Cunard Sir Samuel 1787-1865 Born In Halifax His Practical
training fitted him for the important role he was to fill in the
evolution of ocean shipping. Watched closely the early attempts to cross
the Atlantic by steam, and when in 1838 the British government invited
tenders for carrying the mails between Liverpool, Halifax, and Boston,
immediately sailed for England and laid before the Admiralty his
carefully-matured plans for a line of steamships. Succeeded in enlisting
the support of several big shipping firms in England, and had no
difficulty in securing the contract. So originated the Cunard company,
which from an initial fleet of four vessels of 1200 tons each and 440
horse-power has grown to its present gigantic proportions. Was one of
the owners of the Royal William (q.v.). Made a baronet, 1859.
