information required

Post by alannewman » Fri Sep 05, 2014 3:35 pm

My great grandfather John Patterson was mate on the following three vessels Lamprey official no.85867 p/r Glasgow, 111 tons 90hp. Owl 68052 p/r Glasgow 361 tons 230hp Mastiff 78608 p/r Glasgow 353tons 220hp. This was between April 1886 and july 1891. They sound like puffers or the like. Does anyone have any information on these vessels. Thanks in advance. Alan

Alan, good news, they were all Clyde-built and are in our new database, find them via this search page

All appear to have been small passenger/cargo within the Burns/McIver fleets.
