Captain John Clint was born in South Shields in 1786, and spent many years in the merchant service before becoming a shipowner. His wife Mary nee TOLSON was born in the fishing port of MARYPORT, CUMBRIA. Maryport has strong ties with the Ards especially Portavogie.

John settled in Liverpool in 1822 but he retired to Higher Bebington, Cheshire and is showing in the 1861 census. He died 26 February 1868 at the home of his son Thomas T Clint of Ashfield Park Rock Ferry in the County of Chester.  

He was an experienced seaman who had worked his way up from a poor background to become a shipowner. Clint supported a number of Liverpool charities.

In 1860 he was one of the principal mourners at the funeral of Captain William Harrison Chief Commander of The Great Eastern.
Capt John Clint chairman & secretary Mr W B Thompson of the Mercantile Marine Association & with 60 others of the same followed the prosession to St. Jame's Cementry, Liverpool.

In 1863 Captain John Clint, a Liverpool shipowner, proposed the idea that a sea training school should be established for the orphans and sons of Liverpool seamen. Clint had helped found the Liverpool Shipowners' Association in 1839, the Pilots' Commission, the Dock and Harbour Company, the Liverpool Sailors' Home, the Northern Hospital, but most importantly Clint had been the prime mover in establishing HMS Conway and the Akbar, a reformatory school for boys

The origins of the Akbar
The first training ship Akbar was bought in 1855 by a new organisation called the Liverpool Juvenile Reformatory Association. The ship was in a very poor condition so it cost £2000 (worth around £95,000 in 2001), double the original estimated cost, to make essential repairs and alterations.

The Akbar's founders
Captain John Clint and John Cropper were leading members of the Association which turned the Akbar into a reformatory ship for boys who had committed crimes.
John Clint supported a number of Liverpool charities.
Cropper was another man who was well known for his charitable work in Liverpool. He was also an active opponent of the slave trade.

The TS Indefatigable was founded in 1864 by one John Clint, who set up a committee to raise funds to offer naval training to poor and destitute boys, and the sons and orphans of sailors. Financial assistance was rendered by James Bibby, of Bibby Line Shipping, whose family helped support the `Inde` for many years to follow. At that time the trainees actually lived on the ship, which was moored off Rock Ferry, on the Birkenhead side of the Mersey. The ship was an ex Royal Navy wooden frigate, and the gun deck was converted to accommodate 200 boys in hammocks.

The original ship lasted through to 1914, when it was scrapped and replaced by a masted cruiser named H.M.S Phaeton, subsequently renamed Indefatigable.

The iron ship, Calcutta, struck the rocks off Kilmore in Ballyteigue Bay during for on 17/1/1874. She was owned by F A Clint & Co of Liverpool. The ship was bound for Liverpool from SURINAM. Captain Hamilton and his crew were lost.  
The Irish Times of 16 Feb 1874 reported on the Board of Trade inquiry into the wreck of the Calcutta. It says it was lost, at Forlorn Rock, January last. Captain Hamilton was found negligent and his certificate was suspended for six months (this indicates that he was not lost, as stated above).


Lancaster Gazzette, 10/7/1813
The Paragon, Clint, & the William, Gill from Liverpool for Buenos Ayres were taken 3rd April. Lat 27 south Long 40; by the "Grand Turk" American privateer of 16 guns & 180 men. Lloyds 7th July 1813

This must be the 2nd Paragon

A British ship built in 1837 in Liverpool, owners were Clint & Co of that city. The PARAGON was mentioned in the San Francisco Daily Herald on December 30, 1854. The last reference to the PARAGON in Lloyds register was in 1879. The collection contains a receipt issued on July 12, 1851 by the US Consul in the Phillippines to the master John Payne, of the PARAGON, confirming payment for ship stores.


A fine iron ship owned by Clint of Liverpool disappeared 7th Sept.1871 en rout from Calcutta to Liverpool under one of the best masters Capt. Fairlem.


Lloyd's Register of Shipping 1857-8: ship, registered at Liverpool, owned Clint & Co., master Tiddy, voyage Liverpool for Calcutta.
Lloyd's Register of Shipping 1860-1: ship, registered at Liverpool, owned Clint & Co., master F.B.Hire, voyage Liverpool for India.

The Cannata was a ship built at Maryport by K.Wood & Son, and launched on the 23rd April 1845. She was built for Kenneth, Dowie & Co. of Liverpool, was registered at Liverpool, and was intended for the Montreal trade, according to the newspaper report of her launch. She was first commanded by Capt.Digby Berkeley Morton, but he seems to have only stayed with her for her first voyage. In October 1846 the Cannata, Captain Tillson, was bound from Manilla to London when she picked up the survivors from the Elizabeth Walker, of Glasgow, that had been abandoned on fire. The boats were towed into Singapore. The Cannata seems to have spent the rest of her career in the trade to the Far East.

In October 1861 the Cannata was re-surveyed at Liverpool, and it appears that she was re-rigged as a barque at this time, and sold to John Hodgeton, her future commander. He continued in the China trade, taking her to Singapore in 1862 and to Hong Kong in 1864. On the 18th March 1865 the Cannata was abandoned at sea off Rangoon. It seems she was subsequently recovered and repaired, and in 1867 she was owned in Rangoon by James Cotton.
