The Court Line Group

For those that may have an interest, a definitive history of this group of companies is nearing completion for publication as an electronic book on CD.

It is been produced by a close friend with assistance from descendents of Haldin and Philips families and much of the already published details of the founding of the company has already been turned on its head Some of those errors have unfortunately been perpetuated on the internet as being factual without proper in depth research and validation, including within early posts on this thread.

The main problem currently being encountered is obtaining good quality images for inclusion where the author /publisher can obtain copyright holders’ authorities to reproduce and negate potential legal action for breach of copyright.

Hi jim , we nearly crossed paths I sailed on the Barrington Court as a boy first trip. Sailed from KGV London May 1960 trip round South Africa and back to Port Glasgow with iron ore paid off 5-8-60. We broke down 2 days out in the Bay of Biscay rolled round all day, only time I was nearly sea sick. All I can say it was a hell of a trip. regards Pat

I am looking for any information anyone might have about the last Cressington Court. But not on her Court Line story or after. Can anyone tell me if she ever sailed as Hector Halcyon in 1961 or was she sold from the shipyard.

However as there was not a lot of response I assume that a history of the company and their ships is not or was not available.
I therefore am now asking if anyone can supply info on the following Court Line ships:

Sinnington Court
Nollington Court
Wellington Court
Pennington Court
I have some very nice photographs of these ships which I would like to post in the Gallery but am reluctant to do so without some decent information to accompany the pictures.
Stuart Smith
In my book SHIPPING COMPANY LOSSES OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR, details are given of 17 Court Line ships. Of the 4 ships you seek information about, only the Pennington Court is listed.

PENNINGTON COURT (Captain J. Horne). Bound for Belfast from Saint John, New Brunswick, sailed in Convoy SC.103 which left New York on 26 September, 1942. Straggling when torpedoed twice by U.254 (Kptlt. Odo Loewe) at 9pm on 9 October. Struck by a third torpedo at 11.10pm and sank in position 5818N 2755W. The u-boat saw survivors in lifeboats, but they were never seen again. All 45 died.

I have a silver"snuff box", which was presented to my grandfather, who was Commodore Master in Court Line.
The inscription reads,
"ss Cressington Court
Captain John Gleghorn.
In remembrance of trial trip and run Tees to Cardif July 9 to 13 1938.
From WGL.
Hope this helps the Court Line history.

tricks of the mind? in the 60's while I sailed on tankers, I believed Court Line was the name of a holiday/cruise company, and somewhere in my mind they owned and operated MIDDLE DOCKS REpair yard on the TYNE.
I did not realise they had a pedigree in shipowning?
