Unknown to webmaster

Initially owned by Erskine & Co. of Dundee for service from London to Calcutta, India. On Mar. 3, 1848, the vessel was in collision, at night, with Rosebud (not Roseland), a 90 ton schooner, off the coast of Spain. Note Rosebud suffered damage as a result. At Admiralty Court, Juliet Erskine was found to be at fault. In 1848/49, J. Hunter of Newcastle became the vessel's owner for service from Newcastle, Sunderland & London to Calcutta, Sydney, Cape of Good Hope & into the Mediterranean. I cannot track any arrivals in Australia. In 1855/56, Foley & Co. of Cork, Ireland, soon Daley (or Daly) & Foley, became her owners for service ex Liverpool, Cork & the Clyde to the Mediterranean & to the West Indies. On Jul. 6, 1860, per line 229 here, the 277 ton barque was stranded at the Gaspar Straits (Indonesia) while en route from Singapore to Mauritius with a cargo of planks. It would seem that none of the 11 man crew were lost. The vessel was then stated to be owned by Richard Foley

Temperley of London for service to Montreal, Canada, ex Sunderland & then London. In 1845/46 the owner became Henderson of Glasgow for service Clyde to Valparaiso, Peru, & later Clyde to Singapore. In 1853/54 the owner became Skinner & Co., also of Glasgow, for a London to Australia service. From 1856/57 Metcalfe, i.e. T. (Thomas) Metcalfe of Shields became the owner for service Shields to the Mediterranean & to the West Indies. Lloyd's Register of 1864/65 states that the vessel was lost, however line 81 here, advises that of Feb. 19, 1860 the 307 ton barque was stranded 20 miles N. of Ayr while en route from Troon to Syra, Greece, with a cargo of coal. Crew of 11 - none lost. Vessel then stated to be owned by William Baxter. Did the vessel survive the stranding to explain the later listings in Lloyd's Register? Probably a Lloyd's listing error.

The vessel was owned, for its entire lifetime, by Fenwick of London. Initially for service from Sunderland to Quebec. Canada, & to the Mediterranean. Later, mainly from London & Liverpool, but also from Gloucester, to Odessa, to Constantinople & to the Mediterranean. On May 21, 1860, per line 183 here, the 277 ton brig was abandoned off Newfoundland while en route from Cadiz, Spain, to Newfoundland. It would seem that none of the 10 man crew were lost.

The vessel would seem to have been owned by Duncan Dunbar for its entire, if brief, lifetime, though this link states that the vessel was sold to a Mr. Maxwell in 1855 - if so the Maxwell ownership seems not to have been recorded in Lloyd's Registers. For service to Trans. (Transvaal, South Africa maybe), to India & to Australia. Four voyages to Australia, in 1847, 1849, 1850 & 1854, each with cargo & about 300 immigrants. George Richardson her long time captain. On Apl. 20, 1860, per line 149 here, the 717 ton barque sprang a leak & was abandoned, at 29N/42W in mid North Atlantic, while en route from Sydney, Australia, via Manila, to London with a cargo of tobacco, etc. Crew of 30. Line 149 does not indicate any loss of life, however this site states that 'one boat with survivors was picked up but the others were not seen again.' See the first link at left for greater detail - note, however, that the article does not state the Apl. 20, 1860 exact date of abandonment as above. The vessel then owned by Duncan Dunbar.

On May 28, 1860, per line 195 here, the 489 ton barque foundered 'in the Western Ocean', while en route from Demerera, now Guyana, to London, with a cargo of sugar, etc. It would seem that none of the 17 man crew were lost.

In 1854/55 the owner became J. Hercus, also of Glasgow for service Clyde to California. In 1857/58, the owner became Flintoft of Whitby. On Feb. 23, 1860, per line 91 here, the 402 ton barque is stated to have been abandoned at sea while en route from Gravesend to Genoa, Italy, with a cargo of coal. No indication as to exactly where it was abandoned. None of the crew of 14 was lost, it would appear. The owner was recorded as being Thomas Harrison.

What were the official build numbers for 1846? Do please advise me if you know. 'Where Ships Are Born' states 131 vessels & 42,000 tons.

1847 (Just a start. But a good start thanks to the 'North of England Maritime Directory, Shipping Register, and Commercial Advertiser', of 1848/49, published, it would seem, in Aug. 1848, (a 'Google' book). It provides a list of the vessels built at Sunderland in 1847. Which is the principal (but not the sole) source for the data that follows. To save you searching for that list, (not easy to find), the pages are here:- 1, 2, 3. Do please advise me if you have additional data. Corrections will surely be required in the data that follows.)

Note that the above directory also contains a list of ships registered at Sunderland, Newcastle, & other places. Such lists are the prime source for the 'built for' data, (not yet complete), on the assumption that there was not a sale so soon after a vessel was built. There are, however, anomalies in the data contained in the different lists.

Lister & Co. of Sunderland for service Sunderland to Quebec, Canada. From 1850/51 thru 1857/58 Lonie & Co., also of Sunderland, became the vessel's owners for service from Sunderland to Hmbro (Hamburg) & later to the Mediterranean. On Feb. 16, 1860, per line 77 here, the 345 ton brig foundered in the Bay of Biscay while en route from Sunderland to Bordeaux, France, with a cargo of coal. None of the crew of 12 was lost, it would appear. The owner was recorded as being Martin Lonce. A puzzle perhaps is that the vessel seems not to have been Lloyd's Register recorded after 1857/58 - strange for a vessel said to have foundered in 1860.

Sir Thomas Gresham - early recorded in Lloyd's Register as Sir Thos. Gresham (a ship)

513/593

T. Gales

Sir Thomas Gresham would seem to have been owned for its entire brief lifetime by Lidgett & Co. of London for service from Sunderland to Bombay. It would seem to have later serviced Mauritius, Madras  & Australia. So far as I can see the vessel made a single voyage to Australia, to Adelaide from Plymouth arriving in 101 days on Mar. 9, 1858 with 237 immigrants. She later left in ballast for Madras. On Apl. 19, 1860, per line 147 here, the 593 ton ship sank at 31N/93E (coordinates clearly incorrect) while en route from Madras to Gobalpore (now Gobalpur, NE India). None of the crew of 18 was lost, it would appear. The owner was recorded as being John Lidgett.

Thru 1859/60, the vessel was owned by Bamfield of Plymouth, for service from Liverpool or London to (I think it reads) Cartagena, Columbia, St. Maarten & Cape of Good Hope. In 1860/61, the owner became Pyman & Co. of West Hartlepool for service Whitby to the Baltic. On May 28, 1860, per line 191 here, the 301 ton brig was stranded near Oesel (Saaremaa), Estonia, while en route from Hartlepool to Cronstadt (St. Petersburg, Russia) with a cargo of coal. It would seem that none of the 9 man crew were lost. The vessel was then owned by George Pyman

Gary Hicks advises (thanks!) that the vessel was built by
?Arnold Leithead as per a registration of the vessel at London on Mar. 27, 1849. To the best of the webmaster's knowledge there was no Arnold Leithead but there surely were shipbuilders named Arrow & Andrew Leithead as set out here. A list of ships built by the Leithead family is on site. They built ships for major ship owners & at least two other ships for Duncan Dunbar.

Duncan Dunbar of London thru 1862/63. In 1863/64 the vessel's ownership changed from Duncan Dunbar to James Moore of Plymouth (maybe of East Stonehouse, Devon). In 1876/77 the owner became Moore & Rawle, also of Plymouth. On Nov. 22, 1880, the vessel capsized & was abandoned about 40 miles SSE of Bird Rocks, Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada, while en route from Quebec City to Cardiff with a cargo of timber. 10 lives were lost including that of the captain
