Brocklebank Line

The Brocklebank Line line goes way back to 1770 when Daniel Brocklebank of New York established a ship building business there. After the American war of independence he returned to England (his country of origin ) and began building and operating ships there known as the Brocklebank Line.

In 1801 he died and his sons Thomas and John took over taking the business further afield. In 1906 the company made a huge investment into the Shire Line shipping Co. Later the company also became associated with The Royal mail Steam Packet Co. and even later with Cunard Lines. The last sailings of this old company was about 1983.

The cup below dates to around 1950.
