About Builders
 Richardson, Duck & Co., Thornaby (Stockton-On-Tees)
Twenty-four year old Joseph Richardson and George N. Duck formed the company Richardson Duck late in 1854. In the period up to 1865 the yard built a total of 50 screw steamers, one paddle steamer, 10 sailing ships and 29 barges. the first steel ships built on the Tees were launched from this yard in 1859. Over the years the yard took over numerous other yards on the Tees until 1865 when it amalgamated with the engine builder Thomas Richardson and the shipbuilder Denton Gray, both of Hartlepool, forming Richardson, Denton, Duck & Co. though a year later split back in to its constituent parts. Over the period 1870-72 output of the yard averaged 10,000 tons per annum. By 1882 this had risen to 21,000 tons. In 1909 the company was put on the Admiralty List. The yard was busy throughout the first world War, building, amongst others , two Flower class sloops. During the 1920s the company suffered a fall in orders and went in to liquidation in 1925.
