The Margaret Murray, Thomas Waters Master, hove-to in a hurricane in the Atlantic

The Margaret Murray was built for the Annan shipping family of Nicholson and named for the ship owner's daughter.  Shipbuilding was a thriving industry in Annan during the mid-19th century and the town owes much of its Victorian wealth to the Solway and most of its finest buildings seen in the High Street today were built during this period when ship building and other industries such as fishing, and the export of fine sandstone were at its highest intensity.   Oil painting of a Barque design ship in heavy seas.
