Clyde Screw Steam Packet Company
The Clyde Screw Steam Packet Company commenced in 1854. The company owned two ships, but the second one (PETREL) never completed her New York voyage, but turned back to Glasgow after encountering severe heavy weather damage. The CLYDE made two voyages in 1854 to New York and had to put into Halifax on the second for coal. Both ships were taken over as Crimean War transports in late 1854 and the PETREL was destroyed by fire at Bone, Algeria while employed as a transport. The CLYDE resumed Quebec - Montreal sailings in 1857 but was wrecked on her second voyage and the company ceased operations.
