I sailed as 1st Mate on the Trefusis , Treneglos and the Kohinur , but then I was sent to the bulk carriers Duhallow , Atherstone and Fernie.
Unfortunately , that was the end , because in 1972 , P & O absorbed everything into the " divisions" , and I left the group after a very happy four years.

Hello George, I was first trip J/E on "Trelissick", out of Barry in September '62. This was before the Hain Stemship company became Hain Norse. The trip was eight months twelve days and seventeen hours of total pugatory! I never signed on another diesel engined ship, although I was superintendent engineer on a few.

Thanks for the e-mail George, I sort of know the feeling! I see that you were with KSC, I think I did a couple of jobs for them in Rotterdam in the '80s, I was also doing port repairs for KOTC. It's a funny thing about, "Hungry Hains", a great uncle of mine was carpenter on one, "Treleven", in 1910/11 ( or was that the Trevelan?-(for the experts)), he jumped ship in San Francisco to rebuild the place after the fire, then he joined the US Army to get back to the UK in 1917/18. As an apprentice on Cardiff and Barry docks, it was normal to see lots of Houlder and Hain ships in port and dry dock.

Aye George, the "Tre" prefix to the vesel's names comes from the Cornish word Tre, which means "land" or "of the land"
There are indeed many villages named with such a prefix, but also a very popular surname prefix in Cornwall too.
Fine looking vessels they were, and thats no error.

Kernow Bys Vyken!!

Hains and Hain-Nourse

Hi

Hains ships were in fact named after Manor Houses, Farms etc mainly owned by relatives and friends of the Hain family.

I served my time, starting on Trelevan 1962 and Trecarne mainly but also spent time on Tremorvah and Tremedow. Then went on Jumnah before moving onto the bulk carriers Duhallow and Fernie, the pay was better and so was leave. A good company which gave a sound basis on which to build.

Treboats.

I think I may be the last apprentice to have joined HN, 1971 just a few months before the great take over. Really enjoyed my time with them, sailed on Kohinur twice and Trefusis once before being sent for a more 'important appointment ' P & O's Strathconon !. Personnel Officer for Apprentices was Dougy Arnold.

Dave

Hains names

Was meant to sail on Trefusis on my first trip in late 1961 but broke my collar bone and got the Trelevan with Capt Bill Boyd, Ch Officer John Armstrong instead. Cant remember many other names Capt Donald Pemberthy, who died earlier this year, Capt Horace ? was on the Trecarne, Capt Billy Whitaker on Duhallow also Capt Lennox, he and Penberthy two of the finest Masters I ever sailed under.

It was very sad when P&O got rid of the company and created the various divisions, but by that time the whole industry was being run but certainly not managed by "Bean Counters"

treboats,
I also sailed in Hains, I believe (or so I was told) that Captain Lennox was in fact a Polish seafarer who pitched up in the UK during WW2, he changed his name from Antonovitch to Lennox after the family he was put up with in Glasgow. I have always been concerned as to the veracity of this tale, can anyone confirm or quash the story?

Yours aye,

Slick

treboats,
Your reference to Captain Horace ----- set me thinking and trawling the memory banks, and whilst shaving it came to me Captain Horace Gravell !!
Captain Penberthy was the last Captain I sailed with in Hains he came out to bring the Trewidden home after the death of Captain JJ Reilly in 1969.

Yours aye,

Slick

September '62, master of "Trelissick", was Capt Whitaker, Known as Windy Willie when foggy or Cyclone Bill when it was blowing! We ran out of fuel and food on that trip, picked up a tow in force 8 off Japan, then the wind started to blow! gen. av, 4kts astern for two or three days. The C/O was Richard Bonney, ex Conway, C/E was Peter Russel Cook, almost a full Barry crowd, including the cook. 8 month 12 days and 17 hours, was asked if I would like to transfer to Trident Tankers, which I politely declined, as there was NO way I was going to sea with them if the, "Trelissick", was the prime example of the P&O fleet!

HAIN STEAMSHIP CO.

The Hain family had long been resident in St. Ives, and their name can be traced back to the 16th century. Their first recorded shipping venture would seem to be a part share in the fishing lugger DASHER, wich was built and registered at St. Ives in 1816.
Edward Hain (I), Michael Welch and Matthew Daniel, all described as mariners took equal shares in the vessel. She was comamded by Edward Hain (I) until in 1832 he retired from the sea, although his shareholding was retained.
The DASHER was succesful, and on 17 February 1838 the schooner CAMILLA was purchased. This time control of the vessel was firmly in the hands of the Hain family, with 16 shares held by Edward Hain (I) and 32 shares held by his son Edward. The balance of the shares were held by Richard Paynter a St. Ives fisherman whose family was closely connected with the Hains.

The CAMILLA was purchased from Thomas and William Bolitho of Gulval near Penzance, two very succesful local merchants. In addition to their shipowning activities, they also had interests in fish curing and tin smelting, and the family went on to become merchant bankers and the financiers os many of the subsequent Hain ships.

The potential of the ship was doubtless recognised by Edward Hain (II), who commanded her for some years prior to purchase. It was with her that the family gained experience of the deep sea trades with regular voyages to the Mediterranean with cured fish.

With the delivery of the schooner MYSTERY in 1850, the third Edward Hain, son of Edward (II), became active in the business. Like his father, he was also a master mariner and was to command a number of their vessels. Business prospered, albeit on a small scale, and the financial interest of the Bolithos became more apparent. In addition to the carriage of cured fish to the mediterranean, returning with Greek and Turkish dried fruit, Hains also entered the West Indies sugar and Brazilian coffee trades.

December 1851 saw the birth of the fourth Edward Hain, followed shortly afterwards by the death of his great grandfather, Edward (II). The succeeding years saw little expansion of the fleet, with never more than three vessels in service at any one time. By now the fleet was trading even further afield, and in 1862 the brigantine EMILY sailed from Wales on a voyage of 15 months duration which was to include visits to ports in Spain, Canada, Brazil, France, Holland and Ireland. Her cargo included coal, salt, fish, sugar, oil cake, bran and oats.

At the time of the death of Edward Hain (II) in February 1866, the fleet consisted of two brigantines GLYNN and EMILY, with a third, MARGARET HAIN (named after the wife of Edward Hain (II)) under construction at Rye. Shareholdings in the vessels were largely divided between the family who owned the major part, and Thomas Bolitho the banker.

After an education in various private schools in St. Ives, Edward Hain (III) was sent to the local branch of Bolitho's Bank for a training in accountancy and book keeping. Unlike his father and grandfather, he showed no interest in going to sea and it was recognised that his talents could best be employed in management. After two years at the bank, he moved on to a tea merchant's office in London to gain knowledge of current commercial practice. The combination of the bank training and the time spent in London was to have a profound influence on the development of the company. Upon his return to St. Ives in 1878 he presented his father with an ultimatum; either the company purchase steamships or he would resign.
The year previously, the Hains had taken delivery of their first and only iron barquentine, the T.S.B., a name derived from the initials of Thomas Simon Bolitho. The transition from wood to iron had been a significant development for them and the advance to steamships of more than four times the size must have seemed inconceivable. Although the compound expansion reciprocating engine had been introduced in 1860, steam tramps were still regarded as slow and unreliable. The average steamer rarely exceeded 8 knots whereas some of the ocean going sailing ships could exceed 17 knots in favourable conditions. Edward was convinced that greater profits were to be gained from steam and that the days of sail were numbered. Not the least of his father's worries was the cost, estimated to be some £ 18,000, and how the vessel was to be financed.

Young Edward was confident that the money could be borrowed from Bolithos Bank and it was eventually agreed to order one steamer if sufficient shareholders could be found who were willing to invest their money. The Bolithos were approached and took no time in deciding to support the venture by standing in with the money until a shareholding could be formed, and in agreeing to take shares themselves. Having secured financial support, young Edward visited the yard of John Readhead and Co. at South Shields, where a lasting relationship with the shipbuilders was formed. The first steamer was ordered and Readheads went on to build 73 more during Edward's lifetime; in fact he never had dealings with any other yard. A total of 87 ships were eventually delivered by Readheads to the company, one of the most outstanding owner/builder associations in British shipbuilding history.
In recognition of the support provided by the Bolithos, the first steamer was named TREWIDDEN after the Bolitho estate outside Penzance. She was launched by the daughter of John Readhead on 26th November 1878 and ran trials off South Shields in January 1879. The contract price was £18,000 which was funded by the issue of 64 shares of £285. The shareholdings in this and subsequent early steamers were for the most part held by members of the Hain and Bolitho families, plus a large number of small investors from St. Ives and neighbouring villages. There seemed to be no shortage of potential investors and an examination of early lists shows master mariners, farmers, mine agents, and even local shopkeepers. This was to be the pattern of shareholding until the formation of the limited liability company in 1901. Very often the same shareholders, such as the Hayle ship chandler Biggleston Spray and the St. Ives draper Richard Permewan purchased one or two shares in each successive ship. If funds were not readily available, the Bolitho Bank was always ready to advance the money at a suitable rate of interest. In succeeding years the variety of shareholders increased to include merchants and agents in Smyrna and the Black Sea ports, which was indicative of the Black Sea grain trade in which the ships were engaged in those early days.

In 1881 he went into partnership with Cardiff shipbroker R.A. Foster to form Foster, Hain & Co., shipping agents.
After 1883 a number of ships were registered to conform with the Companies' Acts of 1862 to 1880. This resulted in the formation of single ship companies with limited liability and a share issue considerably in excess of the former sixty fourth system. Edward Hain (III) and Edward Hain (IV) were appointed sole directors of all the single ship companies and designated managers of the ships. For this they received 2 ½ % on the gross earnings of each steamer plus travelling and other expenses incurred. By 1901 the fleet had increased spectacularly to 22 steamers with an estimated value of £500,000. It was then decided to amalgamate the single ship companies into one limited liability company. On 16th September 1901 The Hain Steamship Company Limited was registered with a capital of £500,000 in £10 shares.

The steady development of his shipping business did little to hinder Edward's interest in politics. In 1883 he had been elected a member of the St. Ives Town Council, and the following year he was chosen as mayor. He undertook his duties conscientiously and was, as a result, re elected to that office in 1885 and 1886. He was later elected for further terms in 1889, 1895 and 1899. He served as a councillor and alderman for 20 years, and was also a county councillor for Cornwall for 15 years. In 1885 he was placed on the Commission of Peace for St. Ives and in 1889 on the list of County Justices. With such a background it was hardly surprising that he decided to stand for Parliament, and in 1900 he was elected unopposed as Member for the St. Ives constituency. The seat had become vacant following the retirement of Thomas Bedford Bolitho. Edward Hain (IV) held the seat as a Liberal Unionist until 1906, when increasing business pressures forced his resignation. Public office still attracted him however, and in 1912 he was appointed High Sheriff for Cornwall. His standing in shipping circles was by now considerable, and in 1910 he was elected President of the Chamber of Shipping. This was followed in 1912 by a knighthood for services to British shipping.
His fleet continued to expand at a rapid rate following the incorporation in 1901, and by 1913 numbered 36 ships. In addition, there were a further five on order at Readheads. The expansion of the fleet had been completely financed out of revenue without making any fresh issue of capital. As noted earlier, all the new steamers were coming from Readheads on Tyneside, who in 1907 had launched their 50th for the company; the TREVINCE. At her launching, Edward Hain (IV) observed that one ship out of every five built by Readheads since 1878 had been built for his company, and he had signed all 50 contracts.

The company entered the 1914 war in a strong financial position and with a respectable fleet. Unfortunately two steamers TREGLISSON 4,265/12 and TREVIDER 4,260/13 were berthed in German ports at the outbreak and were both detained for the duration. They were declared total losses in 1915 by the North of England Protection and Indemnity Association, and the company was paid £50,000 for each vessel in compensation. Both were returned to the United Kingdom at the cessation of hostilities, and the company exercised its option to repossess them. The company also lost the services of TREVORIAN 4,144/11, which was trapped in the Black Sea and came under Russian control. Like the other two she survived the war, but was wrecked in 1919 on her return voyage from Novorossisk. A further 18 vessels were lost by enemy action and 100 lives were lost.

Sir Edward suffered a severe blow in 1915 when his only son Edward (V) was killed at Gallipoli during the Dardanelles campaign. He had been serving as a captain with the Cornish Squadron of the Royal 1st Devon Yeomanry. Edward (V) had been training in the family business for a number of years and his father never fully recovered from his loss. In June 1917, Sir Edward suffered a severe breakdown during a German air raid on London, and returned to Cornwall to convalesce. On 20th September 1917 he died at his home Treloyhan, St. Ives, and the news stunned the shipping world. Lord Inchcape of the P&O Steam Navigation Company fully appreciated the value of the fleet, and on 27th October 1917 an offer to purchase was made. The fleet, which at this time numbered 23 vessels, was valued at £2,000,000 and cash assets were held of a similar value. The P&O therefore offered £80 per share, valuing the total shareholding of 49,957 shares at £3,996,560. In addition, they agreed to pay £400,000 compensation to the retiring partners in Edward Hain and Son. The company was therefore acquired for £4,396,560. It is still remembered in St. Ives how Lord Inchcape and Robert Sawle Read embarked on the local fishing boat MOPPET and sailed into the Bay, where all contracts were signed. Immediately upon acquisition, P&O sold 50% of their shareholding to their subsidiary British India Steam Navigation Co. Ltd. and these two companies thereafter remained the sole shareholders.
It was Lord Inchcape's intention from the outset to keep Hain as a separate entity within the group and management of the fleet was to remain firmly in the hands of the Hain directors with P&O exerting overall control. One of the first consequences of the takeover, was an increase in the importance of the London office. The company had long had a presence in the capital, the first office being opened there in 1887 in partnership with Robert Sawle Read, an accountant from St. Ives. It was not too long before the directors were moved to London, and the St. Ives office was left to deal with staffing matters. In addition to London and St. Ives, the company employed a considerable staff at Cardiff, where an office had been opened as early as 1881. This operation was run by another partner, Richard Andrews Foster, and he was responsible for the chartering of ships for outward coal cargoes, bunkering, storing, dry-docking and repairing. In later years a small engineering company, Roath Engineering Co. Ltd. was established there.

Having satisfactorily acquired control of Hain, P&O next made moves to acquire the long established London shipowner Mercantile Steam Ship Co. Ltd. Mercantile had grown from the activities of the brothers John and Charles Dunkerly, who purchased their first vessel NILE in 1865. The company prospered, and at the outbreak of war in 1914 they were running a fleet of some 14 tramps, with two further vessels under construction.
However, as a result of heavy war losses and poor prospects for the future, the directors made it known that the company was available for disposal. The P&O was once again interested and late in 1917, Hain acquired the majority of shares in the company at a cost of £ 1,484,944. The remaining shares were purchased in the years 1922 and 1923, and by 31st March 1923, the whole of the share capital was held by Hain.
For the first few years after 1917 the Mercantile fleet continued to trade as before, with Hain acting as managers. No new vessels were ordered, although in 1921 Hain transferred to Mercantile the contract for one of the ships they had under construction at Readheads. This ship was to be completed in July 1922 as the MIN. However, it soon became apparent to the P&O Board that there was little to be gained in running two separate companies in the tramping trades. Therefore on 21st June 1923 the Mercantile Board resolved to put the company into voluntary liquidation and transfer the fleet assets to Hain. Although the Mercantile steamers were promptly repainted in Hain colours, their traditional names were retained, and did in fact last until 1936. Then, at a board meeting in September of that year, it was finally resolved to preserve the uniformity of the fleet names. As a result, the former Mercantile steamers plus NIMODA and NOHATA of 1928, were all given “manufactured" Cornish names with the prefix “TRE".

No sooner had the acquisition of Mercantile been completed than the directors embarked upon further financial manoeuvrings. Once again the influence of Inchcape and the P&O were much in evidence. This time their efforts were directed towards a number of companies formerly controlled by the veteran shipowner Frank C. Strick. His fleet and business had been sold to Lord Inchcape's personal company, Gray, Dawes and Co. after the War, and in May 1923 they offered it to P&O and it was decided that Hain should purchase the whole of the share capital four Strick companies Strick Line (1923) Ltd., The Shahristan Steamship Co. Ltd., The Turkistan Steamship Co. Ltd. and The Serbistan Steamship Co. Ltd. The four companies were purchased for £573,468, a loan being arranged to cover the cost. The purchase was almost certainly undertaken for the financial benefit of the P&O since the companies were engaged almost exclusively in the Arabian Gulf liner trades, and would seem totally incompatible with Hain's existing business.

In 1928, in spite of his advancing years (he was by now 79) Frank Strick approached Inchcape and expressed an interest in returning to the Gulf trade. After selling his fleet and business to Inchcape in 1920 he had registered the London, Paris and Marseilles Steamship Co. Ltd. and it was through this company that he intended restoring his interest. The purchase of a 49% minority shareholding was negotiated by Frank Strick in Strick Line (1923) Ltd. and The Shahristan Steamship Co. Ltd. for £236,228. The Turkistan Steamship Co. Ltd. and The Serbistan Steamship Co. Ltd. were then to be liquidated. Hain retained the controlling interest in the two trading companies until September 1935, when they were sold to the P&O for £2 10,000. P&O ultimately acquired the Strick minorities in 1972.
The Hain company had suffered heavily in the war, losing 18 vessels as a result of enemy action and three by marine causes. Fortunately, two which had been detained in German ports, TREGLISSON and TREVIDER, were returned in 1919 and quickly put back into service. New vessels had been delivered from Readheads throughout the war, but at a rate far below the level of losses. Further orders were placed with the yard when hostilities ceased, but under the new ownership, the dependence on this one yard was about to change. Under the guidance of Lord Inchcape, negotiations were commenced for the purchase of 16 wartime standard ships. These were of various types and from a number of different yards, as follows:
A type cargo carriers B type cargo carriers H type small cargo carrier Z type heavy oiler
WAR ACONITE WAR BULLDOG WAR QUINCE WAR AIRMAN
WAR JONQUIL WAR GANNET
WAR LAUREL WAR MALLARD
WAR LILAC WAR PLOVER
WAR LILY WAR QUAIL
WAR PALM WAR STAG
WAR PAMPAS
WAR PICOTEE

In addition, the company purchased seven ex German prizes from The Shipping Controller at a total cost of £1,027,000. These were not entirely suitable for their use and five were soon transferred to the Federal Steam Navigation Co. Ltd., another company controlled by P&O A further vessel, TREVESSA, was soon lost, and only TRELEVAN remained in the fleet.

The influence of P&O over the company increased during the following years and Hain were asked to manage and crew a number of P&O cargo liners on their Eastern services. It was not long before they began to order vessels specifically for use on P&O routes and the first of these, NIMODA and NOHATA, were launched late in 1927. This order was followed by one for four 14 ½ knot cargo liners, launched as BANGALORE, BURDWAN, BEHAR and BHUTAN. These latter vessels were permanently employed on P&O services, although registered under Hain Steamship and manned, stored, maintained and repaired by them. All were to become war losses, but in May 1941 a further vessel in the series was ordered from Barclay, Curle, at a cost of £395,000. This, the second BEHAR, only lasted eight months before she was sunk in the Pacific by a Japanese cruiser. A further two vessels for P&O service were ordered, SOMALI and SOUDAN, but although the former was launched for Hain, both were sold to P&O before completion.
The income from the vessels on charter to P&O undoubtedly helped the company over the lean years of the 1930s. In common with most shipowners, much of their fleet was laid up for long periods, the company favouring the River Fal in Cornwall. In 1930 as many as 15 of their vessels were idle in a stretch of the river between Woodbury and Tolverne known locally as Hain's Alley or Reach. They used this location for many years, the last time being in 1963 when TREMAYNE was laid up there for a brief period. During these years of recession the income earned was pitifully low and in many cases failed to cover running costs. It is however a tribute to the expertise of the Head Office staff that even in the blackest years the fleet usually made a profit on voyages, albeit at times a very small one. In the year ending March 1934, the profit on voyages for a fleet of 34 vessels after charging the cost of laying up tonnage, was a mere £33,029. This compares with £656,422 in the greatly improved year ending March 1938.

Despite the poor prospects for the foorseeable future, a contract was signed on 11th September 1935 with Litgows Ltd., Port Glasgow, for two new vessels of 5,200 gross tons. The cost was to be £92,595 each, payable one fifth on laying the keel, one fifth on completion of framing, one fifth on completion of plating, one fifth on launching and one fifth on delivery. The contract was completed as TREWELLARD and TREGARTHEN in July and september 1936 respectively. It was soon followed by another with the same yard for a a further two vessels of identical dimensions. TREVALGAN and TREVANION, built at a cost of £110,975 each, were to be the first motorships in the fleet.

At the outbreak of the Second World War, the fleet numbered 24 vessels with a further three on order. The latter had all been ordered from Clydeside yards in April 1939 at a cost of approximately £ 156,000 each. It was not long before the company suffered its first loss, TREVANION of 1937. She fell victim to the German pocket battleship ADMIRAL GRAF SPEE when five days out from Cape Town and her crew were taken prisoner. After an interval of several months there were further losses and their frequency increased as the war progressed. The level of losses was in fact so high that all of the vessels in commission in 1939 were eventually lost plus two of those on order. In part, their place was taken by Ministry of War Transport tonnage allocated to the company for management, a total of 30 such vessels being entrusted to them.

It had always been company policy to replace losses with newbuildings, but the rapid rate of loss during the war made this impracticable. Orders were placed for new tonnage, especially in 1942, but yard space was at a premium. As a result, the company entered into negotiations with the London shipowner J. and C. Harrison for the purchase of four motorships, all less than two years old. As a result, contracts were signed on 24th January 1944 for the purchase of HARLESDEN 7,273/43, HARPAGUS 7,271/42, HARPALYCE 7,269/42 and HARDINGHAM 7,269/42. Because of Ministry commitments, delivery of HARPALYCE and HARDINGHAM was considerably delayed as can be seen from the accompanying table. In addition, another Doxford motorship, REGISTAN 7,368/44, was purchased from Strick Line.

Vessel Contract Signed Delivered Cost
HARLESDEN 24.1.1944 18. 2.1944 £234,450
HARPAGUS 24.1.1944 16. 5.1944 £232,450
HARPALYCE 24.1.1944 30.11.1944 £231,450
HARDINGHAM 24.1.1944 13.12.1944 £229,450
REGISTAN 2.7.1945 9. 7.1945 £233,000

At the cessation of hostilities the company was left with a fleet of 11 vessels, all motorships. Although new tonnage was ordered, the opportunity was taken to bid for a number of Empire ships under the Ministry of Transport's Ship Disposal Scheme. Bids were placed for a total of six vessels, but only that for EMPIRE TILBURY at £250,000 was successful. She entered the fleet in March 1946 as TREVEAN. Doxford at Sunderland had earlier been given an order for a further four motorships of the TREWIDDEN type at an estimated price of £258,000 each. Within three months of the order it was decided to increase their engine size from three to four cylinders at an additional cost of £15,640 per ship. A backward step was taken in December 1946 when two steamships were ordered. This was the first order to be placed at the Readhead yard for 24 years, and a price of £310,000 each was agreed. A further steamship was ordered from William Hamilton early in 1948, but all three were soon to prove uneconomic and were disposed of to Pakistani owners within ten years of delivery.

Although the vessels permanently engaged on P&O services had all been lost in the war, tonnage was still chartered to that company when required. Late in 1950 it was agreed to sell three motorships to the P&O for approximately £112,000 each. The value had been written down for tax purposes and there was an agreement allowing Hain to repurchase them at a later date. Crewing and management was to remain in the hands of Hain. Consequently early in 1951 TRESILLIAN 7,368/44, TREVOSE 7,354/44 and TREVETHOE 7,355/44 were all registered under the ownership of The Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company. In 1956 a further four motorships were transferred; TREWORLAS 7,271/42, TREVELYAN 7,292/ 43, TREWELLARD 7,269/42 and TREVEAN 7,312/45. All were returned in 1958 with the exception of TRESILLIAN which had been lost in the North Atlantic in November 1954.

During 1957 Hain finalised plans for the closure of Roath Engineering Co. Ltd., their Cardiff subsidiary. This company had been formed in 1925 in association with R. & H. Green and Silley Weir, another P&O company, to carry out work afloat on their vessels. At that time Hain were regular users of the South Wales ports, and are reputed to have boasted that there was never a time when there was not a white H in the Bristol Channel. Many of their outward cargoes were fixed on the Cardiff Exchange and the office of Foster, Hain and Read at Salvage Buildings, Cardiff, was particularly busy. Since most of the fleet was using the port it was considered appropriate for the company to undertake their own minor repairs there. Drydocking and underwater work was however undertaken by outside contractors.
The works were located in Roath Dock, Cardiff, and consisted of a large machine shop, boiler shop, blacksmith's and coppersmith's shops. Until the War, Roath worked almost exclusively on Hain vessels, and little effort was made to secure outside contracts. With the outbreak of war things changed and the company started working for the Admiralty, especially on frigate overhauls. This work continued after the cessation of hostilities and was supplemented by considerable outside commercial work. A notable contract was the conversion of the Flower class corvette HYDRANGEA into the merchant HYDRALOCK. Hain vessels now rarely loaded coal in the port, but Roath was kept busy with major engine repairs on their vessels. All of the motorships were fitted with Doxford engines which after a few years gave considerable trouble on account of pitting. It was necessary to strip down the engines, remetal the bearings and machine the journals. This constituted a major overhaul and was carried out on virtually the entire fleet. The lifeboats for many of the newbuildings were also constructed by Roath. However, developments around the site, and out dated machinery, meant that the days of the company were limited, and in February 1957 the decision was taken to close down. Trading ceased on 4th February 1957 and all plant and stock was sold to C. H. Bailey Ltd.

Company profits throughout the early 1950s had been maintained at satisfactory levels and the fleet was fully employed. They were further helped in 1956 by the Suez crisis which provided a sudden and unexpected boost to freight rates. The financial year ending September 1957 saw profits of £1,094,678, an increase of almost 60% on the previous year. Confident of an improving freight market, a new construction programme was embarked upon, and by March 1957 seven new vessels had been ordered. Delivery was scheduled over the period 1957 to 1961 and the first to be completed TREMEADOW, was handed over to the company by Williarn Hamilton and Co. Ltd. at Princes Pier, Greenock on 29th January 1958. She was immediately chartered to Federal Steam Navigation Co. Ltd. of London for five years, proof that tonnage now being built for the fleet was more than suited for service on the liner trades.
Unfortunately in 1957 the freight market collapsed and by June 1958 the Board were concerned about the volume of tonnage on order. Negotiations were commenced with William Hamilton and John Readhead in an attempt to cancel or defer their newbuildings numbered 523 (Hamilton) and 604 and 609 (Readhead). Work on numbers 523 and 604 was found to be so advanced that cancellation or even deferral would cause serious problems. However an agreement was reached with Readhead to defer Yard No. 609 indefinitely for ultimate completion at a time satisfactory to Hain. At that time a completion date of 1963/64 was being considered. In addition to the steps taken above, the company started to book lay up berths, anticipating that a considerable proportion of the fleet would soon be without employment. The first two vessels, the steamships TREGOTHNAN and TREGENNA, were laid up at Milford Haven on 22nd May and 6th June 1958 respectively.
As freight rates fell ever lower efforts were made to dispose of some of the older units in the fleet. TREVETHOE of 1944 was the first to go, sold for £143,000 to Panamanian owners after a short period of lay up in the River Fal. By late 1958 most of the fleet was trading at a loss and a deficit for the year of over £300,000 was envisaged. Finances did not deteriorate to this extent however and the bottom was reached during the year ending September 1960 when the profit on voyages was only £32,704. Already signs of a slight improvement were in evidence and negotiations were recommenced with Readheads for the completion of Yard No. 609. The vessel, which had been ordered on 23rd November 1956, was restarted on 8th March 1960 as a fixed value contract priced at £ 1,100,000 with delivery scheduled for September 1961. She was to be completed as TREFUSIS. During 1960 what were to be the final vessels in the Hain fleet were ordered. Two of these orders went to the Readhead yard at South Shields and marked the end of Hain's very long association with that builder. The third TRENEGLOS went to William Hamilton, and although launched for Hain, she was on completion registered in the ownership of another P&O subsidiary, the New Zealand Shipping Co. Ltd.

Freight rates remained at very low levels throughout the early 1960s and prompted the main P&O Board to undertake a detailed review of all their shipping operations. The conclusion was reached that there was not much of a future for general tramp shipping under the British flag. As such vessels were amongst the cheapest and simplest to operate, it was foreseen that the newly developing nations would be anxious to acquire them and so create considerable competition. In addition, the bulk carrier was seizing much of the traditional tramp business. As a first step, the fleet was amalgamated for operational purposes with that of fellow P&O subsidiary James Nourse Ltd. of London. A new management company Hain Nourse Management Ltd. was registered on 29th January 1964 and became responsible for the operation of the Hain and Nourse fleets. On 1 st July 1964 all shore and seagoing staff were transferred to the employment of that company. Further restructuring took place in 1965 when the fleet and trades of Nourse were finally transferred to Hain. In consequence, The Hain Steamship Co. Ltd. was renamed Hain¬Nourse Ltd. on 1st October 1965. In addition to the Nourse fleet, that of the Asiatic Steam Navigation Co. Ltd. was also acquired. The new company also took over the management of two bulk carriers, ATHERSTONE and BUCCLEUCH, which were registered with other group companies. Further bulk carriers were to follow in 1966.

The developments envisaged in the aforementioned P&O review became reality in the latter years of the decade. Competition from the developing nations coupled with the rapid growth of free flag fleets made further reorganisation inevitable. In the matter of a few years the container had revolutionised the liner trades and the days of the large liner fleets were numbered. In common with most other British operators, P&O elected to join one of the new consortia being formed in order to share the high cost of container ships and equipment. They therefore became a significant shareholder in Overseas Containers Ltd., and were in 1986 to acquire complete control of the company.
The reorganisation of the early 1960s (which included combining P&O and Orient passenger operations and setting up a specialist tanker company, Trident Tankers Ltd., as well as the Hain Nourse merger) now led to the total reorganisation of the P&O Group along lines suggested by management consultants McKinsey and Co. early in 1971. The steady introduction of the
new container ships meant a surplus of general cargo ships and reorganisation into operating divisions was commenced. Four principal shipping divisions were formed, these being:

1. P&O Bulk Shipping Division. This was to include the bulk carriers formerly
managed by Hain Nourse Ltd., the tankers and gas carriers of Trident Tankers Ltd. plus bulk shipping
registered under other P&O subsidiaries.
2. P&O General Cargo Division. In time this was to include all general cargo vessels in the subsidiary fleets, and was to include the last of the former Hain TRE boats.
3. European and Air Transport. Its Short Sea Shipping sector included the former Coast Lines and General Steam fleets and similar vessels.
4. P&O Passenger Division. To include the passenger and cruise liners.

Over the next few years all the former Hain Nourse fleet was to be registered in the ownership of the P&O Steam Navigation Company, and for a time the former owning company lay dormant. It was to be briefly revived in 1975 when the new 4,000 ton ro/ro ships BISON and BUFFALO were introduced. However the name no longer seemed appropriate and was soon changed to P&O Ferries Ltd., and as such still exists today, owning ships employed on services between Scotland and Orkney and Shetland.
So disappeared one of the great names of British tramp shipping, almost 100 years after the introduction of their first steamship TREWIDDEN. It is perhaps fitting that when the company identity was finally lost in 1972, there was still a TREWIDDEN in the fleet. The fifth vessel of that name, she was to be sold before she could be given one of the P&O STRATH names, and therefore never lost her Hain identity whilst under the British flag.

Gee! thanks Maritiem! I think that this must be the most comprehensive list of the Hain SS fleet I've ever seen on the net!.

HN Masters I can remember,
L J Annett (Paddy) sailed with him on Trefusis and Merkara.
Captain Lennox also on Merkara. There were quite a few Polish nationals in both HN and BI that came to the UK during war time.
Captain Sellars sailed with him on Kohinur.
Captain Armstrong I think went to P&O Ferries.
Captain Quigley went to P&O Ferries.
I have an old fleet list somewhere circa 1971, probably the last one will have to search for it.

regards
Dave

I will say thank you as well, is this a copy of the history nolonger available on BOT Aquaintences?

To answer Slicks question. Yes Capt Lennox was Polish although I dont know how he changed his name. He joined the Free Polish Navy and spent quite some time on MTB's in the channel but they were not armed as they were not trusted to begin with. At the end of hostilities he cadged lifts across Europe and into the Soviet zone to find his girlfriend and brought her out and they married. They lived in Harrow west London while he was at sea. He was a major contributer to my swallowing the anchor as one evening on the bridge he was chatting and said that it was his sons 21st birthday and he had been totting things up and had seen him for a total of 5 years in the past 21. I rather think that for all the good things it was rather a waste of life and I tended to agree. He was a man I greatly admired and only saw him loose his cool once when an apprentice arrived in the saloon for a meal looking very scruffy. It never happened again ! A good man who has probably crtossed the bar by now.

I remember Billy the Wit very well loved enjoying someone elses whisky, after the first bottle which enjoyed while was on watch I was not caught again. Lived in Wallesey with a pair of admirable daughters I recall, who attrected much attention when they visited with their mother.

Dear All,
There is a book titled 'Hain of St Ives' by K.J.O'Donoghue and H.S.Appleyard published by the World Ship Society which gives a potted history of the company and many photographs.

There is also a great book titled '1700 miles in open boats' by Cecil Foster. This is the account of the loss of the S S Trevessa by her Master, this book has become quite collectable and if you see it you should grab it.

regards
Dave

I started with Nourse Line in '61 on the Indus, then Kallada, Nurjehan, Trefusis (3 times) Tremayne, Atherstone, Kohinur, Trecarrell, Treneglos, Tremeadow and Trevalgan. So I have sailed with or am familiar with most of the names mentioned in the HN threads. It's just some of the faces that won't come back into focus. Talking of which, that is me, the good looking one, on the right in one of the Atherstone pics on Macphail's post above. Do you remember John, we used to share at least 6 cold beers after coming off watch at midnight and were sometimes still at it when the next watch came off at 0400. Might have been alright for you engine wallahs, replenishing lost body fluids, but it used to play havoc with my water works for the rest of the night. Oranjeboom was the worst offender, if I recall. The other 3rd Eng in your pics was Tim BREEN, who I sailed with again when he was Chief. I did keep the names of all earlier shipmates but neglected to do so after '66 so everything after that is a bit of a blur.
Some Masters' names that appear in my discharge book but not above include Ryan, Dodson, Darby, Abbott, Alexander, Robinson, Lister and Thorpe. Others I can't decipher, or remember. Sad, isn't it?
I was on Trefusis in Japan, late '69 ?, when we changed from white crew to Chinese, the first Hains ship to do so I think, certainly post war. That was probably the beginning of the end as the bean counters started to take control. I came ashore in '72 and look back on those days, when it wasn't an offence to enjoy yourself at work, with great fondness. There was never a dull moment, particularly on the white crew ships.
