of Belfast

1850 Thomas A. Barnes and Co established the Belfast Ironworks in Eliza Street but this was not successful due to the cost of shipping coal to Ireland. Afterwards this became the property of the Belfast Iron Company.

A secondary enterprise located on Queen's Island, the building of ships, prospered; the proprietors of this yard were Robert Hickson and Co until 1858.
