May I suggest that you navigate the site via the index on page 001.PRIOR PAGE / NEXT PAGE

Do you want to make a comment? A site guestbook is here. Test.

The 'Blumer', 'Byers' & 'Crown' shipyard listings can respectively be found here, here & here. The build lists on this page are far from complete. Many later vessels need to be added re 'Blumer' & 'J. Crown & Sons' & the same is surely true re 'Byers'.

VESSELS BUILT BY WM. BYERS or BYERS & CO.

Now 'Byers' is not the most prominent of shipbuilders in the history of Sunderland. And build lists are yet to be created & put on site for a great many of the more well known shipbuilders. So why is it that 'Byers' rates a build list today? The answer lies in the fact that Tom Purvis, of Sunderland, has provided data about some additional ships built by 'Byers' & my problem is where to put that data, when it relates to vessels NOT yet WWW researched & listed on site. This page is my conclusion of the best way to proceed at this moment.

It would seem that the yard was, until a date in 1849, at Folly End, Monkwearmouth, & then a site at North Sands.

I include the vessels of which I have even minimal data - probably a small portion of the total. And have since added to or amended the list as more data surfaces. Miramar does not at present list vessels built by 'Byers'.

Such data as I have located about Byers & Co. / W. L. Byers & Co. Ltd (anchors) is here.
