the 40-foot yawl Gulnare

Female, CreeID#7652
In 1906 Charles Cree bought the 40-foot yawl Gulnare and on his death in 1920 she was taken over by his son Donald.1 On 2 April 1911 the 40-foot yawl Gulnare was living in her moorings, Port Victoria, Rochester, Kent, England, along with Donald Charles Ludlow Cree and Charles Edward Cree. They had sailed the 40-foot yawl Gulnare from West Mersea to Rochester that day. Donald, aged 32, was master and his father Charles was mate of the yacht. However both described themselves in the Census return that night as "part owner and crew." Both gave their occupations as barrister at law. Donald was single and Charles a widower.2

In 1970 she went to Swansea, where Bryn Fussell owned her. He and GULNARE had quite a reputation and there is a very nice account of her time in South Wales written by surveyor George Reohorn (copy available). He timed her once at 9 knts held over a 2 hour period. It was during this time that her counter stem was badly damaged when she broke her mooring. In 1980 Anthony Whitehead bought her.

She was sold again in 1985 to Howard Haynes, an airline pilot, who kept her at Dickies in Bangor. Eventually, in 1988 Michael Cartwright bought her back to the Hamble where he lived aboard her with his family. Eventually she was laid up ashore at Deacons Boat Yard for a number of years

RESTORATION

The rebuild of GULNARE has been carried out using traditional shipwright techniques and is restored to her original condition.

The existing keel was retained as it was in sound condition and a 4” strong back was added to give extra strength. During work the keel and false keels were removed and then rebedded with new keel bolts. New oak stem, sternpost and deadwoods were also added.

GULNARE has double sawn oak frames – 60% of these were replaced during the rebuild and she was totally replanked in larch, fastened with silicon bronze screws and caulked with oakum.

A solid teak swept deck was also added – again fastened with silicon bronze and its seams caulked with cotton.

DECK LAYOUT

GULNARE’s deck layout is original, but her solid teak swept deck was new in 1998, as are her teak bulwarks and covering boards. At the bow the bowsprit passes through a bronze stemhead fitting. The horizontal anchor capstan is thought to date from the 1930s and is mounted behind the bowsprit heel fitting. There is the original Fishermans anchor, which stows on teak blocks fitted to the foredeck (portside of anchor capstan).

This vessel’s side deck is uncluttered and all coamings, hatches and skylights are teak and are original. Forward of the main mast is a large hatch to access the forward cabin. Aft of the main mast is a sturdy halyard pin rack.

The skylight over the main saloon is large and is joined to a large raised sliding hatch that provides access to the main saloon – instead of washboards there are two beautiful hinged shutters. Between the companionway and the cockpit there is the skylight over the aft cabin – a teak coaming runs around the cockpit area, allowing seating port and starboard (at deck level) and a bridge deck that joins the aft skylight.

GULNARE’s original brass steering compass is mounted on the bridge deck – below the bridge deck and in the cockpit are an Echopilot depth gauge, engine instrumentation and stern gland greaser. There’s also a port for the aft cabin – teak doors, when shut, conceal this bulkhead. Outboard of the cockpit coaming, port and starboard are 2 brass deck winches. There are 4 teak cleats fitted to coamings and pad eyes fitted to the aft deck with wooden check blocks for stretching the main sail. GULNARE is tiller steered and the rudder stock is forward of the mizzen mast on the aft deck – she has a bumpkin with a heel attachment just behind the mizzen.


ACCOMMODATION

5 berths in 3 cabins.

Although only 8ft beam, GULNARE does make the most of her interior volume and benefits from an owners/aft cabin, separate saloon and forward cabin. The cabin sole floor boards are teak, the deckheads and tongue and groove style bulkheads are painted white and there is varnished mahogany trim throughout. The traditional skylights, over the aft cabin and main saloon allow plenty of light below and good ventilation.

Entering GULNARE though the main companionway there is a set of 5 steps descending to the main saloon – this stairway forms part of the aft cabin floor and swings to allow access to the aft cabin.

The aft cabin has a quarter berth to port and chart table to starboard. There are varnished mahogany steps/seats port and starboard. On the centreline is the yacht’s distribution panel and battery isolator above the engine box. The engine box has a mahogany top allowing more space for charts. Also to starboard is a heads compartment with an original round seat Baby Blake WC.

Moving forward in the boat into the main saloon there are settee berths port and starboard with blue upholstery, storage lockers in the seat backs and shelving above. At the aft end of the saloon are lockers, port and starboard with elegant tiled counters and at the forward end of the saloon, to starboard, is a Taylor’s paraffin heater mounted on the bulkhead, again with green tiles surrounding the unit. There are brass lanterns fixed to the forward bulkhead port and starboard.

The forward cabin houses a galley area - there is a sink to port with brass hand pumps and a Taylors paraffin cooker (2 burner and warming oven) to starboard. Forward of this area is a double V berth and an entrance into the anchor locker through the most forward bulkhead – teak planking attached to the vessels frames are used to good cosmetic effect in this area. There is also a forward hatch in the deck head and deck prism providing natural light.3

She was launched on the 17 January 1900 and named QUEENIE (the original Lloyds Al certificate still exists). She was sold in 1901 to Mr F A Richards who renamed her GULNARE after a rock in western Scotland. In 1906 she changed hands and was bought by Charles Cree, a barrister. He sailed her with his family until his death in 1920 when his son Donald Cree took over ownership. Donald, who was also a barrister, was Honorary Secretary of the Royal Cruising Club during the 1930s and beyond. There are many references to GULNARE in the Clubs journals including an interesting account of a cruise to France and the West Country in 1932 (copy available).

Thomas Mercer

Male, CreeID#7677, (c 1733 - November 1801)
Thomas Mercer was born c 1733 in Newry, Ulster, Ireland.1

He was educated at a grammar school and then "sent to an uncle, a merchant in Dublin, at the early age of thirteen, in whose counting-house he remained a short time. From this situation he removed to the house of another friend in Liverpool, under whose protection he had a better prospect of making his way in the world, and securing that independence, which was the early object of his honest policy and ambition. In this enterprizing mart he entered into a seafaring life, which he pursued with such industry, and every requsite quality of head and heart, that before the age of eighteen he was appointed Captain of a West Indian merchantman..."2

"... Thomas Mercer... had been shipping bullion to Canton. In 1772, Mercer was captain of a country ship Generous Friend and in 1774 he was on Crescent. Mercer was in Kedah in January 1772 and James Scott was in touch with him at Selangor in 1783. Crescent sailed to Canton..."

"Private commerce between India, insular Southeast Asia, and China from the end of the seventeenth century until 1850 was known as the country trade... Thomas Mercer (was) the captain of several country ships between 1772 and 1774 to Kedah, Selangor and Pasir."3,4

His son Franklin Hancock Mercer was baptised on 18 February 1777 in St Johns Church, Calcutta, Bengal, India.5
James Cree and Eleanor Cree were baptised at the Mission Church, Calcutta, Bengal, India, 12 February 1778 and Thomas Mercer was a godparent. The other godparents were William Walker and Elizabeth Hamilton; It was noted that both children were "(illeg.)6"

Captain Mercer has delivered at Madras on a contract with the honourable Company, 450 garce, or 25,091 bags (of rice) neat weight, of two English Maunds each, free from insurance, wastage, boat hire, or any other charge to the honourable company whatever; for which he has received, by bills on the Governor General and Council at thirty days sight, or current pagodas 58,500 or current rupees, at 370 Arcots per o/o pagodas 2,36,925 - -

Captain Mercer, agreeable to an article in his contract, has brought from Bengal, and landed safely here, treasure to the amount of pagodas 370,370 which at 3 per o/o freight is pagodas 11,111. 4. 16, or current rupees, at 375 Arcots per100 pagodas 45,000.

(Total) Current rupees 1,91,925 - -

Account of Treasure received per
Resolution Thomas Mercer in the following Dates, viz 1782. March 6. Received 22 chests of treasure containing Sicca rupees 172,413 or (current rupees) 52 910 1 53
May 21. Ditto 5 ditto gold for C Rs 600,000 or 1,58, 730 4 79
October 9. Ditto 5 ditto do. do. 599,999. 15. 11. or 1,58,730 4 79 Pagodas 3 70,370 10 51

The Resolution was Mercer's ship which as the Christianus Septimus featured in the 1784 voyage to Europe of John Cree and his family.)7

Thomas Mercer was the real owner of the Christianius Septimus which arrived in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1784 with John Cree and Carolina Matilda Fix on board. John Cree had sailed as supercargo of the Danish registered ship, the Christianus Septimus, whose formal owner was the Head Factor at Serampore, Johan Leonhard Fix. The real owner was the Anglo-Indian rice merchant Thomas Mercer and the supercargo was Fix's son-in-law and Asiatic Company's supplier of cloths, John Cree, who in the following years was to play such a prominent part in the illicit British India trade under the Danish and Genoese flags. James Cree and Eleanor Cree probably travelled with them too.8

Thomas Mercer "turned his views in 1767 to the East, where he flattered himself that perserverance and integrity would crown his wishes with success: and from thence, after various vicissitudes, some of which had nearly extinguished his most flattering hopes, he returned in 1787 with a fortune of not less than sixty thousand pounds."9

"Captain Thomas Mercer was summoned before the (impeachment) committee on (5 March 1787), and examined about his unsuccessful bid tor the 1781 opium contract. His appearance seemed no more than a pretext for receiving into evidence a letter from him to Francis, written on 4 March, full of severe reflections on Hastings.10

In 1790 Thomas Mercer exchanged correspondence with Edmund Burke, with whom he had "more than a common acquaintaince..."11,9

Thomas Mercer died in November 1801 in Dublin, Ireland.1

Mansfield), Selected Letters of Edmund Burke (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1984), p 275 (Note by the editor Mansfield), "Burke's attack on the principles of the French Revolution in the debate on the Army Estimates advertised to the world that there were serious divisions within the Opposition. It surprised many contemporaries, who had been accustomed to regarding Burke as a liberal and a reformer. Thomas Mercer (c.1733-1801) of Arno's Vale, near Newry, County Down, was apparently a rather recent acquaintance of Burke's. Shocked by Burke's comments on the French Revolution, which he had read in English newspapers, Mercer wrote from Newry on 19 February expressing his wonder at '... the imputation to you of sentiments exceedingly inimical to what is thought by many a most glorious revolution in France.' He protested against Burke's charges that the French had subverted their ancient government and church, observing that both deserved it; then proceeded to justify revolution as the only way to shake the hold of despotism, and concluded that the new French Government promised to be truly representative, the only type 'fit for rational being to live under and submit to.'... (p280:) Mercer was neither crushed nor converted by Burke's letter. He composed a ten-page answer to it in August 1790, but did not forward it to Burke until 8 November, after seeing advertisements for the publication of Reflections."

Elizabeth Hamilton

Female, CreeID#7678
Elizabeth Hamilton (25 July 1756?–1816) was a British essayist, poet, satirist and novelist. Born in Belfast to Charles Hamilton (d.1759), a Scottish merchant, and his wife Katherine Mackay (d.1767), she lived most of her life in Scotland, dying in Harrogate in England after a short illness.[1]

Her first literary efforts were directed in supporting her brother Charles in his orientalist and linguistic studies. After his death in 1792 she continued to publish orientalist scholarship, as well as historical, educationalist and theoretical works. She wrote The Cottagers of Glenburnie (1808), a tale which had much popularity in its day, and perhaps had some effect in the improvement of certain aspects of humble domestic life in Scotland. She also wrote the satirical novel Memoirs of Modern Philosophers (1800), and the anti-Jacobin Letters of a Hindoo Rajah in 1796, a work in the tradition of Montesquieu and Goldsmith. Her most important pedagogical works are: Letters on Education, Essays on the Human Mind (1796), Letters on the Elementary Principles of Education (1801),Letters addressed to the Daughter of a Nobleman, on the Formation of Religious and Moral Principle (1806), and Hints addressed to the Patrons and Directors of Schools (1815).
