Ships description

Immigrant Ship Information

(is this the correct ship?)

SOUTH CAROLINA
The "South Carolina" was a 1301 ton wooden screw steamer built in 1851 by Jabez Williams of New York for the Atlantic Steam Navigation Co. Her dimensions were 202.5ft x 38ft. and she had a clipper stem, one funnel and three masts, service speed 9 knots. She sailed from Charleston SC for Liverpool but went aground on the Charlestown Bar and had to put in to New York for repairs to her propeller. She eventually sailed for Liverpool and returned to NY on 23.11.1852 with 72 passengers. Her engines were removed in 1853 and she spent the rest of her life as a sailing vessel. Very little seems to be known of her after this date but in 1874 she was owned by J. Alexander of Liverpool. [Posted to the Emigration-Ships Mailing List by Ted Finch - 8 July 1997]
