The Fleets

Baines & MacKay / Black Ball Line, Liverpool

Marco PoloThe Black Ball Line was founded in 1852 by James Baines & Thomas MacKay, Liverpool as a regular packet service to Australia at the time of the gold rush. There were also two junior partners, Joseph Greaves and John Taylor. However, the company also traded to other parts of the world, notably to the Crimea and to India for transport duties. Other services ran to China and New Zealand. The Black Ball Line traded successfully until 1866 when Barned's Bank collapsed and the company which was one of its main debtors was forced to sell many of its ships. The Line carried on until 1871 when it ceased trading. Baines and his partners also owned several ships seperate from each other.

The Black Ball Line had a contract to deliver mail to Australia, which started with the purchase of the St. John, New Brunswick ship, Marco Polo, built by James Smith. This line carried more passengers to Australia than any other line. In addition to the Marco Polo, the Black Ball Line at various times owned more than fifteen other Saint John ships as well as several ships built by Donald McKay of East Boston.
These vessels were comfortable, had well ventilated quarters for steerage passengers, state rooms for cabin passengers, smoking rooms, decorated saloons and were strongly rigged.
