The trading wherry 'Maud' - information boards
The information board depicted here provides some information about Maud's best-known skippers. Her first skipper was Alfred Powley from Reedham, who was known by the nickname "Ophir" and in 1910 he was succeeded by his son Walter, and in 1916 by Walter "Nolly" Farrows. In July 1918, the vessel was sold to James Hobrough where she was soon de-rigged and used as a lighter. Her skipper from about 1919 to about 1949 was Nolly Farrow's son George. Horbrough also hired out his wherries during the sugar beet season and it has been documented that JR Adams skippered her in 1935 and Walter Gates in 1936/37. When Maud was motorised she had many skippers but the one most associated with her in her last days was John Fox at May Gurney's.
