In 1854, Robert Thompson #2 left the partnership to form his own shipbuilding business. Thompson & Sons', & his three sons, Robert Thompson #3 (1850/1908), Joseph Lowes Thompson #2 (1853/1903) & Charles Elliott Thompson (1855/1910), joined the business. The later history, including the significant involvement of James Marr, later Sir James Marr, must come to these pages well 'later', when I understand the history better than I do at this moment. in size (11.05 x 8.75 in.) Published by the company itself. At left is a 'JLT' uniform button, which, per 'southern1954' (thanks!

It is possible that the vessel was lost but it also could have been renamed. to Edmund Graham of Newcastle, above the Vencedora image), 2 & 3 (oil painting of Edmund Graham by artist Richard Archibald Ray), 4 (damaged at Bombay in 1865), 5 (insurance claim related to the 1868 loss of Edmund Graham at Mauritius - many similar references), 6 & 7 (1868 hurricane at Mauritius). The ship would seem to have been then owned by 'Foley', though I have not spotted a reference to that name in Lloyd's Register.
Robert #1 died in 1860 at the relatively young age of 63, & that same year John retired from the business, which then came under the control of Joseph Lowes Thompson #1, the one son left in the business. At about 1893, Joseph Lowes Thompson #2 retired due to ill health, and his 3 sons continued the business under the leadership of Robert Thompson #3. In 1946, a brochure entitled 'One Hundred Years of Joseph L. There is also something hanging from the end of the spear.' The button is not very big (about 25 mm diameter) & the detail is small!

29, 1884, an Inquiry was held, (#2099 see left), into damage that the vessel sustained in a hurricane, when en route from 'Dantzig' (Gdańsk, Poland), to Boston, U. The date of the damage was not indicated but probably was in very early 1884.
A life, or lives, were lost - the Master was held to be free from blame. I am sure that the Inquiry would have recorded the 1888 ownership correctly, a puzzle because link 2 indicates that from 1886/1891 the vessel was owned by Rowland & Marwood's Steamship Co. & that the vessel was then sold to Osborn & Wallis. Brischitti' (who may be the agents only), likely of Naples, Italy, & renamed Perseveranza.

Also in 1880, Naworth Castle towed Bristol, a cargo ship, to Fire Island, a barrier island S. Naworth Castle, en route from New Orleans to Revel with a cargo of cotton, towed her to safety under adverse weather conditions. 74.1 metres long, perpendicular to perpendicular, 243 ft., launched by Miss Barry. 19, 1921, the vessel 'sprang a leak' & sank 15 miles S.

She had encountered a major storm, a hurricane perhaps, en route, consumed her bunker coal & had to replenish her supply at Bermuda. 30, 1897, Glenochil stranded on the new breakwater off Delaware Breakwater, Lewes, Delaware, suffered major damage to her forward engine rooms & bottom, & was initially thought to be a total loss. In 1908, the vessel was sold to Alaska Steamship Company, of Port Angeles, Washington, again with no change of name.
