CAPTAIN'S JOURNAL OF
 S.S. BELGENLAND, 1881
SAMUEL JACKSON, MASTER 
COLLECTION OF HISTORIC
Passenger salutations and drawings 
  • Feb, Mar, 1881 and other later years
  • Includes many hand drawn portraits and seascapes by passengers
  • Letters, Poems, Recipes
  • Other miscellaneous papers

Presented is a collection of very unusual documents from the personal journal of

Samuel Jackson, Captain of the Red Line steamer Begenland during one of its early

voyages, likely Antwerp - New York or return. This is the first BELGENLAND that

was built by the Barrow Shipbuilding Co,and launched for the Red Star Line in Antwerp

on 24th Dec.1878

 

The leather bound book was made up from pages of passenger's autographs and

greetings to the captain, numerous pencil drawings and other scenes. It has poems,

recipes, and letters, all handwritten, that the passengers gave the captain to include.

The pages are not numbered, and some are blank. It has entries through June 12, 1881 and some documents with dates as late as September 3, 1885 and as early as May 30,

1879. 

 

Some clever new owner will have the drawings removed, matted and framed for display. They will make a standout wall treatment displaying ocean travelers in the late 1800's.

 

The leather-bound log book is titled:

 

Captain Samuel Jackson

S.S. "Begenland"

Feb. 26th March 14th 1881

 



 

CONDITION: Except for the cover which is separated from the binding all the interior

pages are in good shape. They would make an outstanding arrangement if framed and

displayed individually.

 

THE SHIP: BEGENLAND, 1878

 

3,692 gross tons, length 402.9ft x beam 40.2ft, one funnel, four masts, iron hull, single screw, speed 14 knots,

accommodation for 150-1st and 1,000-3rd class

passengers.

 

Built by Barrow Shipbuilding Co, she was launched for the Red Star Line, Antwerp on 24th Dec.1878. Her maiden voyage from Antwerp to Philadelphia started on 30th Mar.1879

and she transferred to Antwerp - New York sailings on 20th May 1879. Her last voyage

on this service started 6th Jul.1895 and she was then chartered to the American Line.

Reclassified to carry 150-2nd and 1,000-3rd class passengers,
she commenced

Philadelphia - Liverpool sailings on 31st Jul. 1895. Her last sailing on this route started

17th Oct.1903. Returned to Red Star Line, she was put on the Antwerp - Philadelphia

service with 3rd class passengers only. Her last Philadelphia - Antwerp crossing started 7th Dec.1904 and she was then sold to Italian owners and renamed VENERE. Scrapped in 1906.
[North Atlantic Seaway by N.R.P.Bonsor, vol.2,p.850]

 

THE RED STAR LINE: The Red Star Line was a passenger ocean line that existed

between its founding in 1871 and its amalgamation into the International Mercantile

Marine Co. in 1902. The line was a joint venture between the International Navigation

Company of Philadelphia, which also ran the American Line, and the Société Anonyme

de Navigation Belgo-Américaine of Antwerp, Belgium. The company's main  ports of

Call were New York City and Philadelphia in the United States and Antwerp in Belgium. The company was founded by Clement Griscom, who led it from its founding until its merger

into the IMM.

 

Red Star ships generally were given names ending in "-land". Notable Red Star ships

included Belgenland, Finland, Kroonland, Lapland, Vaderland, and Zeeland.
