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.

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
