Our story

This site is brought to you by the Becklake, Parkinson, Robinson, Wilson and Frymann families. It tells a true story about our ancestors, Capt. George Strible Hill (the Captain of the ship Orient), Prudence (the Captain’s wife and author of the journal) and one of their many journeys on The Orient.

The best place to start is by reading the journal, written by the wife of the ship’s captain, which begins here http://www.roundthehornin1867.com/category/round-the-horn-in-1867/the-journal/september-1867-the-journey-begins/.

We would like to hear from you and enjoy receiving feedback from our site’s readers. Please contact us at info@roundthehornin1867.com.
