Do you want to make a comment? A site guestbook is here. Copyright? Test. Changes the result of the closure of 'Photoship' - up to No. 16 on page 097 (1915 + 16 = 1931). Changed links re Miramar, to page 046 & also page 088.

To search for specific text on this page, just press 'CTRL + F' & then enter your search term.

In advancing the Sunderland Site, I have on occasion come across interesting data in rather obscure places about ships not built in Sunderland - data that might help people searching for information & histories of their particular ships of interest. Just 21 vessel names are referenced so far. I will add in additional vessel names into the future, so the page may become meaningful in due course.

LISTS OF BRITISH SHIPS THAT WERE WRECKED

1836 & 1837 SHIPWRECKS

A list of 1836 & 1837 shipwrecks of British ships can be found in this downloadable 'Google' book, likely published in London in late 1837. (The Nautical Magazine & Naval Chronicle for 1837). At the following pages in the downloaded volume - 78, 148, 237, 293 & 836. I hope to soon make those pages directly available via these pages.

1837 Shipwrecks:-  Pages

SHIPWRECKS OF MANY YEARS FROM 1851 THRU 1872 (but not all of those years)

Often, when WWW researching the histories of vessels built at Sunderland, one happens to come across good data in unexpected places. Such is a 'Google' book, published in London in 1874, being the final report of the 'Royal Commission on Unseaworthy Ships'. It contains extensive lists of British ships that were lost over a great many years. The book, a large 'pdf' file, can be both accessed and downloaded here or here. Those two links seem to be to different scans of the same (Vol II) physical book, but the scans are not identical. So a page can be complete in one version but missing data in the other. The detailed data seems to have been published also (in Vol I), which can be accessed but NOT downloaded, except page by page, here.

The webmaster's interest is in such portion of the book's content that relates to ships built in Sunderland - a significant but modest portion of all of the ships that are listed (
141 of 1023 or 13.78% of the total in 1860, 120 of 984 or 12.19% of the total in 1862, 116 of 1146 or 10.13% of the total in 1870, 119 of 1078 or 11.04% of the total in 1871, 133 of 1071 or 12.42% of the total in 1872). As I amend this page, I am thru the data pages re the wrecks of 1860, 1862, 1870, 1871 & 1872. Will now make a start on the 1861 data.

The webmaster's summary pages, as so far referenced, can be seen here:-

1851 - Pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
1852 - Pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
1860 - Pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14
1861 - Pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14
1862 - Pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13
1867 - Pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (pages also contain a few ships lost in 1865 & 1866)
1869 - Pages
1870 - Pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15
1871 - Pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14
1872 - Pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14

A list of 1850 & 1851 shipwrecks is available also in a companion volume to the above. The final report of the 'Royal Commission on Unseaworthy Ships' Vol. II the Minutes of Evidence & the Appendix, also published in 1874. The book, a large 'pdf' file, can be both accessed and downloaded here. 1850 data commences at true page 536 in the volume. And 1851 at page 556. There is data there for other years, I see.

1850 - Pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
1851 - Data that looks to be identical to that listed 16 lines above.

1852 SHIPWRECKS

A list of 1852 shipwrecks lost on British shores or seas can be found in this downloadable 'Google' book, published in London in 1853 (Accounts & Papers, Vol. 61, 1852/53). Commencing at page 16 in the downloaded volume. Thru to page 229.

1852 Shipwrecks:-  Pages

1854 SHIPWRECKS

A list of 1854 shipwrecks lost on British shores or seas can be found in this downloadable 'Google' book, likely published in London in late 1855. (Accounts & Papers, Vol. 34, 1854/55) At the back of the book, commencing at page 372 in the downloaded volume. The book contains extensive data related to the Crimean War, commencing at page 249 in the downloaded volume, & also the extensive list at page 372 (thanks go to Alan Sharp of New Zealand for spotting it there).

Crimea related:- Pages 2/3, 4/5, 6/7, 8/9, 10/11, 12/13, 16/17 next re Negotiator 1848, 2/3, 4/5,

1854 Shipwrecks:-  Pages 088/089,

JAN. 1, 1873 THRU MAY 16, 1880

Another interesting 'Google' book, published in London in 1880, lists details about shipwrecks of steamers and sailing ships during the period from Jan. 1, 1873 to May 16, 1880. The book, a large 'pdf' file, (Accounts and Papers, Shipping, Vol. LXVI (66) published in 1880) can be both accessed & downloaded here. It contains lists of steamers that foundered or were missing at pages 208 thru 227 & 228 thru 239 all in the downloaded book. And similar data re sailing ships at pages 240 thru 389 & 390 thru 461. In time, I hope to make easily available all of the pages from such volume that refer to Sunderland built ships. Just 24 such pages are now on site.

Steamship:-  030/031, 032/033,
Sail:- 038/039, 040/041, 042/043, 044/045, 056/057, 058/059, 060/061, 062/063, 064/065, 066/067, 068/069, 070/071, 072/073, 074/075, 076/077, 078/079, 080/081, 084/085, 088/089, 090/091, 092/093, 094/095, 096/097, 100/101, 104/105, 106/107, 108/109, xx 124/125, 126/127, 128/129, 136/137, 144/145, 150/151, 188/189, 226/227,
Both sail & steamship:-  099.

1890 THRU JUNE 1893

Yet another 'Google' book, 'Parliamentary Papers Vol. 76', published in London in 1894, lists details about shipwrecks of steamers and sailing ships during the period from 1890 to June 1893. The book, a large 'pdf' file, can be both accessed & downloaded here. It contains lists of vessels that were lost for various reasons at pages 647 thru 720 in the downloaded book. In time, I hope to make easily available the pages from such volume that refer to Sunderland built ships. Just two such pages are now on site.

True pages 142, 150, 8/9, 18/19.

A LIST OF DANISH SHIPWRECKS

Thanks to Ebbe Hove of Denmark, I have become aware that a truly giant list of wrecks in Denmark is available here. The list seems to cover all time periods. A most useful list indeed.

AVAILABILITY OF LLOYD'S REGISTERS ON LINE

There would seem to be two web sites (1 & 2) via which one can download various editions of Lloyd's Register. Both sites list as unavailable a bunch of editions that I have been able to download over the years, most often from Google books. Another fine source for such data is here (Hathi Trust) however they indicate that many editions, 1877/78 as an example, cannot be made available for copyright reasons. What could such reasons possibly be for such a very old book? When editions from 1930 thru 1945 are all available via Plimsoll Ship Data in the U.K.

As I find them again, I will list where you can access editions said at the first two links to be not available. Hopefully the list below will soon cover many (but not all) years between 1876/77 & 1892/93. They are not easy to find!

1875/76 is available here but not for you and I, alas. But you can read it page by page.
1876/77
1878/79
1879/80
1880/81
1881/82 is available here.
1882/83 is available here.
1885/86
1886/87
1887/88
1888/89
1890/91 (steam only) is available here.
1891/92
1892/93 is available here.
