1) MILO. Leask and Clark, West Hartlepool built 1882, wrecked, unfortunatly by my Great Grandfather 1891.

2) ROWLAND. Stephens and Mawson, Built 1878 by Tyne Iron. Alts.... Became HELENE GRISAR 1899, SHAMROCK 1901
Wrecked Australia 1903.

3) MAUDE. T Appleby. Built 1883 by Gray's Hartlepool. Alts.......Became MELANIE in 1897, wrecked 1907.

4) WINTHORPE. T. Appleby. Built Gray's 1876. Wrecked 1899. No blame attatched for this one!

5)STAINCLIFFE. T Appleby. Built Pearse 1877. Alts......Became ROALD 1898. RODNY 1910 and HAV 1915. Wrecked 1921.

7) DONNACONA. Hamilton & Fort William Navigation Co. Newcastle. Built Wood Skinner 1900. Changed Owners in 1908 and 1914 but retained name. Foundered 1915.

Sounds like a great pedigree for a pilot :D
Any of the Tees-built I have will be on the website, just doing Grays now, up to 1888 at the moment, only another 76 years to go :roll:

Nothing from your list's George but I have picked up some more information, Thanks.

He took the DONNACONA as a "Newbuild" and she was engaged on World Wide Trading before she went to the Lakes and my Gran had a cutting from the local paper but I cannot find it now :(
She sailed from Newcastle on the 1st November 1900 on her Maiden Voyage to Barcelona with Coal. Then Cartagena to load Iron Ore for Maryport followed by a spell in the West African Trade until the Spring of 1901 when she went to Canada.
He may have stayed with her for a while because he did not join the DOROTHY until 1902.
