    The William Tapscott
    The William Tapscott: 1525 tons: 195’ x 41’ x 21’ Built: 1852 by William Drommond at Bath, Maine. The William Tapscott was one of the largest full-rigged ships built in Maine during the 1850s. She was a typical "Down Easter"-sturdy, moneymaking, moderately sparred, and designed for carrying capacity. She was a three-decker with a square stern and billethead. Among her owners, including her namesake, were such well-known mariners as William Drummond, Gilbert C. Trufant, and George B. Cornish. She hailed from New York. After plying the oceans for about forty years the William Tapscott was lost in the English Channel in the early 1890s. From Conway B. Sonne. Ships, Saints, and Mariners: A Maritime Encyclopedia of Mormon Migration 1830-1890 (Salt Lake City: University of Utah Press, 1983) pp. 198-199.
