The Lord Shaftesbury was built by the Whitehaven Shipbuilding Company No. 2 in December 1888. She was a steel four-masted ship of 2272 gross tons and owned originally by John Herron (the Lord Line). The Lord Shaftesbury later entered American ownership and was renamed Golden Gate, and was eventually reduced to a barque rig. She has been claimed to be the first sailing vessel to pass through the Panama Canal, which was opened to commercial shipping from the 3rd August 1914.The Record of American and Foreign Shipping 1895 names her master as Capt.J.Cunningham, still registered in Liverpool and ship-rigged.
