Surrey Steamship Company History and Ephemera
The Surrey Steamship Co., Ltd. of London operated the "Reigate" - a three-masted ship built in 1862 by C. Lungley, London for J. H. Allan, London. She was sold in 1876 to W. B. Jones of Swansea.
This contract was intended for First Class passage on the SS Reigate of the Surrey Steamship Company, a 3-mast, full-rigged ship built in 1862 weighing 1,035 tons. The cost of the voyage from Melbourne to London was £85, over £7,150 in today's currency.
