Abstract

Ship Name:Bann; Sailed: 1875-?; Type: Iron 3-masted; Built by: Sunderland, England by T. R. Oswald; Dimensions: 250.1' x 38.9" x 24.2'; Tonnage: 1667 tons.

Description

Bann engaged in the Indian labor trade under the house flag of James Nourse often going out to Calcutta with iron rails or salt. Sold German in 1904, the ship was renamed Hildegard and ended up as a coal hulk in Trinidad. The photograph shows Bann with unshipped jibboom--and royals sent down suggesting that Bann could be tender when light—not an unusual condition in iron ships.
