1851

From The Story of Dartmouth, by Dr. John P. Martin:

The summer of 1851 another meeting of the Dartmouth Water Company was held, and plans discussed for laying pipes from the lake. A Committee was appointed to solicit subscriptions to the fund already on hand, so that the work might soon be undertaken.

Two new vessels were completed. From Chappell’s the 300-ton barque “Coringa” was launched and the brig “Express” of 143 tons went off from Lyle’s yard.
