The Newlyn Archive has just produced an interesting book about 'The Story of Newlyn Harbour'. Seeing there has been some discussion about the Quick surname I thought the following might be of interest to some members of this site.
I quote from the book " Newlyn did not have a new pier when Henry Kelynack of Newlyn set out on his voyage on the top sail schooner Queen of the West from Penzance to Buenos Aires in 1851. The seventeen year old (baptised September 14, 1834) was just starting his training for a Masters certificate (awarded eight years later on April 23, 1859). He wrote a personal log of his voyage on the Queen of the West which began on June 2, 1851 and ended on February 2, 1852 taking 7 months and 14 days. The Master of Queen of the West was Stephen Tregarthen and other Newlyn men on board were Thomas Glasson , James Baker Gubbs and Israel Quick"

The above book can be bought from the Newlyn Archive.
