For Pat Campbell :
The exhibit at the Peterhead Museum centres mostly around
John Collie, who was master of both "Rosebuds". The second "Rosebud" was
built because the original one was deemed to have been too small (for
whatever activities they wanted to carry out). I think the second one was
around 370 tons.
Anyhow, the Museum has photographs of, I think, both vessels
and information about what trade she participated in. (I noticed from the
U.S. Lloyds register site that the original "Rosebud" ).
I would be very interested in any details about William
Murrison because I don't seem to have him on my "Shipmaster List". I have a
James Murrison and Alexander Murrison, and a William Murison (but he died in
Hamburg in 1873, his vessel being "Dart"). Any information would be
Best Regards..................Alex Ritchie
