Anyone know anything about this steamship, Elena Margarita, registered at Piraeus I think. Seen here at Ayr about a century ago.

1916/1917 LLoyds Register Found one 'Elena Margaita' Gives her owners as W.F.Henry van der Zee
however
1918/1919 LLoyds Register
shows 2538 grt/1556nrt. built 1890 Palmers & Co Ltd., Newcastle
Owners A.Capparis & G.Gregos. Piaeus. Greece.
300.0 x 40.2 x 19.4 ft. T3Cyl. (20,35 & 58 - 42)in. 160lbs. 239nhp.

Previous names - Helena Margareta - Benan - Georgis P - Bouboulis - Amalia Vlassopulo.
Below her name (Metaxas) Dont know the meaning of this.
Could be the one?

Wonder if the arrival/departures for the port of Ayr are hidden in some archive in Ayrshire. Ayr not under Clyde Trust
control so nothing in the Mitchell. There used to be a list of Ardrossan movements on a site about the Three Towns,
Ardrossan/Saltcoats/Stevenston. Anyone any ideas?. Colin

I have in the past asked the question at the Carnegie Library Reference Section, but to no avail and the only way was to peruse all the old local papers but that became too onerous a task so I gave up before long. Very hit & miss method, albeit some gems can appear from time to time. The port register of shipping might be a useful source, I will make enquiries of a contact who might know the whereabouts of these.
