Ship Builders

1843 the shipbuilding partnership of Wigram and Green expired - the Blackwall Shipyard was divided down the middle. Money Wigram and Sons retained the western half and the Greens the eastern half.

After George Green's death the Green brothers (Richard and Henry Green) continued the firm, presumably as Richard and Henry Green, later becoming R. and H. Green and Co.

They began to make Australian voyages in the late 1840s and established a monthly service after the discovery of gold in Port Victoria in 1852. By about 1860 they had a fleet of 30 ships.
