A printed, vellum certificate of admittance from Trinity House, the official Admiralty department, made out (in manuscript) to Capt. Joseph Huddart and affixed with the corporation's seal at upper left, appearing next to the printed arms of Trinity House and their motto "Trintas In Unitate". "The Master, Wardens and Assistants of the Guild, Fraternity or Brotherhood of the most Glorious and Undivided Trinity, and of Saint Clement in the Parish of Deptford-Stroud, in the County of KENT, hereby Certify whom it may Concert, That Capt. Joseph Huddart of St. Paul's Church Yard Mariner, was duly admitted and sworn a Younger Brother of the said CORPORATION, on the 3rd of June 1790 and is thereby intitled to all the Liberties, Franchises and Privileges which the Members of the said CORPORATION enjoy by Prescription, or by Virtue of any Royal Charters or Grants from the KINGS OR QUEENS of this Realm, or otherwise ...". The certificate appears to be signed on behalf of Trinity House by Wildborg and Hector Roase. Beneath the declaration is a printed passage of text further explaining the franchises and liberties. Huddart was an East India Company Captain, hydrographer and civil engineer, as well as a Fellow of the Royal Society. A number of his charts were published by Sayer and Bennett and Laurie and Whittle in the late eighteenth century. A fascinating mariner's document.
