Welcome to the Clipper Ship Teviotdale Website.

The Teviotdale Clipper Ship 60444 website is currently under construction and due for launch October 2015 but please do read on. (Last updated September 2015.)

If you have any information about the Teviotdale 1876 Clipper Ship that you think we may be interested to hear about or include on our web-site, in please contact us. Soon we will be asking for geneology links to members of the crew of the last voyage of Teviotdale in 1876, when the ship was lost due to a fire on board.

Latest news....(20-Sept-15)

We have recently added our Contributors page, do take a look here and give us your feedback.

Help!  We are looking for your help in locating the Scottish artisit by the name of A. R. Blair (probably from Tullibody or Alloa in Clackmannanshire, Scotland) who created a series of pictures to show the adventures of the Teviotdale in 1876. The pictures would show life on board a three-masted clipper ship and George Jenkins had lantern sldies created from them and used the slides to give an illustrated talk to locals in the Tullidbody Public Hall on 18th December 1909.

We are also tryng to track down the wereabouts of an orignal painting of the Teviotdale in 1872 by the Scottish artist Samuel H Fyfe. The painting will show a 3-masted sailing ship, much like the clipper ship Cutty Sark, also built in 1869.  Please contact us if you can shed any like on this work of art.  The painting may be in Scotland or perhaps even further afield, who knows?

Dedication
The inspriations for the creation of Teviotdale web-site are two-fold. The first and over-riding reason was born out of the need to give credit to all the sailors and able-seamen who have served on board ships world-wide, for whatever purpose or reason over the last 150 years. Visit the Shipwrecked Mariners' Society supporting the needs of seafarers since 1839. Clcik here to go to website of The Shipwrecked Mariners' Society.

Our second and equally important reason for the creation of this Teviotdale web-site is to raise much-needed funds for the charity Muscular Dystrophy Campaign. To find out more about the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, click here to visit their website, the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign.
The need to support the work of the Muscular Dystrophy organisation is of a very personal nature, for the Jekins family with their crew-member connection to the Teviotdale. The current Jenkins family, direct decendants of Teviotdale crew-member AB George Jenkins, many of whom have suffered or do suffer from the hereditary disease of Muscular Dystrophy. Visit the In Memorium Dedication page to read the dedication to the Jenkins family.

Maritime experiences
For many of us our ocean experince is that of a ferry-crossing, a yachting holiday or time spent on a cruise-ship. Rarely do we experince really bad weather, let alone perrilous or life-threatening conditions as can be found in the great oceans.  It is times like these that the sailor or merchant seaman earns his 'salt' or worth.  We rely on professional sailors, skippers and masters with their experince, knowledge and skills to navigate vessels, passengers and cargo safe passage through stormy waters and into port.

Fundraising
All profits from the sale of Teviotdale products will go to our approved and recognised charities. Visit our charity fundraising page for more information on the charities we support and for links to each of the charities own web-site.

Thanks
A really big 'thank-you' to everyone who has made donations to our charities, they really do need your continued support and all donations however large or small are gratefuly recevied and go towards making the lives of those affected by disease or mis-fortune that little bit more tolerable.

Thank you.
