    • (Research):The Falstaff was the second full-rigged sailing ship built by the Barrow Shipbuilding Company. She was Yard No. 20 and was launched on the 24th February 1875. The Falstaff had single topgallant sails and a long jibboom on her bowsprit.

      The Falstaff was built for James Beazley & Sons. Beazley was already managing Barrow's first iron ship, the British Duke, built the previous month for the British Shipowners Association. He was a Liverpool shipowner, respected for his treatment of his ships' crews, and he had been owner of the famous tea clipper Robin Hood.

      Source 2 reports that the Falstaff was commanded for a year by Capt. Thomas Yardley Powles, who operated the ship in the Calcutta trade, probably bringing jute to Barrow. His best outward passage time was 85 days, and the best return time was 99 days.
