1851 Obituary [3]

Mr. Edward Pascoe, the naval architect of the firm of Miller, Ravenhill, and Salkeld, shipbuilders and engineers, Blackwall, and Glasshouse-field.

Mr. Pascoe was well-known as a naval architect. To him we are indebted for the swiftest paddle-wheel vessels afloat; in river steamers, the "Meteor", "Joseph Miller," "Jupiter," &., and various seas, the Llewellyn, Prince Arthur, and the Ondines, and we believe most of the screw-vessels that been built in the Thames were designed by him, from the first screw-steamer, the Archimedes, to the last and best result, the Peninsular and Oriental company'a screw-ship Shanghai.

He has been cut off in the prime of life, and his decease may be regretted as a national loss.

One of his latest designs was that steam-ship, 400 feet long, for the East India Steam-packet Company. The colours of the steamers at Blackwall were hoisted half mast high, as a respect to Mr. Pascoe.
