I have a running query on my web pages on Cpatain J L Vivian Millett, who says of BOADICEA
"a pretty little barque called the BOADICEA of about six hundred tons register."
I cannot identify this Barque, most records seen show vessels which were much larger, or they were steamships, or they simply weren’t afloat at the time when J L Vivian Millett saw her. Only two fit roughly the size. Perhaps …..
908 grt Ship; Built 1847 St John ( nr Plymouth UK )
Owners J & R Reed; Registered S John; Master Captain Lovett
Fate Unknown
or
Boadicea; Captain J Anderson; 1884 Captain Charles Smith
865 grt; 19ft draft; Iron steamer; 245 ft x 31 ft x 19 ft
ON 653440; Signal Letters LFQD
Built April 1872 Hebburn Newcastle; Registered N Shields
Owners Anderson & Shaw
In 1884 - Owners Adamson & Short

Another possibility.

Not come across Boardicia.
Best Wishes, Raymond
