Excerpt from Beverly Privateers in the American Revolution

The harbor was for vessels of the size used in those days, a safe, convenient and fairly deep one. In the harbor between the Point and the site of the bridge now connecting Beverly and Salem lay the wharves, the first, counting from the ocean side, Union wharf, now Guffey's, next Bartlett's and Glover's, later occupied by Colonel Israel Thorndike. At the head of this wharf on Water Street was a large storehouse with an archway entrance from the street. Next Lovett's and Standley's wharf, then Stephen Nourse's wharf, later occupied by Nourse Stephens, next followed in order, Pickard and Woodbury's, J. H. Morgan's, Foster and Lovett's, Picket's, Ober's now Preston's, Deacon John Safford's, and Distillery wharf. There were also a few wharves in Bass River, used during the war for captured prizes. At the head of the wharves and along Water Street were the warehouses of the Beverly merchants, and along the shore from the Point toward the Cove were the fish ¿akes where the salted cod were dried in the sun. Most of the merchants and im porters did a retail as well as wholesale business, selling to the fisher men, salt, nets, lines and clothing, and exchanging dress goods, rum, sugar, linen and ¿our for fish, grain, lumber and country produce.

Prior to the Revolutionary War Beverly was essentially a fishing village and all its commerce was based on this staple. In 1772 the fishing ¿eet consisted of 30 vessels of the following ownership, tonnage and value.
