A scheme which never came to fruition. It is however one that can be seen to have a connection to the later and successful Greenwich and Deptford Company. No date, probably 1830s.
Those involved were:
Sir William Beatty: Governor of Greenwich Hospital. FRS. Beatty was Nelson’s doctor who ministered to him at his death at Trafalgar.
George Barrett: Lived Circus Street, Greenwich. Possibly the water colour painter. The son of a more famous, Irish, father.
Adam Gordon: Deptford shipbuilder.
