About the journal

The Elizabeth Bray Journal begins on Sept 25th 1854.  It was passed down through the Bray family until it made it’s way into the hands of the Custom House Maritime Museum in Newburyport, Massachusetts, where it is currently under examination.  Elizabeth left her life in Newburyport behind and joined her husband, Captain Steven Bray, a merchant, as he traveled the world.  This blog has been created as a means by which you may follow her journey with us, in real time.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have!  Enjoy!

  1. Dissapointed by the halt in posts. Was looking forward to an interesting, long serial story. Anything we can do to help?
