Next Lloyd's listed 1853/54, owned by J. Reed of Sunderland, a Sunderland collier. On Mar. 10, 1860, per line 101 here, the 206 ton snow foundered in the North Sea while en route from Sunderland to Hamburg, Germany, with coal. None of the crew of 7 was lost, it would appear.

However Turnbull's Register of 1856 advises that the vessel, then a brig, was owned by R. (Robert) Morrison, jun., of North Shields & the vessel, then 194 tons, is Mercantile Navy List recorded in 1860. 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, Amsterdam). 6 of the 7 man crew were lost. Then owned by Robert Morrison.

It would seem that none of the 8 man crew were lost. The vessel was then stated to be owned by James Swan

The vessel would seem to have been first Lloyd's Register ('LR') recorded in 1830/31, a brig 3 years old, owned by J. Storey for service which included to Quebec, Canada. 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!

The vessel is Lloyd's Register ('LR') listed from 1834/35 thru 1841/42 & not thereafter. Owned by T. Crozier of Sunderland for service from Sunderland to London. 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 may have been recorded in Lloyd's Register ('LR') from 1834/35 thru 1838/39 with no detail other than that she was of 222 tons & registered at Sunderland. The correct vessel? Not later LR listed. In 1856, per Turnbull's Register, the 202 ton snow was owned by E. T. Wawn of South Shields. On Oct. 8, 1860, per line 365 here, the 190 ton brig was stranded near Borkum island (NW Germany) while en route from Shields to the Baltic with a cargo of coal. The entire crew of 7 lost their lives. The vessel was then owned by George Inman

So far as I can see, the vessel is Lloyd's Register listed from 1831/32 thru 1841/42 only & not thereafter. Owned for that entire period by Greenwell of Sunderland for service from Sunderland to Quebec, Canada. Was later registered at Scarborough. Christie's Shipping Register of 1858 records her owners as  being T. B. Walker, and 3 members of the Fowler family i.e. W.B., Wiiliam, & Isabella Fowler. On Oct. 16, 1860, per line 836 here, the 213 ton brig sank at Corton Sand (N. of Lowestoft, Suffolk) while en route from Hartlepool to London with a cargo of coal. Crew of 7 - none lost. The vessel was stated to be then owned by Henry Walker.
