The Davidson family's connection with Routenbeck was such that they named four of their seven vessels after places near their home, Orchard House at Routenbeck; this barque being No.5. Built by The Whitehaven Shipbuilding Co. and launched in April of 1875, she was 208 feet long, 32 broad and almost 20 feet deep. Her maiden voyage, made in November of that year, was from Liverpool to Sydney. The Routenbeck traded for the Davidson Line for over 20 years before being sold to the Liverpool ship owner G.M.Bushby in 1897, being renamed Bellas. Later owned by John Stewart before being sold to Danish owners in 1921, she was eventually broken up in 1924.
