1 Carley (a sloop)

An unknown South Shore, Durham, builder

The vessel is not Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed. Turnbull's Register of 1856 lists E. Burdes, of Southwick, as her then owner, which name Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 clarifies as meaning Edward Burdes. The Mercantile Navy List of 1870 also records Edward Burdes as her owner. On Sep. 15, 1870, per line 896 here, the 23 ton sloop burned at Hartlepool, while en route from Sunderland to Hartlepool with a cargo of lime. Crew of 2 - none lost. Then owned by Edw. Burdes. The vessel is interesting in that it would have carried lime from the Burdes/Burdis lime kilns located on the N. bank of the Wear at Sunderland - lime kilns which still exist today & are referred to here. 'Carley' was, in fact, the name of the quarry from which the limestone was extracted, hence presumably the vessel name.

A Gales build list in these pages states that the vessel was built for the builder's own account - presumably until it was sold. The vessel is Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1827/28 thru 1844/45, from 1846/47 thru 1848/49, & from 1855/56 thru 1869/70. Thru 1837/38, the snow was owned by C. Balfour, of Montrose, for service from Leith to both Pillau (now Baltiysk, Russia), & to the Baltic, from Liverpool to Cadiz, Spain, & to Riga, Latvia, from London to Riga, ex Belfast & London to the Grand Canary Islands. G. Balfour was the vessel's captain for the period from 1829/30. LR had some unusual comments re the vessel for the 3 years from 1835-36 - 'wants repairs'. From 1838/39, Pegg & Co. of London is LR listed as the vessel's owner for service from Shields to London. From 1846/47 to 1848/49, S. Stokoe of South Shields is listed as the vessel's owner for service from Newcastle to London. Coltman of Shields is listed, briefly (in 1855/56), as the vessel's owner for service as a Shields coaster. From 1856/57 thru to 1869/70, Howard & Co. of Lynn, Norfolk, is listed as owner of the Lynn registered vessel for service as a Lynn coaster. J. Howard was her captain for that entire period. It would seem that at some point in its lifetime the vessel was also registered at Dover (Kent), & later at Maldon (Essex). The Mercantile Navy List of 1870 lists Samuel Hawkes of Maldon as the then owner of the 118 ton vessel. On Feb. 10, 1871, per line 1868 here, the 118 ton brig was stranded at Bridlington, East Yorkshire, while en route from Sunderland to Rochester, Kent, with a cargo of coal. Crew of 6 - none lost. Then stated to be owned by Samuel Hawker. On that day, i.e. Feb. 10, 1871, many ships were lost or damaged by a terrific gale which affected the NE coast of England. An extensive account of the loss at the Tyne of Jabez, another Sunderland built ship, can be read here. Can you add anything?

I have not researched the vessel thru Lloyd's Register. Turnbull's Register of 1856 lists the vessel as then owned by J. (John) Hutchinson of Sunderland. As does Christie's Shipping Register of 1858. Christie's also advises, at page bottom, that the vessel had been lost.

An unknown Southwick builder

The vessel is Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1825 thru 1861/62 with a couple of exceptions - 1845/46 & 1850/51. The vessel was initially owned by 'Ormiston' for service from London to the Humber, with 'J. Ormston' being LR recorded as the vessel's captain to part way thru 1827 & Ormston in 1829 & 1830. In 1832, T. Ayre, of Lynn, Norfolk, became the vessel's owner for continued service from London to the Humber later for service from London to Shields. From 1836/37 thru 1838/39, per LR, 'Ceison & Co.' of Lynn became the vessel's owner for service from Newcastle to Lynn, with 'A. Ceison' the vessel's captain. Now it seems to me to be likely that the references to 'Ceison' were in error & should have read 'Curson' - from 1839/40, Curson & Co. of Lynn is listed as the vessel's owner with A. Curson the vessel's captain. It would seem that the Curson family owned the vessel for the rest of its lifetime, LR listing Curson & Co. as above, later A. Curson, later Curson, later R. H. Curson, all of Lynn, as the vessel's owners. Similarly with the vessel's captaincy - A. Curson, Curson, A. Curson & R. Curson. In the period of 1839/45, the vessel served both Archangel, Russia, & Cronstadt, St. Petersburg, Russia, ex Lynn, later for service as a Lynn coaster, in 1848/49 for service from Lynn to the Baltic, in 1855/56 for service as a Hartlepool coaster, & later for service ex Lynn. LR of 1861/62 notes that the vessel had been 'LOST'. On Apl. 3, 1862, per line 2190 here, & on Apl. 4, 1862 per line 2720 here, while trading 'coastwise', the 188 ton snow foundered off Rockcliff, Whitley Bay, then Northumberland now Tyne & Wear. Crew of 7 - none lost. Then owned by R. H. Curson or R. H. Curzon. The circumstances of the vessel's loss are not yet to hand. Can you tell us what happened?

The vessel is Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1826 thru 1863/64. The 260 ton brig was initially owned, thru 1831, by Gales & Co, presumably the vessel's builder, for service from Cork - with service to Quebec, Canada, referenced in 1826. The vessel became of 232 tons in 1834. From 1832 to 1852/53, the vessel, per LR, was owned by J. & G. Reay, initially of Newcastle but from 1836/37 of South Shields. For service from Liverpool to Wyborg (Vyborg, NW of St. Petersburg), Russia, in 1832/33, & in later years from Newcastle or Shields to the Baltic, from Hull to St. Petersburg (in 1839/40), from Shields to London, from Newcastle to the Mediterranean, & from Shields to Sweden (in 1852/53). The North of England Maritime Directory of 1848/49 lists J. C. Reay of South Shields, as her then owner. In LR of 1853/54 only, S. Stokoe, of Shields, is listed as her owner for service from Shields to London. From the next year, i.e. 1854/55 to 1863/64. Scott & Co, of Shields, is LR listed as the vessel's owner. Turnbull's Register of 1856 lists J. Scott of South Shields as her then owner. The available LR data from 1858/59 is limited - suggesting that the vessel may well have been sold. Indeed Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 lists Robert Morrison of South Shields as her then owner. 86.0 ft. long. On Oct. 20, 1862, per line 2830 here, the 231 ton snow was abandoned at sea while trading 'coastwise'. Crew of 8 - 2 lost. The location where the vessel was lost & its routing is not referenced - Robert Morrison is stated to have been her then owner. The circumstances of the vessel's loss are not yet to hand. Can you tell us what happened?

The vessel is recorded in Lloyd's Registers ('LR') from 1824 thru 1832, is cryptically listed from 1834 thru 1837/38. & from 1838/39 thru 1844/45 & not thereafter. The vessel was initially owned by Storey & Co., surely of Sunderland, for service ex London. From 1825 thru 1832 at least, J. Ridley & Co. owned the vessel for service as a Plymouth coaster - J. Ridley was listed as the vessel's captain for that period & in fact, in 1824 also. From 1838/39 thru 1841/42, J. Ritson of Sunderland owned the vessel, now a snow, for service from Sunderland to London. In 1841/42, Hudson of Sunderland, became the vessel's owner for service as a London collier. The North of England Maritime Directory of 1848/49 lists the vessel's then owners as being G. W. & R. M. Hudson of Sunderland. It would appear that the vessel was later registered at Shields. However in 1858, per Christie's Shipping Register (image soon) the vessel was registered at Stockton & owned by William and Matthew Scrafton, John Smith & Ann Evamy, all of Middlesbro'. On Mar. 6, 1861, per line 1131 here, the 185 ton square stranded at Dunkirk, France, while en route from Middlesbro' to Dunkirk. Crew of 8 - none lost. Then owned by Wm. Scrafton. The circumstances of the vessel's loss are not yet to hand. Can you tell us anything additional?

The vessel is recorded in Lloyd's Registers ('LR') from 1824 thru 1841/42, in 1849/50 & 1850/51, & not thereafter. During the first noted period the vessel was, per LR, owned by Bruce & Co., later at least of Aberdeen, Scotland, (stated in LR of 1834/35) later of Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, (LR of 1835/36 & later). For some varied service - from Liverpool to Palermo, Italy, in 1826 thru 1830 from Cowes to Malta, from Leith to Riga, Latvia, ex Hull, from London to Str'ts (Straits of Gibraltar, maybe?), from Peterhead to Gibraltar & for many years, from 1836/37, for service from London to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It became a brig of 111 tons in LR of 1834/35. In 1849/50 & 1850/51, the 102 ton brig was owned by 'Gravenor' for service from Dover, Kent, to Hamburg, Germany. The data in LR of 1850/51 is limited - the vessel was likely sold at about that time. The Mercantile Navy List of 1867 lists William Bussey of Dover as the then owner of the Dover registered 95 ton vessel. The equivalent list of 1870 lists John Tuthill, of Dover, as her then owner. Signal letters HVBR. On Feb. 3, 1872, per line 2951 here, the 95 ton schooner stranded at Filey ((Yorkshire now N. Yorkshire), while en route from Sunderland to Yarmouth, Norfolk, with a cargo of coal. None of the crew of 5 were lost. Her owner was then John Tuthill. The circumstances of the vessel's loss are not yet to hand. Can you tell us what happened?

The vessel is recorded in Lloyd's Registers ('LR') from 1824 thru 1833, & possibly, with fragmentary data, in the period from 1834 thru 1838/39. During the first such period, per LR, the vessel was owned by 'Havelock' for service from Exmouth, Devon, to 'StJhn' or 'StJohns' (possibly St. John's, Newfoundland), from 1828 for service from Liverpool to Narva (Baltic Sea, Estonia, perhaps), & from 1829 for service ex Cowes, Hampshire, from 1830 to 1833 from Cowes to Quebec, Canada. For a period in 1828, per LR, J. Havelock was the vessel's captain. It would seem that the vessel was registered at Scarborough thru 1857 & later at Shields. Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 lists the vessel as registered at Shields & owned by Alexander Main of South Shields & John Wm. Doust, of Greenwich. On Dec. 20, 1862, per line 2902 here, the 229 ton brig stranded at Herne Bay (S. shore of Thames estuary, Kent), while en route from London to Yarmouth, Norfolk, with a general cargo. Crew of 10 - none lost. Her owner was then stated to be Alexander Main. The circumstances of the vessel's loss are not yet to hand. Can you tell us what happened?

An unknown Hylton Ferry builder. Note

The vessel is recorded in Lloyd's Registers ('LR') from 1826 thru 1863/64. The vessel was owned, thru 1850/51, by the Forrest family - T. Forest, became F. Forest in 1827, just 'Forrest' from 1834 & T. Forrest again from 1846/47. The vessel would seem to have been registered at Sunderland (in 1834 & 1835/36) then at London, however the North of England Maritime Directory of 1848/49 records the vessel as owned by T. Forrest of London, & registered at Sunderland. For service out of London thru 1843/44, initially, in the period of 1826/29 to Jamaica, in 1830/32 to Quebec, Canada, in 1833 to Virginia, U.S.A., in the period of 1834/38 to Africa & in 1840/44 to Quebec. And in 1844/46 for service from Shields to the Mediterranean, soon from Sunderland or Shields to America, & ex London in 1850/51. The vessel, initially LR listed as a barque, became, from 1830, listed as a brig. It was briefly recorded, an error perhaps, as being of 333 tons in 1849/50 & 1850/51.In 1851/52, per LR, T. Forsyth, of Shields, became the vessel's owner for service ex Shields to such destinations as Quebec, America, & to the Mediterranean. Turnbull's Register of 1856 records T. Forsyth, of South Shields, as her then owner, which owner name Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 clarifies as meaning Thos. Forsyth. In 1860/61, per LR, the brig, now of 395 tons, became owned by Wilson & Co. of Shields for service from Shields to America & from 1861/62 to Spain. LR of 1863/64 notes that the vessel had been 'wrecked'. On Nov. 25, 1862, per line 2534 here, the 395 ton brig was abandoned while en route from Newcastle to Spain with a cargo of coal. Way off course it would appear - it was abandoned at Barbados. Crew of 12 - none lost. Then owned by Joseph Wilson. The circumstances of the vessel's loss are not yet to hand. Can you tell us what happened or otherwise add anything?

The webmaster has not researched this vessel. He notes, however, that Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 lists Timothy Linsley of Seaton Sluice as the then owner of the Newcastle registered vessel. Lloyd's Register ('LR') of 1864/65 notes that the vessel, then owned by T. Linsley, (of Seaton Sluice in 1859/60) had been 'wrecked'. It was then LR listed as a 'screw' but I think the listing is in error, rather it meant a snow. 84.5 ft. long

The Mercantile Navy List (insert 3603) associates three spellings of the name to this vessel hence the 3 names at left. Was the vessel Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed? I think it was, in years 1834/35 thru 1838/39 only, but the data, re Henry & Harriott & Henry & Harriet, is cryptic. The vessel was listed as being of 231 tons, registered at Newcastle and with a captain named H. Lawson. No owner name or other data. Turnbull's Register of 1856. lists H. & H. Lawson of South Shields as her then owner, data clarified by Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 to mean Harriot & Harriot Lawson jun., of South Shields. The Mercantile Navy List of 1870 lists (on page 175), Henry Lawson of Gatherby Castle, near Richmond, York, as the then owner of the 217 ton Henry and Harriot. On Jan. 8, 1870, per line 687 here, Henry & Harriott, a brig, foundered off Cromer, Norfolk, while en route from Shields to London with a cargo of coal. Crew of 7 - 2 lost. Then owned by Henry Lawson.

The vessel is recorded in Lloyd's Registers ('LR') from 1826 thru 1847/48, with a few exceptions, i.e. 1834 thru 1836/37 & 1845/46, & not thereafter. It was initially, per LR, owned by Gales & Co., presumably her builder - I have previously indicated in this space William Gales - for service in Devon, as an Exmouth coaster & from 1828 as a Plymouth coaster. In 1833, Lefevre & Co. were the vessel's owners for service as an Exeter coaster. From 1837/38 thru 1847/48, per LR, the vessel, now of 159 tons, was owned by J. Tizard of Weymouth, initially for service from Jersey, Channel Islands, to London, & from 1840/41 for service from Weymouth to Sunderland. From 1837/38 to part way thru 1840/41, J. Tizard was the vessel's captain. Only limited data is provided by LR of 1847/48. It becomes clear that J. Tizard owned the vessel for a great many more years than is so far indicated. The Mercantile Navy List of 1867 records John Tizard of Weymouth as her then owner, while the equivalent listing of 1870 names Samuel Webb, of Weymouth, to be her then owner. References to John Stanton, the vessel's captain from 1861 thru 1867, & George Parsons, the vessel's mate in 1863. Signal letters NGPK. On Nov. 11, 1872, per line 3116 here, the 147 ton brig sank near Borth, Cardiganshire, while en route from Poole, Dorset, to Runcorn (River Mersey, E. of Liverpool), with a cargo of clay. Crew of 7 - none lost. Then owned by James W. Board. The circumstances of the vessel's loss are not yet to hand. Can you tell us what happened?

Lloyd's Register ('LR') sure is a puzzle at times! The vessel is LR listed from 1829 thru 1844/45, then a gap of 7 years, then in 1851/52 & in 1852/53 only & not thereafter. Following 1852/53 there is another listing gap of 19 years, from 1853/54 thru 1872, when the vessel was lost. Can anybody explain who such 'puzzles' exist in early editions of LR? The vessel, a brig, was, in 1829/30, owned by Taylorson, for service from Bristol to Montreal, Canada. In 1834/35, the brig now of 266 tons, was owned by H. Stother of London, for service from London to Quebec, Canada, but from 1836/37 simply for service ex London. From 1838/39 thru 1844/45, the vessel is LR recorded as a ship. On Jul. 30, 1850, a vessel named Legatus struck but was got off. Don't know where. Maybe this vessel? In 1851/52, the vessel, now a snow, was LR listed as being owned by A. Strother of London for service from Shields to London. The LR listing of 1852/53 is of limited content - the vessel was likely sold at about that time. While LR is silent as to later ownership, the Mercantile Navy List of 1867, lists the vessel as then owned by Thomas Hodgson of South Shields. As does the 1870 equivalent. Signal letters PCQF. On Nov. 9, 1872, per line 2674 here, the 244 ton brig stranded at Cattegat (Kattegat, the sea area N. of the Danish straits islands, that lies between Denmark & Sweden), while en route from Gefle (now Gävle, Sweden), to England with a cargo of deals. Crew of 8 - none lost. Then owned by Margaret Hodgson. Can you tell us about the circumstances of her loss or otherwise add anything?

The vessel is Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1828 thru 1838/39 & not thereafter, though for many of those years, i.e. from 1834 thru 1838/39, the LR data is cryptic indeed, with no owner name or service indicated. The vessel was initially owned by T. Bateson, from 1829 T. Batson, likely of Newcastle. for service from Liverpool to Quebec, Canada, & from 1830 for service from Liverpool to New York. The vessel would seem to have been registered at Kirkaldy, at least from 1853. Turnbull's Register of 1856 records the vessel as being of 466 tons, registered at Kirkaldy, & owned by Kirkaldy Whale Fishing Company. Christie's Shipping Register of 1858, (image soon) lists the 406 ton vessel as still registered at Kirkaldy, & still owned by Kirkaldy Whale Fishing Co. On Jul. 5, 1862, per line 2288 here, the 406 ton square was lost in the Davis Straits (the strait on the W. side of Greenland) while whaling. A crew of 50 - none lost. Then stated to be owned by Patrick Don Swan. Can you tell us about the circumstances of her loss or otherwise add anything?

On Oct. 17, 1860, per line 387 here, the vessel, a brig, foundered off the Humber while carrying coals from Shields to Nieu Diep (Nieuwe Diep, N. end of North Holland Canal, effectively Amsterdam). 6 of the 7 man crew were lost.

In 1836/37, the vessel became owned by Ridley & Co. of Sunderland. From 1839/40 the owner became Tredwen of Padstow for service from Padstow to Quebec. W. Henry of Quebec owned the vessel briefly. In 1847/48 Jessimin of Dundee owned the vessel for service ex Liverpool. The vessel seems not to be LR recorded from 1848/49. What happened to her, I wonder? Need help!

Turnbull's Register of 1856 advises she was still owned by the Crozier family - by J. Crozier of Sunderland. Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 lists John, William, and William Eggleston Jun. & George H. Longridge, all of Sunderland, as her then owners. On Dec. 14, 1860, per line 904 here, the 204 ton snow foundered off St. Abb's Head, Berwickshire, while en route from Sunderland to London. Can that routing be correct? St. Abb's Head is far to the north of Sunderland. Crew of 10 - none lost. The vessel is stated to have been owned by William Eggleston.

The vessel is Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1829/30 thru 1846/47 except for 1839/40. It was initially a barque, owned by Holmes & Co., for service from London to the Cape of Good Hope (South Africa near the southern tip of Africa). In 1832, the vessel, now a brig of 212 tons, is noted as sailing to St. Helena (a tiny & remote island in the S. Atlantic, about 1,250 miles off the coast of southern Angola, surely not a destination rather a stop on the sailing route) ex London. In 1833/34, Horn & Co. are LR listed as the vessel's owner for service from London to the Cape of Good Hope. The LR entries from 1833 thru 1838/39 are cryptic indeed, with no owner name, vessel rig or routing indicated, etc. From 1840/41 thru 1846/47, F. Barnes of London is listed as the vessel's owner for service ex London to Trinidad (1842/43) to the West Indies (1843/44 thru 1845/46) & thereafter for service from Hull to London.

So far as I can see, the vessel is Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1834/35 thru 1846/47 & also from 1850/51 thru 1865/66. Owned thru 1846/47 by P. Stokill & Co. (or variations on the name), of Whitby, for service from Sunderland to the Baltic. P. Stokill was the vessel's captain. In 1839/40 LR refers to Stockell & Co, in 1845/46 to Stokel & Co. From 1850/51, the vessel was owned by M. Ligo of Whitby for service from Sunderland to London. Turnbull's Register of 1856 lists P. Stokill & E. Pearson, both of Whitby, & M. Ligo, of Sutton-bridge, as her then owners. Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 has a long list of then owner names - John Harrison, W. Thompson & Alice Waugh of Whitby, Wm. McKenzie of East Row & Edward Moorsum of Robin Hood's Bay. E. Moorson was the vessel's captain in 1856 though not referenced in LR. On Sep. 25, 1867, per line 57 here, the 200 ton brig was lost at Oldenburg, while en route from Hartlepool to Hamburg, Germany, with an unstated cargo, probably of coal. Crew of 7 - all lost. Oldenburg is a bit of a puzzle. It is in northern Germany but while relatively close to Bremen is most definitely inland. Perhaps there is another Oldenburg en route to Hamburg.

The vessel is Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1830 thru 1841/42 & from 1857/58 thru 1864/65. It would appear that the vessel was always registered at Sunderland. During the first LR period, thru 1833, the vessel was, per LR, owned by S. Moore, for service as a coaster ex, in successive years, Topsham, Exmouth & Teignmouth, all Devon. From 1834 thru 1841/42, the vessel is listed as owned by Moore & Co. of Sunderland, consistently for service from Sunderland to Archangel, Russia. The North of England Maritime Directory of 1848/49 lists the 206 ton brig as then owned by G. W. Hall & C. & W. Moore, all of Monkwearmouth & S. Moore of Southwick. During the period from 1857/58 thru 1864/65, the vessel was, per LR, again owned by Moore & Co. of Sunderland for service from Sunderland to Holland (in 1857/58), service as a Sunderland coaster (1858 thru 1860), & from 1860/61 for service from Sunderland to the Baltic. If one were to assume that, in the period of LR silence, i.e. from 1842/43 thru 1856/57, C. Moore was the vessel's captain, C. Moore was, amazingly, the vessel's captain for its entire lifetime of about 33 years. Turnbull's Register of 1856 lists G. W. Hall & C. Moore, both of Sunderland & E. & S. Moore, both of Southwick, as the vessel's then owners. While Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 lists George W. Hall & William Moore, both of Sunderland, & Sarah Moore of Southwick as the vessel's owners. 82.0 ft. long. LR of 1864/65 notes that the vessel had been 'wrecked'. On Dec. 19, 1862, per line 2890 here, the 187 ton snow foundered near the Dudgeon (20 miles N. of Wells, Norfolk, I think), while en route from an unstated port to London with a cargo of coal. Crew of 9 - none lost. Vessel stated to have then been owned by John Johnson, a name not LR referenced. Anything you can add?

The vessel is Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1834 thru 1838/39, but is listed most cryptically with just the captain's name (S. Howe or S. J. Howe) & the tonnage (217). It is also listed from 1839/40 thru 1843/44 owned by Howe & Co. of Sunderland for service from Sunderland to London. It is again listed from 1848/49 thru 1850/51, but not thereafter, still owned by Howe & Co. for service from Sunderland to London. Turnbull's Register of 1856 lists S. J. Howe of Sunderland as her then owner, which Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 clarifies as meaning Sanderson J. Howe. The Mercantile Navy List of 1870 records the vessel, now of 198 tons, as then owned by Wm. Watson of Seaham. Signal letters HPMT. On Feb. 8, 1870, per line 718 here, the 198 ton snow was stranded at Black Middens (rocks at the mouth of the Tyne, covered at high water) while en route from Seaham to London with a cargo of coal. They would appear to have been off course. Crew of 5 - none lost. Vessel then owned by William Watson.

William Gales

A 'Gales' build list on site states that R. Scurfield was the vessel's first owner. The vessel is first Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed in 1834, thru 1838/39, but is listed most cryptically with just the captain's name (T. Darnton), its tonnage (226) & its port of registry (Sunderland) stated. After a 3 year listing absence, the vessel was again listed from 1842/43 thru 1845/46, now of 225 tons, owned by W. Green of Hartlepool for service from Hartlepool to London. Another gap in LR coverage & then the vessel was listed, now 224 tons, from 1849/50 thru 1852/53 & not thereafter. Owned during such period by R. Oates of Sunderland, for service from Sunderland to either the Baltic or to London. Turnbull's Register of 1856 lists R. Oates of Sunderland & J. Adamson of Deptford (also Sunderland) as the then owners of the vessel, now a 198 ton snow, while Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 states Robert Oates alone. The Mercantile Navy Lists of 1867 (page 379) & 1870 (page 379) both record the vessel, now of 199 tons, as being owned by John Steel of South Shields & registered there. Signal letters HQTW. At an unknown date in Dec. 1872 (I think that is what the text means), per line 3293 here, the 199 ton brig went missing while en route from Hartlepool to London with a cargo of coal. Crew of 6 - all lost. Vessel then stated to be owned by John Harland. Anything you can add?

The vessel is Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1830 thru 1838/39, but is listed most cryptically after 1833. It is listed again from 1851/52 thru 1865/66 again with modest detail - not even a tonnage is listed. It was initially owned by W. Dixon, for service as an Exmouth, Devon, coaster. The North of England Maritime Directory of 1848/49 lists the Sunderland registered 170 ton brig as then owned by W. Wilson of Sunderland. From 1851/52, the vessel, per LR, was owned by Turner of Lynn, Norfolk, for service ex Lynn. The vessel's captain during such period was also 'Turner'. In its later years, the vessel would seem to have been registered at Lynn & then at Yarmouth. 73.6 ft. long. On Oct. 21 1862, per line 2819 here, the 158 ton brig foundered off Yarmouth, while en route from Shields to Lowestoft with a cargo of coal. Crew of 6 - none lost. Vessel then owned by James Dawbarn.
