The Tweed was a fully rigged clipper ship famous the world over for its speed. It was launched in 1854. This Bombay-built, full-rigged ship first sailed as the paddle steamer Punjaub owned and operated by the East Indea Company and serving as a troopship during the Crimean War. It was sold to John Willis and Sons, London, in 1862 and converted to a clipper. It sailed the New Zealand-Australia-England route towards the end of its life, well after the gold-rush era - for example, in 1874 February 3 - April 27 it sailed Melbourne to London in 83 days with a cargo of wool. After conversion to sail she had a successful career and was broken up in 1888 following storm damage. Her timbers were said to have been used to roof a church in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
