The Bermuda Gazette was a Bermudian English-language weekly newspaper. Published from 1784-1816 by Joseph Stockdale (and by his three daughters from 1803-1816)[2][3], it was Bermuda's first newspaper.[1][2] In 1782, the Bermudian Legislature arranged for a printing press, and brought Stockdale from England to run it.[3]

Joseph Stockdale and the newspaper were honoured on Bermuda stamps in 1984 on the 200th anniversary of Bermuda's postal service and newspaper.[3]
