The SPRINGBANK was in the fleet from 1894 TO 1913 before being sold on

Barque “Springbank”

“Upon the arrival In Sydney on Saturday last of the four-masted barque Springbank, it was reported the wife of the captain and two of the crew had died from natural causes during the trip from Vancouver. In other respects the trip of the vessel was also remarkable; her great deck-load of timber making her so tender that she would not stand a heavy press of sail. Consequently her movements were necessarily slow, the voyage occupying 97 days.

The vessel brought over two million feet of lumber.”

“The Argus” 01 Dec 1909. Melbourne, Victoria
