Lot Notes
Despite the surprisingly large number of late eighteenth centurysailing vessels, mostly brigs, named Ceres in honour of the Romangoddess of agriculture, the brig portrayed here is probablyidentifiable as one built at Whitehaven in 1798. Measured at 100tons and owned by Mr. Daniel Brocklebank, her builder, and also theman whose two sons would shortly found the famous ship-owningdynasty of Thomas & John Brocklebank, she was commanded byCaptain Merrick and traded coal out of Whitehaven to St. Petersburgand other Baltic destinations.
It is well documented that Daniel Brocklebank was extremelyreluctant to send his ships too far afield given the prevailing warwith France and as if to confirm his fears, Ceres was captured bythe French in 1799 and never heard of again. It is thereforepossible that this portrait of her was commissioned by Brocklebankas a memento of the virtually new brig he had lost to enemyaction.
