Scope and content

The series consists of only two volumes and covers the period from the mid-18th century to the early 19th century containing the data on sequestrations of money and shares that were carried out based on judgments that had been reached by the Maritime Court. Judgments for the period from 1753 to 1757 are written a tergo in the first volume of this series. Sequestrations were usually written in a following format: D'ordine e mandato ut supra e ad istanza di Salamon Terni, Antonio Flori riviere riferi d'aver sequestrato li due caratti di ragione di Giovanni d'Antonio Cresci esistenti nel bastimento al presente diretto da capitano Giovanni Lubislavich (vol. 2, f. 106).

The series is very important for the research of the history of maritime affairs of the Jewish population in the Republic. The data shows that many Ragusan Jews were not only owners of ship shares, that is co-owners of ships, but they would also often grant so-called "maritime loans". Most often these references indicate various members of some Ragusan Jewish families such as Ambonetti, Levi Mandolfo, Luzzena, Pardo, Russo, Terni, Tolentino, Valenzin.
