Hello Derek & Reg,
I think there was a house in Cardiganshire spelt like that, probably
Penbryn/Llangranog, but I can't find it at the moment. I always
assumed it was a corruption of Montego Bay, Jamaica, but as spelling
varied so much, it could be some other placename. The JENKINS family
of Dyffryn Bern certainly had strong links to Montego Bay.
Does anyone recognize it in Cardiganshire?

You will need a visit to TNA, Kew to find its Certificate of British Registry and
destinations by looking up the service record of its masters. The CBR would have
information about its construction, shareholders, changes of masters and its fate.

Last year members of this list gave me some great help with the Cumbrian built vessel
BOWES and I would be grateful for their help once again.
The schooner SCHILLIZZI was built at Harrington, West Cumberland by the yard belonging to
the Williamson family in 1849. She bore the Official Ship's Number 24,313 and traded
initially out of Harrington, then Liverpool, and somewhere about 1860 she changed
ownership and was re-registered in Cardigan and was based there for possibly 20 years or
so. She was probably owned by Evan Jones of Newquay in 1874.
I would appreciate learning anything that members may be able to relate about the
vessel's specification, owners, captains, voyages and cargo - and her eventual
Thanks for reading this query and looking forward to hearing from anyone that can relate
in any way to this little ship.
