  • HMS Poictiers HMS Poictier figurehead [] - - It's Free! : Ships Figurehead & Maritime Carver: MARITIMA WOOD CARVING ::: sculpture, research, tafferels
    HMS Poictiers HMS Poictiers was built in 1809 at the yard of John King at Upnor on the Medway She was a third rate 74 gun ship and served initially off the French coast during the blockade of Brest and then as part of Admiral Warren s fleet during the war of 1812 with America In 1817 she under went extensive repairs at Chatham dockyard where she then served as guard ship In 1848 she was paid off as a depot ship being no longer fit for active service and was finally broken up in 1857 The figurehead was then placed as a shore exhibit at the Sheerness dockyard Over the course of time the condition of the wood deteriorated to such an extent that the figure fell apart leaving no single piece that could reasonably be salvaged for purposes of reconstruction They were therefore used in conjunction with archive photographs to carve a replica Samples of the paint were analysed to return the figure to its former glory complete with gold leaf detailing In 2007 the completed figure was taken from my workshop to become a permanent exhibit at the Blue Town museum close to the old Sheerness yard

    trading between Liverpool and Trieste She made her last voyage in 1846 outward bound from Liverpool for Alexandra and was soon caught in a storm whilst still in the Irish Sea Battling against a lee shore she struck the Bedruthan Steps just South of Padstow in North Cornwall with the loss of her master mate and seven of her nine crew The morning after the wreck her cargo of cotton silks and brassware were strewn along the beach to be gathered up by local villagers The Exeter and Plymouth Gazette reported on Saturday the 28th of November 1846 that More than 20 persons have been summarily committed to Bodmin Gaol with hard labour from 3 5 months for plundering from the brig Samaritan and her cargo washed in by the seas wrecked off St Eval near Padstow during the late gales The figurehead as often happens was also washed ashore and for many years has stood in the garden of a house overlooking Constantine Bay along side the coastal path where it has become something of a local landmark The passage of time at this exposed cliff side have sadly taken their toll on the figure which has rotted beyond

  • Chieftain Chieftain figurehead [] - - It's Free! : Ships Figurehead & Maritime Carver: MARITIMA WOOD CARVING ::: sculpture, research, tafferels
    the Valhalla collection in Tresco Scilly Isles The figure was originally thought to have come from a vessel named the Chieftain wrecked off Hard Lewis in 1856 The Lloyds register for 1855 lists nine ships of that name The following year two were struck from the register one a Barque of 795 tons too large for such a figure and a barque of 310 tons which was built in the Scilly Isles for Banfield and Co in 1846 and traded between London and Sydney The fact that she was struck from the list suggests that she was either wrecked or broken up in that year As Scilly was her home port It would make sense that the figure remained there Another possibility is the Gilmore wrecked at Hard Lewis exactly ten years later in 1866 or In the same year another vessel named Chieftain was also struck from the Lloyds register This schooner of 192 tons was built at Garmouth on the banks of the river Spey on the east coast of Scotland between Lossiemouth and Buckie in 1862 for the owner master W Anderson and represents the perfect size of vessel for a figure of this size She traded
