The Fleets

Tyne Steam Shipping Co.

Formed in 1864 by the amalgamation of W. D. Stephens, Tyne and Continental Steam Navigation Co and the Newcastle, Antwerp and Dunkirk Steam Shipping Co. Regular cargo and passenger services were made between Newcastle and London, Dunkirk, Antwerp, Rotterdam and Hamburg. A service to Hull was added soon afterwards. Temporary routes were added as required - Newcastle to Copenhagen 1874-1877 for instance and the Dunkirk route was closed in 1868. In 1875 they took over the Yarmouth Line with their two ships, but the trade to Yarmouth ceased in 1880. By the 1890s, the number of passengers carried annually had risen to over 20,000. In 1904 the company combined with the Tees Union Shipping Co, Furness Withy Coastal and the Free Trade Wharf Co. to form the Tyne-Tees Steamship Co.
