|The Parisian was launched on November 4, 1880 and commenced her maiden voyage from Liverpool to Halifax and Boston on March 10, 1881.
She was one of the largest vessels yet built; and the first to have
"bilge keels" which are keels on the side of the ship designed to
lessen the tendancy to roll. Hopefully, this feature helped provide a
comfortable trip for the Newdick Family on the way to their new home in
Canada in 1890.|
The Parisian departed Liverpool on October 23, 1890 with the Newdick Family aboard; bound for Londonderry and Montreal. She is reported to have "arrived at Quebec Nov. 1."
