Hi Seafordpete

I believe that Thos. & Jno. Brocklebank (Brocklebank Line) had a funnel in those colours as the attachment
May be of use

Seaford pete,

Sir Sam fey was a Senior Exec of a railway company if memory serves, unlikely that Thos & Jno Brocklebank are involved in your quest for info. Sam Fey was around at the turn of the last century Railway Company, Nottingham rings a bell ? Could it not be a Ferry company/vessel ?

Seaford pete,
A colleague, much more knowledgable than myself has come up with the following link which may throw some light on the subject of Sir Sam Fay.

Unable to see blue band on vessels funnel ?

Hope this helps.

Interesting article on Wiki HERE ( that might give you a steer. Is it possible that the ship in question was a railway ferry?

This bit of scandal might also be of interest HERE ( but you will have to scroll down a bit.
