The painting reproduction depicts the ship, William Tapscott, which was built by a Tapscott along with a group of partners. It seems appropriate to have it here as it can be thought of as the representation of our family of Tapscotts, all afloat together in a genealogical sea. full of periods of smooth sailing; interspersed with rough seas, foggy conditions, and often varying from its main course to explore uncharted waters.The William Tapscott was one of the largest full-rigged ships built in Maine during the 1850s. She was a typical "Down Easter"-sturdy, moneymaking, moderately sparred, and designed for carrying capacity. She was a three-decker with a square stern and billethead. Among her owners, including her namesake, were such well-known mariners as William Drummond, Gilbert C. Trufant, and George B. Cornish. She hailed from New York.
