The East Indiaman 'Northumberland' off Saint Helena
A ship's portrait of the East Indiaman 'Northumberland', shown at anchor in two positions. The stern view on the left and to the right is shown broadside-on with its boat tied astern. The ship is off the island of St Helena, which was a watering-place for homeward bound ships of the East India Company. Other shipping is anchored in the bay. The 'Northumberland' was constructed in 1780 at Well's Yard for John Mitford and replaced an earlier vessel also named 'Northumberland'. She first sailed for the company in June 1781 visiting St Helena and Bengal. Another smaller 600-ton ship was owned by the company from 1800-1816. The National Maritime Museum also holds a log book for the ship compiled during the last voyage of 1795-1797, see DUD/13. In 1816 Luny also produced a painting, 'Napoleon Bonaparte being transferred from the 'Bellerophon' to the 'Northumberland' at Torbay, August 1815', which is now at Torre Abbey.
