Yes, that was his real name.

Preserved Fish, a prominent New York City shipping merchant, died on this date (July 23) in 1846.

Born in Portsmouth on July 3, 1766, he was the son of a blacksmith with the same name.

A bank president and an early broker of the New York Stock & Exchange Board, the young Preserved (pronounced “pre-SER-vedd”) ran away from home, learned the seafaring trade and became the captain of his own whaling ship at age 21.

Later he became one of the leaders in the non-sabbatarianism movement, which claimed that religious liberty allowed one not to observe a weekly rest or day of worship.
