Footnotes

  • The Eclipse, believed - at 112 tons burden - to be Jersey's largest cutter, was built in F.C. Clarke's Black Rock yard at West Park, St. Helier, and launched on 2nd April 1852. First owned by Thomas de Faye, a prominent Jersey shipowner whose business interests flourished between 1846 and 1885, she traded out of St. Helier to the French coast although her lifespan and eventual fate are so far unrecorded.
