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.
We have recently added our Contributors
page, do take a look here
and give us your feedback.
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?
For all enquiries please contact:
and we will be back in touch with you shortly.
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

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

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
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.
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.
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.
