Notes

Broughton was the first vessel built by Harland & Wolff for T. H. Ismay (founded White Star Line); predating the order for Oceanic (Yard No. 73) by almost two years. A half-share in the vessel was taken up by Edward J. Harland, Gustav W. Wolff and his uncle Gustav C. Schwabe, whose home Broughton Hall in West Derby, the sailing ship was named after.
