1881 to 1924

Hawthorns & Co Shipbuilders also built many fine vessels from 1881 to 1924 when they were taken over by the shipyard of Henry Robb Ltd They were the first of the adjacent shipyards to be taken over by Robb and indeed they were also Engineers of well renown.

In fact Hawthorns had themself's taken over the shipyard of Thomas Morton in 1912, this was the shipyard started by the famous shipwright of the same name who had invented what he called the Patent Slipway a form of railway slipway that enabled ships to be brought out from the water so they could be worked on and thus avoiding the cost of putting a ship into dry dock.
