 The drawing was made from measurements taken from a model in the Liverpool Museum with assistance from their staff. The Knight of Sf. Patrick was built by the Grangemouth Dockyard Co., and was engined by Dunsmuir and Jackson of Glasgow 

   John Prendevillewas the manager of the Mersey Original Steam Tugs Company from 1856. It was he who first introduced the name Knight of ... to the Liverpool tug scene. At first he operated paddle tugs of around 130 tons, but in 1883 he placed an order for the first of a series of large twin-screw tugs for ocean towing. The first, the Knight of the Cross, was sold almost at once to the Admiralty who, at that time, were buying up big civilian tugs of that type. In 1884 she was replaced by the Knight of St. John, and in 1886 a consort was added in the shape of the Knight of St. Patrick. The way of registering these vessels was somewhat unorthodox by today s standards. Each tug was registered in its own name as a separate company, e.g., the 'Knight of St. Patrick Steam Tug Company' (J. Prendeville, manager). The Knight of the Cross finished up in Spain as the San Antonio, and the other two went to Turkey. The dimensions of the Knight of St. Patrick vary according to the register consulted, but in the Mercantile Navy List of 1889 she is shown as 147.2 ft. x 22.6 ft. x 12.4 ft. with a gross tonnage of 274 tons
