Nantucket, an isolated island off the coast of Massachusetts, is the home Milford Haven’s forefathers left to establish a whaling station 3,000 miles away across the Atlantic Ocean, here in the south west corner of Wales.

In 1793 Sir William Hamilton engaged Sir Charles Greville, a politician and something of an entrepreneur, to establish a settlement on his lands north of the Daugleddau river. Greville wrote to the Nantucketers and offered them the opportunity to embark upon a new whaling enterprise here, to supply the growing demand for whale oil to service an increase in street lighting. Between May and July of that year, seven Quaker-whaler families from Nantucket set sail for Pembrokeshire.

The success of the whaling station was short-lived, and by 1800 Milford Haven had become a Royal Naval Dockyard, and by 1888 a fish docks. Nevertheless, the families from Nantucket left a lasting legacy which lives on to the present day, with many streets and locations carrying their names, including Starbuck and Bunker. Our Quaker-whaler founders were a formative part of our historic haven.

Finished in luxurious fabric woven at Melin Tregwynt in north Pembrokeshire, Nantucket features the Knot Garden design, in ‘Jemima’ red.
