pleasant surprise.

However, I did want to let you know of a couple of corrections to the hard work that Stephen McLeod of VA did.

Uncle Charles is listed on your page as "Charles E. Foy, 31 Fulton St." In actuality, his name was spelled Charles E. Foye, and the address in the SF Directory for 1889 (and other years, in fact) was 831 Fulton St. I'm not certain where the "e" and the "8" disappeared to, but they do belong with him.

FYI, here are the listings for him in several years of SF and Oakland directories:

I don't know if you want to revise the page or not, but I did feel I ought to contact you. I think your web site is just great, and very helpful to historians, genealogists, and maritime fans.

The Sea Chart

The Illustrated History of Nautical Maps and Navigational Charts
The Sea Chart.The Sea Chart.John Blake
The sea chart was one of the key tools by which ships of trade, transport and conquest navigated their course across the oceans. John Blake looks at the history and development of the chart and the related nautical map, in both scientific and aesthetic terms, as a means of safe and accurate seaborne navigation. This handsome work contains 150 color illustrations including the earliest charts of the Mediterranean made by thirteenth-century Italian merchant adventurers, as well as eighteenth-century charts that became strategic naval and commercial requirements and led to Cook's voyages in the Pacific, the search for the Northwest Passage, and races to the Arctic and Antarctic.
