About Hugh Cannon

History


Hugh worked in a fishery. He was honored with the position of Admiral or Vice-Admiral of the Peel fishing fleet. In addition to being superintendant of the taking of the sea harvest of fish, he operated his fishing smack in carrying the catch to the English markets, notably at Liverpool. During the weeks of surcease from his fishery activities, he probably also did a little business in the smuggling line. This industry was considered quite a reputable one by the Manx at the time. He owned his own vessel, which, though small, was seaworthy enough for quick trips to the coasts of France and Holland.
