Glasgow Steam Coasters Co. Ltd

Glasgow Steam Coasters Co. Ltd
Hello All;
I am hoping some of our knowledgeable Coaster fans might shed some light on this company known as "The Glasgow Steam Coasters Co. Ltd". I would also be delighted to know more about the ships owned and operated by them. The ships I think I have found for them are herein listed, but cannot be sure all of these sailed for this company. All the vessels here were built on The Clyde, and the only research available to me is that fine Clydebuilt site. The time period I have established as 1884 - 1911. I base this on the few ships I have found for them. They don't all say "Glasgow Steam Coasters", but most in the included list do. The others all have at least the following owners, but most of these are thought to have worked for them at some point
Paton & Hendry
Glasgow Steam Coasters Ltd (Hendry McCallum & Co), Glasgow
Home Trade Steam Carrying Co Ltd (Paton & Hendry), Glasgow
Glasgow Steam Coasters Co Ltd (Paton & Hendry), Glasgow
A few have as listed below, but other sources for same say Glasgow Steam Coasters for them to.
J & G Frew (Home Trade Steam Carrying Co), Glasgow.
I would be most grateful for further information for this company. It would be nice to know if they obtained other vessels either used or built outside the Glasgow area.
Cheers, Rory

Seem to remember a company called P. D. Hendry & Co. Ltd. operating out of an office in Clyde Street. I think they operated small vessels round the coast in the aggregate trade but forgive my memory if I'm wrong.

Thanks Jim;
Not sure of anything about these "Managers?" Reference is also made of them. as follows: "Trading as "Glasgow & Belfast Carrying" Company, 1896 Had three ships BADGER, GRAMPUS and ARDGOWEN, but have no info for them. The firm is also listed as owning a large fleet of "Puffers".
Cheers, Rory

You might want to add Badger, ON 102688, built 1894 by Purnell & Sons, Glasgow. 89 tons gross. Single mast, smack rigged, clincher built. She was owned in 1909 by Glasgow Steam Coasters Company Ltd, 142 St Vincent St, Glasgow. Sunk by UB-18 on 3 August 1916 when owned by Thomas Harvey, Stamshaw Chemical Works, Portsmouth.
