William Doxford Page 1, page bottom (turret & whaleback vessels). It would seem that William Doxford and Sons, Limited was established by one William Doxford (1812-1882) in 1840, building wooden boats at Coxgreen (there are a great many references to 'Cox Green' but while Cox Green was correct (a train ticket is here), I understand 'Coxgreen' is correct today), some way upstream from the centre of Sunderland.
Indeed, the increasing number of listings re Doxford built vessels has already required a 2nd, 3rd & 4th pages - pages 053, 054 & 055.
Other family members, active in the early 1920s, are shown also. In 1956 the two parts of the business were placed in separate entities - re the shipbuilding side into 'William Doxford & Sons (Shipbuilders) Ltd.' (a booklet published by that company, likely in 1962, is here) & the engineering side into 'William Doxford & Sons (Engineers) Ltd.'. Penzance steamer India, of 364 tons, ran into the starboard side of Kate Thomas at 4 a.m. The vessel sank a few minutes (10 or 15) after the collision. 1900 while en route in ballast from Mauritius to Colombo, Ceylon, (now Sri Lanka). coast of Great Nicobar Island in bad weather en route Penang/Calcutta (or Madras) with cargo & passengers. 88.4 metres long, perpendicular to perpendicular, 290 ft., two masts, schooner rigged, speed of 10 or maybe 11 knots.

Coull in command, with a crew of 30 all told (have also read 21, 29 & 37), left Port Kembla, NSW, bound for Albany, Western Australia, with a cargo of coal. The available data re this vessel is, to me at least, confused. While 2 used to state that the Doxford vessel was unapproved & therefore built under licence. 94.8 metres long, perpendicular to perpendicular, 311.0 ft., speed of about 11 knots, with engines aft, signal letters NDWP. She was refloated on the 29th, sank again on the 30th & was abandoned on Oct. It would seem likely that the vessel was deliberately scuttled.

I have read that the company became 'Doxford & Sunderland Shipbuilding & Engineering Company Limited' in 1961, following a merger with 'Sunderland Shipbuilding, Dry Docks & Engineering Co. By the 1887/88 edition of Lloyd's, the vessel was owned by 'W. It would seem that William Mc Taggart, of Mc Taggart Tidman & Co., of London, was one of the partners that created 'Eastern & Australian Mail Steamship Co.' The vessel was engaged on the Australia to Singapore run until 1902 & then on the Australia to Hong Kong & Japan route. India, which suffered major bow damage, did stop at the accident scene. The vessel was given up for lost - it took 48 days to reach Colombo after the shaft sheered. Used to transport Indian indentured labourers to the colonies (5 such trips to Fiji, 1901 thru 1907, listed at 2 with passenger load of each trip indicated). The webmaster has just 2 editions of Lloyd's Registers available to him, ex Google Books, see left. And in early 1899, it would seem, was chartered to Huddart, Parker & Co.

Clemens in command, with a cargo of kerosene & a crew of 25. While I provide the best data I can locate, this listing may well contain unintended errors.

K., to Louisburg, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, her propeller was damaged by contact with ice floes off St. 'The vessel's insurance did 'not apparently err on the side of inadequacy'.
Similar flow procedures were followed with the other trades - joiners, shipwrights, riggers. In 1919, in a cyclone, the vessel, with 600 tons of coal aboard, was driven higher onto the beach near the Darwin wharf. The webmaster has a number of editions of Lloyd's Registers, ex Google Books, available to him, thru 1889/90, see left. long, speed of 14 knots, 2 masts & bowsprit, signal letters JMSK. Limited', of London, which company provided mail & passenger service from Sydney, Brisbane & other Australian ports to Japan, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Manila & Thursday Island. The owner would seem to have soon become 'Eastern & Australian Steamship Co. The vessel was initially thought to be a total loss, but that proved not to be so since the vessel safely made it to Sydney. In 1904, the vessel was sold to 'Burns Philp & Company Limited', of Sydney. 128.6 metres long, perpendicular to perpendicular, 422.0 ft. 80.8 metres long, perpendicular to perpendicular, about 85 metres long overall. Ltd.' ('Cay'), of South Shields, which company, originally a sailing ship owner, became a steamship owner in 1880 by buying second hand tonnage. Three ship's boats would seem to have been launched. The second, launched with very great difficulty, either soon after impact or 4 hours later, had 16 aboard including 4 of the young horse handlers. Two crewmen survived the turbulent seas & were able to scramble back aboard the ship while 2 others were taken aboard the 3rd boat.
Now tracking these events at Sunderland 50 years ago is not a particularly easy thing for the webmaster to accomplish. 1959, talks about 'William Doxford & Sons (Shipbuilders) Ltd.' and its total reorganisation of the facilities at Pallion, then recently completed.

Lugar, the vessel laid cable to connect the Island of Formosa i.e. Built for 'Det Sndenfjelds-Norske Dampskibsselskab', of Kristiania (Oslo), Norway. The vessel would appear to have been seen a few miles N. And is said to have been last sighted by Melbourne on Mar.

Business must have been good, because, & I quote, 'several times the Doxfords extended their premises'. ) that in 1891 the business became a limited liability company with a capital of 200,000, all owned by the Doxford family. 1, 1891 'William Doxford and Sons Ltd.' was registered as a public company to acquire the family limited company & its business of iron ship builders and marine engineers. In 1893, Doxford launched its first 'Turret Ship', designed with the objective of saving on canal & harbour dues & financed 50/50 with ship owner William Peterson. The upper deck area was reduced to a minimum, the net tonnage was reduced & the cargo area was increased. The vessel was broken up in Spain in the 4th quarter of 1933. An attempt was made to free her in the summer of 1907 but it failed. 13, 1909, the vessel was towed to Quebec & repaired. Tom Reid of Sarnia and Port Huron eventually salvaged her and sent her back to salt water service as KWASIND'.
I read that Lloyd's was initially not happy that the vessel was seaworthy, but the design proved in practice to be both seaworthy & a considerable commercial success, so long as the fee computation rules remained. Further most difficult efforts followed & eventually, Reid Wrecking Company completed the task. 31, 1909, Turret Bell was towed to Charlottetown by wrecking tug James Reid. Reid Wrecking Co., of Sarnia, Ontario, took over ownership in 1907 (not 1909?
It moved its facilities downstream on the River Wear to Pallion in 1857. ) states that the vessel was then owned by 'Mac Kenzie & Mann' of Montreal (I had read that in 1907, the vessel was owned by Canadian Lake & Ocean Navigation Co.
Pallion, is, I understand, upstream of the present rail & road bridges in central Sunderland, the shipbuilding yard being located (or I should say located since all shipbuilding ended there in 1988) on the south side of the river close to (west of) the Queen Alexandra Bridge - about 3 miles from the mouth of the river. The vessel was too long to be able to transit the St. Ltd., a subsidiary of 'Mackenzie & Mann', & chartered to 'Inverness Railway and Coal Company' of Port Hastings).
