NOTE: * Shipbuilding has been carried out in Leith since the early 14th century, with The Hull & Leith Shipping Co., forming in circa 1800. They joined, in 1836, with Leith & Hamburgh Shipping Co. (founded 1816) to form the Hull & Leith Steam Packet Co. and started trading between these two ports. In 1847 they merged with Edinburgh & Dundee Steam Packet Co. to become the Forth & Clyde Shipping Co. Due to the regular sailings between Leith and Hamburg, the company name changed in 1852 to Leith, Hull & Hamburgh (later Hamburg) S. P. Co. The company went forwards and expanded to operate cargo and passenger lines throughout the 19th and the 20th centuries.
