Although with a newly copper bottom for this she was lucky to get home.

Mrs Heulwen Jones of Porthmadog wrote to me on the 18 April 2013, so the following is quoted from her correspondence: 
“Capt Hugh Parry had the Frau built in 1878 by Simon Jones of Porthmadog and she was sold on his death in 1901.
Helena was the youngest of his children. Three of his sons were lost to the sea, one in 1892 and two in 1906″.
and:
If you google Frau Minna Peterson of Porthmadog you will get the history of the ship by Robert Dafydd Cadwalader
.My Great grandfather Captain Hugh Parry died in 1901 and the ship was sold then.If you would like a picture of him I can send you one.
The Porthmadog Maritime Museum has recently been reopened by volunteers.
It had been closed for about 4 years.I haven’t been able to help as I live over an hour away.I have lots of connections on both sides of the family,the others were ship brokers.
Capt.Hugh Parry also became a ship broker after his wife died in 1886 as some of the family were quiet young .
My grandmother Helena was next to the youngest Owen Morris who died in 1986.
She also lost 3 brother at sea Ebenezer  on New years eve 1905/6 off Kinsale Eire on the Pluvier and Maurice in the summer of 1906.
He was Capt of the Cenric lost with all hands and also Hugh died in South America in 1992 of Typhoid
I have a watercolour of the Frau by R G Pearce in 1993.
There is also a picture of her entering the Bay of Naples in 1885 in the book Porthmadog ships by Emrys Hughes and Aled Eames. Unfortunately the original went out of family as Hugh Parry was not her Capt. at the time, but I did track it down to Chester by a great granddaughter of the Captain  but have seen only a picture.
The picture of the Jane Banks is lovely
Regards
Heulwen Jones(Mrs)”
