Abstract
The Royal William was the first Canadian ship to cross the Atlantic entirely under steam power. It was built by Messrs Black and Campbell and launched at Quebec City on April 27, 1831. Two years later, on August 18, 1833, it left Pictou, Nova Scotia, with seven passengers and a load of coal and arrived at Gravesend, England, after a twenty-five day passage.
