T L Devlin's Trawlers

1890s

Commodore and Challenger

"In July 1890, Thomas L Devlins first new trawler was registered in his name.  It was a new trawler,  COMMODORE (Fishing No GN31), built by Hawthorn at Junction Bridge, Leith.

He kept this for only a few months before selling it to S Brocklebank, London in December 1890.  

Apparently, at that time second-hand trawlers could command higher prices than new ones, because they were available for use immediately.

So TLD presumably benefited from this deal.  He went on to purchase several more new trawlers that he kept for only short periods.

However, he kept CHALLENGER for five years before selling it in 1897, and he kept a second trawler named COMMODORE (No GN33) from 1891 until 1924, before selling it to a relative of John D Stevenson.

By the mid 1890's T L Devlin was purchasing second hand tonnage, and also ordering new trawlers from Hawthorn's"

Acknowledgement

Thank you to John Stevenson for providing the details above.  John says:

"The above is some of the info held in CE106/11/1  "Granton Ship Registrations" , held at the National Archives of Scotland in Edinburgh

I believe that all the owner names above (T L Devlin, T L Devlin jr and Thos Devlin jr) refer to the same person, Thomas Leishman Devlin (d.1919)."
