ALIQUIS


According to the Lloyds Shipping Registers of 1855-1875, the ALIQUIS was a 3-masted, square-rigged sailing ship, built under special survey by John Munn, at Quebec, Canada in 1854. Her specifications are given slightly differently in various texts:-

Lloyd's Register, 1863:- 1150 tons net 1247 tons gross

Lloyd's Register, 1875:- 1125 tons net 1125 tons gross 1032 tons under deck

Lloyd's Register, 1875 - 184' 9" length x 35' 7" beam x 22' 9" draft

Wallace's Canadian Record of Shipping lists her as 181' length x 32' 3" beam x 22' 9" draft

Marcil's The Charley Man lists her as 182' length x 32' beam x 23' draft

She was originally registered at Quebec, but re-registered at Liverpool, England on 29 August 1854, with the official number of 535 and her signal code was HDGQ.

From the entries in Lloyd's Register for 1879/80 and 1880/81, it appears that the ALIQUIS was sold in about 1879-80 and re-registered under the Dutch flag, in Amsterdam that year.

Because the ALIQUIS was built under special survey, the records of this survive among the Lloyd's Register of Shipping survey reports deposited in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, UK.
