Something I've read in Lloyd's registry in 1881 indicated that the 2nd Robinson NUPHAR was a rebuild of the 1st's salvaged hulk.

I'd be interested in hearing directly from anyone who has specific information on the Nuphar.

This from the New York Times in 1882
SEAVILLE, N.J., Sept. 23.

--The steam-ship Nuphar, Capt. Brooks, from North Shields, England, for Philadelphia, with pig-iron and drugs, grounded on Townsend Inlet bar, about 20 miles above Cape May, at 4 o clock this morning, and now lies directly across the inlet. She was a new iron steam-ship. [built by Joseph Robinson and sons] of North 6. and was built at that place last year at a coat of S200.000. She is consigned to L. Co., of Philadelphia. The value of her Is about Q50,000. At a late hour this she was to Ro to , as a south-east wind has been all the afternoon, and the sea is over her. The Captain and crew are on shore, cared for at Life-saving Station No. NEw

Hi
I was R/O on Photinia for several years. We had just returned from NZ after laying 3 power cables. 10 months UK to UK, loaded grain atThevenard SA n way home. After that we laid further cables between Trinidad and Tobago, after that she was restored to a bulk carrier, but later came down to NZ again to lay a replacement cable. I was living in NZ by that time

Hi,
I'm hoping you can help me. I'm doing research to learn more about my family - The Robinson family as I'm one of the only few living desendants. My grandparents have both passed away however I have found memories of the stags head that sat in my grandads house which used the hang in the office of my great grandfather. Any information that you have about the robinson family or where I can find it would be fantastic. I'm not in contact with my Mum who is my only other living link.
Many thanks

There is also a direction to a Stag Line website belonging to 'Oceantramp'.
Enjoy.

Hi, Is anyone having the same problem as I am? I have been attempting to access Oceantramp's website for some few days now, but always end up at Orange's website for free webpage making. I thought it may have been a bug on my computer but it is the same with my sister's system.

It looks like the site's gone, Vin christo.
Let's hope Oceantramp comes back to this thread and explains or you could send him a PM.
Regards
Kris

Loss of website

Hello oceantramp,

Please ignore my reply to your PM - you are way ahead of me. I'm sure everyone else with an interest in Stag history will be awaiting news of its return.
best of luck,

Vinchristo.

Hello, I am also doing family research on the Stag Line and the Robinson family. I have emailed you as well but I do have a Robinson family tree that could be of some use.

I attended a wedding in the Maritime Building in North Shields yesterday and was probably more interested in the pictures of Stag Line ships and earlier maps of the area which adorned the reception area than I was in the wedding. I thought that the inscription on the blue plaque may be of interest to those who don’t live nearby.

“Built 1806-7 as a subscription library for Tynemouth literary and philosophical society. Occupied 1895-1980 by Stag Line Ltd.. one of Tyneside’ oldest family – owned shipping companies. The building still bears the stag emblem. “

I was with Houlder Bros and had no conection with Stag line.

Kind regards

Bob W.

No way. :-) I don't think I would re marry at 68, in any case I don't think my wife of 42 years would stand for it. LOL

This was my oldest son's second wedding, the mad impetuous fool.

Kind regards

A two time loser, is that why he opted for a Stag Day instead of a Stag Night?

I like it, I should have thought of that. ;-)

Maybe stating something already known, but the old Stag Line office building in North Shields is now a listed building and does registry wedding services.
Been to one or two and they do a pretty good job of them. So at least the old place is being put to good use. Albi

God forbid John.

I can vouch for that Albi, despite my earlier somewhat cynical post, the wedding on Saturday was a huge success and carried out with care and due decorum.

Rightly or wrongly I could imagine the room where the ceremony was carried out, resounding to talk of Stag Line activities. It have may have been the boardroom perhaps?

In the reception area were photos that included the "Photinia"and "Cydonia".

Kind regards

I joined Stag line in June 1969 , first ship was the Cydonia which I joined in Belfast as a Deck Cadet it was her last trip before being sold and I paid off in Rotterdam handing her over to the new owners. I stayed with Stag line till I finished my cadetship then I went to work for the Kuwaite's .
Would be happy to get in touch with any old shipmates.

G'Day All !
I did one trip on the Eskglen in 1954/55. Signed on in Rotterdam, and she went to Shanghai and Chefoo for a full cargo of peanuts. Had a memorable time in Aden on New Years Eve. With being the youngest member of the crew I was told to get up on the Foc,sle, and ring sixteen bells. No sooner did that when Aden seemed to come alive. You could hear all the troops singing their heads off clear across the harbour from the NAAFI Club.
Every ship was giving it their best to make the most sound. I was gobsmacked to say the least, thinking "Christ" did I start all that. Anyway it made one very happy memory for a newbie Pantry Boy on his second trip to sea. The crew were great blokes 50/50 English and Dutch (Learnt my first swear word in Dutch off them. (grin). The we made our way to Hamburg to unload where I was introduced to the delights of the REEPERBAHN and Ten mark Allee. Nuff said. I always think of the Eskglen with fondness.
