VESSELS BUILT AT SUNDERLAND

Listed in year of first registry. - 752

This page, re vessels built in the 1890s, is close to being complete. At least so it seems to me. With major input from John Oliver. Corrections in any of the material which follows, however tiny, would be most welcome. And any additions, of course!

1890, 1891, 1892, 1893, 1894, 1895, 1896, 1897, 1898, 1899.

1890 (Data sources include this 1890/1891 edition of 'The Marine Engineer'. Also from elsewhere in the site. And from a John Oliver list. Can you provide another list?)

Strand Slipway Company

The webmaster has not researched this vessel, which was initially owned by Oxus Steamship Co. Ltd. of London. In mid Jul. 1895, Oxus was en route from Sundsvall, Gulf of Bothnia, Sweden, to London with a cargo of wood pulp. On Jul. 20, 1895 it collided with Westella, built in Sunderland in 1872, which vessel was en route, in ballast, from Stockholm, Sweden, to Hernosand (now Härnösand, Gulf of Bothnia), Sweden. At a point 8 miles SSE of Fimmgrundet. Westella sank almost immediately after the collision, her crew being rescued by Oxus & landed at Gefle (now Gavle, Sweden, Gulf of Bothnia).

The vessel, completed in Jun. 1890, was launched on Apl. 19, 1890 for Wilhelm Wilhelmsen of Tonsberg, Norway, who I read paid 684,658.65 kroner for the vessel. 1 (data in both Norwegian & English & image). The vessel attained 11 1/2 knots at her trials. In 1897/98 at least, per LR, the vessel was owned by 'Dmp. Slsk. "Tellus", a Wilhelmsen company. On Sep. 21, 1907, while en route from Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada, to Portland, Oregon, U.S.A, with a cargo of coal, the vessel was wrecked on North Spit, at the entrance to Grays Harbor, Washington, U.S.A. 302.0 ft. long, speed of 9 1/2 knots, signal letters HMJP, 210 later 238 HP engines by George Clark of Sunderland. Can anybody tell us about the circumstances of her loss? Y

Honresfeld (a steel barque)

3045/2873

William Doxford and Sons Ltd.

I seem to have few sources of data re this vessel. It is not included in Lloyd's Register ('LR') of 1890/91, LR of 1891/92 is not available, & the needed page in LR of 1893/94 is missing. The vessel is however recorded in LR of 1892/93. A 4 masted steel barque of 3045/2873 tons, 312.9 ft. long, then owned by J. Joyce & Co. of Liverpool & registered there. Signal letters MFBR. Honresfeld a community at Littleborough, Lancashire, it would seem.  The vessel's launch is referenced here. It was then the largest sailing vessel ever built on the NE coast, as per that article. On Aug. 12, 1892, the vessel left Liverpool for San Francisco with a cargo of 4570 tons of coal, under the command of J. Shaw - with a crew of 23 (or maybe 33) & a stowaway aboard. Two major events in the life of the vessel occurred throughout the voyage. Per this page, on Oct. 21, 1892, when at 57S/63W in the South Atlantic, the vessel's main deck was carried away & one crew member was lost. In a storm I presume. Later, on Dec. 20, 1892, the vessel burned at sea due to the spontaneous combustion of the cargo. At 8.20N/116.30W, in the North Pacific Ocean, about 1,200 miles off the coast of Mexico. As per this page. I have read in a 'Google' data snippet, however, that she was lost 100 miles only off Mexico's coast. No lives were lost on this occasion. The crew were saved by Stronsa, a British iron ship, en route from San Francisco to Queenstown, Ireland, but were landed at Valparaiso, Chile. The available data is interesting, however. This page states that on Dec. 28, 1895, a little over three years later, a whale ship saw the vessel still drifting at 9°N, 175°W. It would seem to be true. Certainly the sighting, by Alice Knowles, an American whaling ship, was reported in Chambers Journal of 1912, as you can read here. Rather earlier, on Feb. 18, 1893, City of Florence, a British steamship, saw the derelict still floating at 20N/110W & the coal was still then burning. It was seen again on Jun. 11, 1893 by Sharpshooter, a barque. Anything you can add?

The vessel's initial owner was Turner Edwards & Co. of Bristol. The Mercantile Navy List of 1900 lists William Henry Edwards, of Bristol, as the vessel's then owner, while the 1910 version of such list records John Fowler, of Bristol, as her then owner. Per Miramar (thanks!) in 1912, Chr. Hannevig of Horten, Norway, became the vessel's owner. And in 1915, Transatlantic Motor Ship Co. A/S of Oslo, Norway, became her owner. 245.4 ft. long, signal letters MHJW. Miramar also advise that the vessel was wrecked on Sable Island (located 300 km SE of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada) on Sep. 12, 1915 while en route from Philadelphia to Marseilles, France, with a cargo of petrol.

A. (Archibald) Currie & Co. of Melbourne, Australia, signal letters VTBW. Per Miramar, in 1912 the vessel became owned by the West Australian Government (The State Shipping Service of W.A.), renamed Kwinana. Registered at Fremantle. The vessel suffered a fire on Dec. 20, 1920, at Carnarvon, W.A., (900 miles N. of Perth), & was broken up. But see link at left re fire date, later history, etc.

Eleni Millas, later Suzette Fraissinet

The vessel was launched on Apl. 28. 1892. Per A & B (Delcampe, images), 1 (u-boat.net, May 1918 sinking), 2 (data in French) 3 (link 2 'Google translated), 4 (Compagnie Fraissinet), 5 (Compagnie de Navigation Fraissinet), 6 (Miramar, link, you now must be registered to access). The vessel was initially owned by J. Millas & Sons of Ibrail (now Brăila) Roumania (Romania), however Lloyd's Register of 1892/93 indicates that the vessel was rather registered at Cephalonia, Greece. 302.0 ft. long, signal letters HNLD. In 1897, Vagliano Bros., of Piraeus, Greece, acquired the vessel. In 1900, the vessel was sold again, to Cie Marseillaise de Nav. à Vapeur (Compagnie Fraissinet), of Marseilles, France, & renamed Suzette Fraissinet. On May 11, 1918, the vessel was sunk by German submarine UB-52, Otto Launburg in command, when 37 miles south of Cape Spartivento, Calabria, Italy, while en route from Tunis & Bizerta (both Tunisia) to Gibraltar. No lives were lost. Is there anything that you can add? Y

Hertha, later Leonid (a steel barque)

J. Blumer & Co.

The webmaster has a few editions of Lloyd's Register ('LR') available re the period of 1892/93 thru 1899/90. In those LR editions the vessel is consistently stated to be owned by Actieselakabet "Hertha", of Kolding, Denmark, but with different names following the italicised words. i.e. (O. Hirth) in 1892/93, (C. J. Haas) in 1894/95, & from 1896/97 thru 1899/1900 (S. W. Bruun). I presume that it is the names in the brackets which record the then actual owners' names. 183.3 ft. long, signal letters NGDQ. Niels Hald-Anderson advises (thanks!) that in Mar. 1908 the vessel was sold to J. N. Maslennikov, of Archangel, Russia, & renamed Leonid. Niels further advises that the vessel was wrecked off Cayenne (French Guiana, NE coast of South America) on May 10, 1910. Wrecksite.eu states that the barque was wrecked on May 12, 1910. It would appear (per a 'Google' data snippet) that the vessel hit a rock & became a total wreck. The vessel's captain, acting on behalf of the owners, sued the colony for 150,000 fr. (francs) & was awarded 72,000 fr. The underwriters sued the colony also - for 300,000 fr. - re the loss of goods. Is there anything you can add?

Omba, later Ellerbek, later Okawango  (a steamship)

James Laing

The vessel was launched in Feb. 1894 (per LR) though I understand that the exact date of launch was Jan. 22, 1894. For Straits Steamships Ltd. ('Straits') of London (Wright Bros. & Co. the managers). Roger Barclay has kindly been in touch to advise that his grandfather, Basil Charles Combe (1871/1926) served as 2nd mate on Omba's 8 month maiden voyage. An eventful voyage that saw the ship nearly lost in the Bay of Biscay, hitting a Chinese junk, running into Aldgate, an 1892 steamer, at Port Said, Egypt, grounding in the Delaware river & much more besides. The vessel loaded iron products (pig iron locos, engines etc.) at Redcar & Middlesboro (both North Yorkshire), for Kobe & Yokohama (both Japan), then on to Panay Island, Phillipines, to load sugar for Philadelphia, U.S.A., finally loading a varied cargo (grain, timber, 230 bullocks etc.) at Baltimore for Glasgow. You can read Basil's interesting journal either here or here (a 'pdf'). The Mercantile Navy List of 1900 lists Straits as Omba's then owner. In or about Feb. 1905, the vessel was sold to Heinrich Diederichsen of Kiel, Germany & renamed Ellerbek. The U.K. register for the vessel was closed in 1905. The vessel was sold again, in 1907, to 'Rhederei A.G. von 1896', of Hamburg, Germany, & renamed Okawango. A diesel engine by MAN (Maschinenfabrik Augsburg-Nürnberg) was installed, to replace the original George Clark Limited triple expansion engines. In 1919, the vessel was sold to Emil R. Retzlaff, of Stettin, Germany. In late May of 1913, while under the command of Captain Stahl & with a crew of 23 all told & a single passenger, the vessel was en route from Huelva, SW Spain, to Stettin, with a cargo of 4,400 tons of iron (possibly zinc) ore. Thick fog was encountered when the vessel was off Ushant (a small rocky island in the English Channel off the coast of Brittany, near Brest, France). At about 5 a.m. on May 28, 1913, the vessel struck the Basse-Bridy rocks off (south of) Ushant. At Ar-Vridig. Water rushed into the hull & the vessel soon was abandoned & sank. It would seem that the ship's boilers blew up & the vessel broke in two. Distress signals were sounded. Those aboard had time to take to ship's boats & were rescued by Reine de France, a local fishing boat. Do visit this extensive French page, which is complete with an image of Okawango & a contemporary French newspaper cutting with detail about the disaster. 320.0 ft. long, signal letters NHDB, later RNLB, 237 HP, speed of 10 knots. On Aug. 18, 2009, the ship's bell was recovered from the wreck site (engraved Omba, of course). It was intended that the bell, once cleaned, would be put on display at the 'Musée des Phares et Balises' at Ushant. I cannot spot whether it is now, in 2017, on display there. Is there anything you can add? Y

But see link at left for quite different data re Minilya. The Mercantile Navy List of 1910 records West Australian Steam Navigation Co.

There would seem to be very little data available about this steamer, which, specially designed for the wine trade, was launched on Jan. 8, 1898, for A. C. Le Quellec & Fils, of Bordeaux, France. Per A (Delcampe image, stated to be Stilbé, also see here), 1 (vessel's trial run), 2 (data, images, French text), 3 (link 2 'Google' translated, 4 (Miramar, link, you now must be registered to access). 330.0 ft. long, signal letters OTWG. The vessel attained a mean speed of 11 knots on 5 runs over the measured mile at its trials on Feb. 28, 1898. It was initially registered at Algiers, Algeria, it would appear. In 1916 the vessel became owned by Cie. Française des Chemins de Fer Paris-Orléans, of Nantes, France, with Soc. Maritime Aux. des Transports, the managers. Rather later, in 1929, Cie. Delmas Frères & Vieljeux of La Rochelle, France, became the vessel's owner. Much of the above is per Miramar (thanks!) who also advise that on Nov. 7, 1929 the vessel arrived at the Briton Ferry (between Swansea & Port Talbot, Wales) facilities of T. W. Ward, to be broken up. Actual break-up commenced on Nov. 14, 1929. Y
