EGYPT 1871
"The EGYPT was an emigrant ship. She was a 4,670 gross ton ship, length 443ft x beam 44.3ft, two funnels, four masts (rigged for sail), iron construction, single screw and a speed of 13 knots. There was accommodation for 120-1st and 1,400-3rd class passengers. Built by the Liverpool Shipbuilding Co, Liverpool (engines by J. Jack, Rollo & Co, Liverpool), she was launched for the National Line of Liverpool on 9th Feb.1871. Apart from the GREAT EASTERN, she was the largest ship in the world for a time. Her maiden voyage started on 10th Nov.1871 when she left Liverpool for Queenstown (Cobh) and New York. In 1879 she was chartered to the British Government for use as a transport during the Zulu War. On 18th Jan.1883 she commenced a single round voyage under charter to the Inman Line and started her last Liverpool - New York sailing on 8th Nov.1889. She transferred to London - New York sailings on 2nd Jan.1890 and on 10th Jul.1890 left New York for Liverpool. On the homeward passage she was destroyed by fire at sea on 19th Jul.1890, and although no human lives were lost, 600 head of cattle perish."
