The Fleets

Thomas Dunlop & Sons / Queen Line

Thomas Dunlop of Glasgow was a provision merchant and later became a grain merchant. He bought his first ship in 1868 and eventually owned 14 sailing ships. In 1883 he purchased his first steamship. Confusion with the ships of Cayzer, Irvine's Clan Line caused Dunlop to change his naming system from Clan to Queen from 1878. The company traded successfully until 1956 when their last ship was sold and the company wound up.
