The ship 'Roxburgh Castle'
This painting shows the ship 'Roxburgh Castle', of Green's Blackwall line, rescuing the crew of the burning 'British Merchant' of Newcastle on Tyne, about 60 miles south-east of St Helena on 17 January 1853. The 'Roxburgh Castle', 1121 tons, was built at Sunderland in 1852 for Richard Green and registered for voyages from London to Sydney. She is shown here in starboard-broadside view on the left, with a crowned classical male figurehead (possibly Neptune). Her stem also interestingly shows a point in the transition from beakhead to clipper style.
