Baltischer Lloyd / Baltic Lloyd:
http://www.theshipslist.com/ships/lines ... rlloyd.htm


The Baltischer Lloyd (Baltic Lloyd) started in 1870 with a capital
of 650.000 thalers (£ 100,000). The Baltischer Lloyd did quite well
with the passenger trade; the ships could accommodate 150 first
and second class and 700 steerage passengers, but freights did
not by any means come up to expectations.
The Baltischer Lloyd went in liquidation on 25 April 1876.

Routes:
Stettin - New York via Copenhagen and Christiansand.
Stettin - New York via Antwerp.


The first regular passenger service between Stettin an New York
was initiated by the SS HUMBOLDT of the 'Baltischer Lloyd' Line,
which arrived at New York on 16 July 1871, from Stettin 27 June,
via Coppenhagen and Christiansand, with merchandise and 655
passengers.

The line, which at its height employed 4 vessels, ceased operations
in 1874, after a total of 42 roundtrip voyages, the last voyage to
New York being undertaken by the HUMBOLDT, which sailed from
Stettin on 9 July. The service failed because, while the number of
passengers it carried was satisfactory, freights did not come any-
where near expectations: Stettin's principal exports were agricultural
products, which the United States did not need, and the only item
exported from the United States to Stettin in large quantities was
petroleum, which for safety reasons was normally carried by sailing
ships.

The second attempt to establish regular passenger service between
Stettin and New York was initiated by the SS KÄTIE, of the Stettiner
Lloyd Line
, which arrived at New York on 6 January 1881, after a
troubled maiden voyage from Glasgow (where she had been built
by Alexander Stephen). Her first arrival at New York from Stettin
(via Copenhagen, Christiansand, and Newcastle upon Tyne)
was
on 1 May 1881. The line, which employed only two vessels, ceased
operations in 1886, the last voyage being undertaken by the MARTHA,
which sailed from Stettin on 17 April, via Gothenburg 4 May.

SS MARTHA:
Stettiner Lloyd steamship MARTHA, Capt. Topp, arrived at the Bar of New York
harbor at 5 AM on 17 April 1885 (passenger manifest dated 20 April 1885),
from Stettin 30 March, via Gothenburg.

The steamship MARTHA was built for Stettiner Lloyd by G. Howaldt, Kiel,
and was launched in April 1884. 2,107 tons; 87,30 x 10,99 x 7,60 meters
(length x breadth x depth of hold); straight stem, 1 funnel, 2 masts;
steel construction, screw propulsion, compound engines (2 cylinder),
service speed 10 knots; accommodation for 25 passengers in 1st class
and 600 in steerage; crew of 40.

Stettiner Lloyd had been founded in 1880 to provide a service from Stettin
to New York via Scandinavian ports. The company owned only two vessels,
the KÄTIE, 2,737 tons, built by Alexander Stephen & Sons, Glasgow, in 1880,
and the MARTHA. 12 July 1884, maiden voyage, Stettin - Swansea - New York.
Stettiner Lloyd's service was not a success, and in 1886 was abruptly withdrawn,
without warning, the MARTHA undertaking the last sailing, leaving Stettin on
17 April 1886, and Gothenburg on 4 May 1886
. The MARTHA had made a total
of 9 roundtrip voyages for Stettiner Lloyd. The company went into liquidation,
and the MARTHA was acquired by G. Howaldt, her builders, who were almost
certainly owed a significant portion of her original purchase price. 1889,
purchased by Diederichsen, Kiel. 1900, purchased by Koshkin, Rostov, and
renamed METSCHTA (Russian registry). 1906, sold to ROPIT, Odessa. 1923,
purchased by Caillol, Marseilles, and renamed MURAT (French registry).
1926, scrapped.

SS KÄTIE made 18 roundtrips to New York.

Often you wondered how your Pommersche Leute went to the new world.
The SS KÄTIE made a total of 18 roundtrips to New York. Not all started
in Stettin, but many of them. Last ports before sailing to New York are:
Newcastle, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Christiansand, Glasgow.


It only means it could be on the ship manifest and you would be looking
at the wrong records if you look at Bremerhaven or Hamburg,

Last voyage was April 17, 1886 and arrived in New York on April 23, 1886.
According to the Information. It was from Gothenburg and I don't believe
a ship with a service speed of 10 knots can make it in that time frame.
Like always take a good look at all information and take it wit a grain of
salt.
