The Essex pinky became popular c.1820, the design embodied sea-worthiness, comfort in heavy weather and good sailing qualities, combined with carrying capacity.

Between 1815 and 1840, the pinky schooner became very popular in the mackerel fishing, where it was known as a "jigger" from the type of fishing jig used.
