Home | My Story | Library | Around the Globe | Ships | Family Album | People Index | Surnames Index

 

I am looking for any additional information and/or pictures of the following ships and their Mate or Master, Mathew Power (my ggg grandfather) and Thomas Power (my great great grandfather) for the periods indicated below.

Much of the information on this page followed the finding of a diary written by Norah K. Power, youngest daughter of Thomas Power, and sister of Thomas Mathew Power. The diary (in pdf format, 277 KB) has numerous citations to English families residing in Valparaiso, Chile. Also attempting to locate the "Panama", a sailing ship that arrived in Valparaiso in November 11, 1866 from an undisclosed port of departure "up north" with Thomas Mathew Power on board. The Panama departed Valparaiso for an undisclose port a few days later. Ships in & around Valparaiso between 1840-1918

1) MATHEW POWER WAS THE MATE or MASTER OF THE FOLLOWING SHIPS.


Any information on these ships would be greatly appreciated.

The Algeria made its maiden voyage from Liverpool to New York, via Queenstown, on 27 September 1870. This service was continued until 22 October 1881. In 1882 it was sold to the Red Star Line who had compound engines fitted by J.Jack & Co., Liverpool, immediately. It began to serve the Antwerp to New York route for the Red Star Line in May 1882. In 1888 a new spar deck was added and the tonnage increased to 3,760. The Antwerp-New York service ended in 1894 and it preceded to sail to Philadelphia instead. Soon, in 1895, it began to serve the American Line on various routes - Philadelphia-Liverpool and Antwerp -New York/Philadelphia. In 1902 the passenger accommodation was converted so that there was now only accommodation for 3rd class passengers. After this had been done it made a further three round trips on the Antwerp to new York route, and a further fifteen round trips on the Philadelphia to Antwerp route before being scrapped in Italy at the end of 1903.
