161. Tobacco imported into London in 1775

(Northamptonshire Record Office, Fitzwilliam (Burke) MSS. A.xxv.74)

[N.B. All except those marked by asterisk are known Chesapeake merchants. Entries referring to the same firm under different styles are combined. The political uncertainties of 1775 make this an unrepresentative year with some established firms, e.g. O. Hanbury and S. Grove, being less active than usual.]
