These lists cover four core North Eastern American states: Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New Jersey. Each of these states had its own series of shipping lists, though time and other causes have rendered these series incomplete. The Naval Office Shipping Lists for Maryland cover from 1689 to 1764, with coverage of the ports at Annapolis, Cecil County, Patuxent and Pocomoke. The Shipping Lists for Massachusetts feature the port of Boston for the years 1686 to 1765. The shipping Lists for New Hampshire cover the ports of Newcastle, Port New Hampshire and Piscataqua from 1723 to 1769. The Shipping Lists for New Jersey cover the ports of Bridlington (Burlington), Perth Amboy and Salem from 1722 to 1764.
