NOTES: George Lamberton of New Haven, CT was probably a merchant from London, England. He, and in the company of others, tried to establish a settlement in Delaware, but were resisted by the Swedes who had settled there.

Failing in this they built or had built a ship in Rhode Island to be used in trade with England and other countries. They named the ship "Fellowship".

In the winter of 1645/6 the Fellowship was chartered by "The Company of Merchants of New Haven". Captain George Lamberton was in command. The ship was laden with peas, wheat, hides from West India, plate and beaver pelts. Seventy persons were on Board.

The loading of the ship was delayed so that it was not ready to sail until winter. In order to get to sea they had to chop through ice for three miles. The ship was never heard from again.


In the spring a cloud floated over New Haven
which the people thought resembled the shape of the
Fellowship.
As a result,
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
wrote the poem,
THE PHANTOM SHIP
