We are keen to make contact with anyone who has a family connection with the Teviotdale of 1876.  We would love to find out more about her Captain Robert Jones, First Mate, Second Mate or any of her crew on board the ship during its final, or any of its previous voyages.  She had several captains over her short life, two we know of; Captain Nicol (officially logged at Wellington NZ, 26th August 1875) and Captain Robert Jones who set sail on 26th July 1876 from Camperdown Dock, Dundee.  This was to be the fateful and final voyage of the Teviotdale during which the ship was abandoned due to uncontrollable fire on board.

Call for help....(29th March 2020)

We are looking for your help in locating the decendants of a Scottish artist by the name of A. R. Blair.  He may have been a professional artist or indeed an amateur working is his spare time. Blair was probably from Tullibody or Alloa in Clackmannanshire, Scotland.  Blair was commissioned by George Jenkins to create a series of pictures to show the final voyage and adventures of the Teviotdale in 1876.  The pictures depicted various aspects of life on board the three-masted clipper ship during its passage around the world.  We know George Jenkins visited London to have 'lantern slides' created from them and George subsequently used these slides to give an illustrated talk to a packed audience in the Tullibody Public Hall on 18th December 1909.

Latest news....(29th March 2020)

As a result of the news of the publication of our book, w have been contacted by a long-lost distant family member to say that they are the proud owners of TWO of the original paintings for the Teviotdale by Mr A. R. Blair - what a find! We will bring you images of the paintings very soon.

We are also trying to track down the whereabouts of an original painting of the Teviotdale in 1872 by the Scottish artist Samuel H Fyfe.  There is evidence to show such a painting exists and it appears to be in the hands of a private collector.  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?


For all enquiries please contact:
and we will be back in touch with you shortly.
