Researching various ships built at Limehouse, London by Joseph Fletcher Fletcher, Son and Fearnall shipwrights.
Trying to locate any sail ship construction plans 1820-1870.
Having tried all the major National Maritime collections (and Kew) are there any other smaller depositories the records of such a shipbuilding company might have ended up (company wound up finally c1925).
Might any members have come across any plans for ships built for the above or know if they survived?
I am a member of the friends of LV50, a Trinity House wooden lightship that was built by Fletcher Son and Fearnall at Limehouse dock in 1879 to a design by Bernard Waymouth a Lloyds naval architect.
We have the original drawings and quite a lot of info – see http://www.friendsoflv50.org.uk
It would be great to get in touch to expand both our information. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
