Brighton and Continental Steam Packet Company
c1848 Company formed. Owned three steamers, the Brighton, the Newhaven, and the Dieppe, which were put on the Newhaven-Dieppe route.
The South-Eastern Railway Company disputed the legality of the ownership of steamboats by a railway company so these boats were withdrawn from the service and sold, and the Channel passenger traffic discontinued. It seems the boats de facto owner was the Brighton Railway Company.
