The vessel would seem to have been Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1815 thru 1829/30, later from 1841/42 thru 1844/45, & not thereafter. Owned initially by 'Union.Sh.' for service ex London, soon Gibbs for service from Liverpool to Newfoundland & Cork to Barbados. In 1819/20 J. Ord, her captain, became her owner for service from Liverpool to Brazil - but in 1820/21 Gibbs & Co. for the same service. Kell & Co. of Newcastle were her owners from 1841/42 thru 1844/45 for service from Shields to France. Later registered at Whitby. Turnbull's Register of 1856 records J. M. & A. Granger of Robin Hood's Bay her then owners with M. Granger her captain. Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 (Whitby) states James, Ann and Michael Granger & Thomas Barnard, all of Robin Hood's Bay. On Nov. 14, 1860, per line 866 here, the 141 ton square was involved in a collision near Harwich & sank. Crew of 7 - no lives lost. The vessel was then stated to be owned by Jas. Granger.

The vessel would seem to be Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1817/18 thru 1849/50 & not thereafter. Owned in 1817/18 by Peacock mainly for service from Cork, later London, to Quebec, Canada. LR lists the vessel in 1825/26 as owned by McVicar for service from Leith to the Baltic & in 1831/32 by Arndale & Co. for service ex Exmouth. In 1834/35, Bell & Co. of Newcastle became her owner for service from Newcastle to London. Cormick of North Shields became her owner in 1844/45 for service from Newcastle or Shields to London. Turnbull's Register of 1856 records T. Knight of Blyth as her then owner, while Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 states James Downey of South Shields. On Nov. 3, 1860, per line 849 here, the 228 ton snow went ashore between Wells & Blakeney (Norfolk coast), while en route from Shields to London with a cargo of coal. Crew of 12 - no lives lost. The vessel was then stated to be owned by James Downey. I had previously recorded that Bishop was her owner in 1822/23 but cannot recall where I read that.

Lloyd's Register data yet to be researched. On Dec. 30, 1860, per line 499 here, the 188 ton brig was abandoned & sunk off St. Abb's Head, Berwickshire, while en route from Shields to Dieppe, France, with a cargo of coal. Can that routing be correct? St. Abb's Head is far to the north of Shields. None of the crew of 8 was lost. The owner was recorded as being William Wear.

I believe this vessel is Lloyd's Register recorded from 1822/23 (then 8 years old) thru 1828/29 (then 13 years old) & not thereafter. Owned by Moon & Co. for service ex London. Turnbull's Register of 1856 lists E. Richardson of Sunderland as her then owner. As does Christie's Shipping Register of 1858. In late May 1860, per line 1018 here (note - date of build & OM # incorrect), the 148 ton square went missing while en route from Sunderland to London. The entire crew of 6 were lost. The vessel is stated to have been then owned by Elizabeth Richardson.

So far as I can see, the 226 ton vessel was Lloyd's Register ('LR') recorded from 1818/19 thru 1830/31, owned by R. Fenwick, for service ex Hull to St. Petersburg, Russia, & Hamburg, Germany, but soon from London to St. Petersburg. From 1836/37 thru 1841/42 the 227 ton vessel was owned by S. Oxley of Newcastle, soon of Hartley, Northumberland, for service from Sunderland to London. I cannot spot the vessel in later LR editions. Christies Register records the vessel in 1858 as owned by George B. Purvis, of North Shields. On Nov. 21, 1860, per line 441 here, the 218 ton snow was lost on the Oester (Netherlands coast?) while en route from Newcastle to Schiedam (Rotterdam) with a cargo of coal. None of the crew of 8 was lost. The owner was recorded as being G. B. Purves.

Lloyd's Register needs yet to be researched re his vessel. Turnbull's Register of 1856 states that the vessel was then owned by J. Young of South Shields and M. Young of Hastings. As does Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 - J. Young of South Shields and Mary Young of Hastings.

The vessel would seem to have been first Lloyd's Register ('LR') recorded in 1822/23, a brig 8 years old, owned by Milbourn. In 1833/34, then aged 17, the vessel became owned by J. Wright of Newcastle possibly for service ex Dublin ('Du'), later service from Newcastle to the Baltic. Porter & Co., of Newcastle, became the vessel's owner in 1840/41 for service to London. The vessel seems not to be recorded in LR from 1845/46 thru 1848/49. From 1850/51, the vessel was owned by Watson & Co. of Sunderland for Sunderland to New York. later to London & South America. In 1858, Turnbull's Register lists the vessel as owned by R. Watson & I. M. Husdell, both of Sunderland. The vessel would seem last to have been LR recorded in 1859/60. What happened to her, I wonder? Need help!

I still need to research the Lloyd's Register entries re this vessel. However, in the 1817/18 edition, the vessel was owned by R. Kirton for service from London to Antwerp. In the 1839/40 edition, the vessel was owned by W. Clark of Wisbeach. Was registered at Stockton. Turnbull's Register of 1856 advises that the Stockton registered vessel was then owned by J. Burnicle of Middlesboro', her captain. On May 28, 1860, per line 701 here, the 122 ton brig  went ashore at 'Nw. Fall Foot Staithes' (near Whitby, perhaps) while en route from London to Hartlepool. Then owned by W. H. Smith.

The vessel is included here because on May 28, 1860, per line 190 here, the 108 ton square foundered off Kissingland, (might mean Kessingland, Suffolk) while en route from Middlesbrough to the Baltic. It would seem that none of the 6 man crew were lost. The vessel was then owned by John Drayson. ON 19920 was Mercantile Navy List listed at Ramsgate in 1857 & 1860. Possibly built in 1836? I say that the data is 'suspect' because I cannot reliably track the vessel in any edition of Lloyd's Register. There was, however, a Sunderland built brig of the name, of 119 tons, listed from 1817/18 thru 1824/25. Need help!

The vessel is Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1818/19 thru 1844/45 & not thereafter. Initially owned by Oswald for service ex London. Only briefly though, since LR of 1819/20 lists G. Hust as her new owner, for most varied service indeed - to St. Petersburg, Cape of Good Hope, Genoa, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, St. Lucia & Cadiz, ex Bristol, London & Plymouth. LR of 1830/31 records the brief ownership of Hutchinson, with J. Hurst the new owner from 1831/32 - for service from London to Bremen, Germany. Became G. Hurst of London in 1834/35 for service to London ex Sunderland. From 1839/40 thru 1844/45, the vessel's owner was Wawn & Co. of South Shields for service between London & South Shields. On Dec. 29, 1860, per line 1021 here, the 198 ton brig went missing while en route from the Tyne to London. The entire crew of 8 were lost. The vessel is stated to have been then owned by G. H. Wawn.
