Hi – I wonder whether anyone can help?
ffice ffice" />
I am investigating the history of a vintage motor vessel called “Seran”, designed by Higley Halliday and built by Frank Maynard, Chiswick in 1926. The information pieced together to date is currently posted on the National Historic Ships website: http://www.nationalhistoricships.org.uk/ships_register.php?action=ship&id=2367
The first owner was a Charles Regnart based in London (I believe). At some point between 1939 and 1945 Seran was acquired by a Geoffrey B Wright of Belbroughton, Worcs and was, I believe moved to the Rivery Severn, where she remained until the late 1980’s, through a succession of owners: L J O’Connor, R L Griffin, D C Ross, John Guest, R J Fee - all in the Worcestershire region.
I was wondering whether any of these individuals were members of the club and therefore, whether information on Seran or any of the owners were in your records? It would be fascinating to track down any early photo’s also as I am in the process of slowly restoring her.
Any assistance would be much appreciated.
