  2. Reading all this with great interest as I have been researching vessels built by my family Thomas Royden & Sons, Liverpool – just finishing a book on the yard which includes ‘mini histories’ of all 262 ships built there in the 19thc. This discovery by Michael & co. has been added to the Peconic story, so many thanks!

  3. Currently researching great grandfather William P Brownless who was 1st Officer in the Peconic at time of rescue 1892 of shipwrecked mariners off Massachusets coast. Have newspaper cuttings & medal(s) commemorating this. Alison B
