Thwaites and Bailey

From Historical Hastings

Thwaites and Bailey were a coal merchant who operated their own fleet of vessels, being recorded as the selling agent for the sloop Hope in 1827[1][2] Another known vessel was the brig Cobourg[3] It is uncertain as yet whether they were connected to the Thwaites Shipyard in any way.
