I need help reading the type of ship
« on: Thursday 20 May 21 20:32 BST (UK) »
My great-grandfather was in the Merchant Service and have just discovered him on the 1861 census.

I can read that the ship was called Lord Provost of Aberdeen, and under that name it says Schooner, but I can't read the next word.

Can anyone help?

LORD PROVOST, official number19424. Was Built in Perth 1855 and registered at that port. She was a small coasting vessel of 83 tons. Registry was transfered to Aberdeen in 1861.

 Her 1861 Crew Agreements and Logbooks can be obtained from NMM Greenwich, although for the moment the service is suspended.

That's very interesting, and well worth further research.
I wonder if they hold records for deaths that occurred on board the vessels.
My great-grandfather died onboard the SS General Gordon, while it was berthed at berth number 33, Springfield Quay, Glasgow on 04 December 1890.
