'Mary Lohden', a twin-mastered iron screw steamer launched in March 1883, was named after the wife of owner Jacob Lohden, of West Hartlepool. In 1894 she was sold to a Swedish company, and in 1910 was renamed 'Mary'. In 1915 Mary sailed from Seaham Harbour for Sweden with coal and was never seen again. Mary Lohden's younger son was Frederick Charles Lohden OBE (1871-1954), England rugby player against Wales in 1893 and Chairman of the Lawn Tennis Association in 1933.
