There are very probably everything wrong with the yard no, etc.
Edinburgh Evening News - Friday 10 December 1897
listed all ships built in 1897 by Hawthorns & Co, Leith
andf there are no any ship matched. Except of 2 steamers for Hull, 4 barges of 120t for Capre Town and 2 lighthips of 40t for Granton were built.
So, the WSS yard list of Hawthorns is wrong in that point!
