About Owners
 
Boston Deep Sea Fishing & Ice - Boston Deep Sea Fisheries - Fred Parkes, Grimsby

Formed in 1885 with vessels initially based at Hull, but a fish quay and stores were shortly after built at Boston, Lincolnshire. In 1922 owner Fred Parkes decided to move the business to Fleetwood and Grimsby. This marked the end of Boston as a major fishing port. During the years that followed the company acquired many subsidiaries and owned fleets in Fleetwood, Hull, Grimsby and Lowestoft. It was liquidated and reformed as Boston Deep Sea Fisheries. The company ended its operations in 1979.
