Footnotes

  • Provenance
    With The Parker Gallery, London.

    Although the second part of this vessel's name is no longer legible on the bow, she appears to be the Ellen Lloyd. Built at Nevin (now called Nefyn), North Wales in 1877 by G. Owen and launched as the Ebeneezer Parry, she was registered at 195 tons gross (182 net) and measured 100 feet in length with a 25 foot beam. Operating out of her home port of Caernarvon, usually carrying salted fish, she was sold by her original owner H. Parry to W. Anthony in 1890 who renamed her Ellen Lloyd. Trading into the new century, she disappears from record in 1908.
