    Hi David. I have search all of my books on sailing ships and no exact match. There are a few likeness's mainly built 1850's to mid 1860's. Lewis's Parramatta is one, the Tweed and the Cospatrick are others. They were built to carry passengers as seen by the accommodation aft. Your photo's show a lot of accommodation but few life-boats which begs the question is it a copy of a ship or just a model. Good luck with your next visit to Rugby and hope you find some answers.

    Just offhand i would say that it is just a very good Model based on the Sailing Ships of the era, as there is no name i am sure when built if it was a genuine Ship it would have had a name put on it!

    Also there is i feel not enough detail on her to make it a real one , so just a good Model built for Display at that Chapel ??
    Cheers


    Just my thoughts though!

    Looks very much like she was built from a kit.
    Mate of mine builds them for a hobby and that one looks very much like one.

    This post reminds me of ‘ Back in the good old days when a dollar was a dollar and ma courted pa every Saturday night’ could be ‘ Back in the good old days when a ship was a ship , and not a barque or a barquentine ‘.A ship was a ship and didn’t require any further description than a 3 or 4 masted vessel square rigged on at least 3 .JS
