Hi Lynette,

I have a little information on the MARLBOROUGH which was a sailing vessel,
not a SS (steamship), but can't help with your other questions.

1191 gross tons, length 69.46m x beam 7.62m, three masted full rigged ship,
iron hull, two decks, refrigerated cargo space and a crew of 30.
Built in 1876 by Robert Duncan, Port Glasgow for J. Galbraith who was one
of the Walter Savill partners (Shaw, Savill Line). In 1880 she came under
the ownership of John Leslie and took the record from Port Chalmers to
London docks in 69 days 12 hours. In Nov.1890 she left Lyttelton and went
missing off Cape Horn with a cargo of meat. She was last reported on
Jan.20th 1891. Several icebergs were seen in the area at the time and it is
surmised that she struck one. [Merchant Fleets by Duncan Haws, vol.10,
Shaw, Savill & Albion Line]
