Brighton and Continental Steam Packet Co
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Railway Company disputed the legality of the ownership of steamboats by a railway company so these boats were withdrawn from the service and sold, and the Channel passenger traffic discontinued.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.
