Your vessel is probably the "Lord Gough".
She was built in 1878 by Laird Brothers, Birkenhead for G.M.Papayanni. Her
details were 3,655 gross tons, length 382.8ft x beam 40.2ft, one funnel,
four masts, iron construction, single screw and a speed of 12 knots. I have
no information on her passenger accommodation.
Launched in November 1878, she was chartered to the American Line and made
her maiden voyage from Liverpool to Philadelphia in April 1879. In 1888 she
was bought by the Lord Gough Steamship Co (American Line) but continued to
sail under the British flag. She commenced her last Liverpool - Philadelphia
voyage on 9/2/1895 and was sold in 1896 to the Aberdeen Atlantic Line. In
1898 she was resold and scrapped the following year at Genoa. [North
