Footnotes

  • The three-masted cargo barque Susan Pardew was built under Lloyd's 'special survey' in Hardie's Yard, Sunderland, and launched in 1863. Owned by Ellis & Co., she was registered at 378 tons and was 127 feet in length with a 27 foot beam. Trading regularly to Algoa Bay (Port Elizabeth) and Cape Town out of various British ports, her career was a relatively short one and she was wrecked in Mossel Bay, near the estuary of the Great Brak River, on 28th April 1872; fortunately no lives were lost and all aboard her got safely ashore.

    This portrait of her was probably commissioned to commemorate an incident during her maiden voyage.
