The “Antiope” was built in 1866 by the yard of John Reid & Co. of Glasgow for Joseph Heap & Sons in Liverpool. She was used in service from Liverpool to Melbourne, discharging horses for Madras or Calcutta, and loading rice back from Calcutta or Rangoon for her homeport.In 1868 she made her best passage to Australia, running from Liverpool to Melbourne in 68 days. The “Antiope” was used for a long time in this service before the steamers took over the rice trade.During the Russo-Japanese War of 1905 she was captured by the Japanese, who sold her as a war prize to her captain J.J.R. Matheson in 1906.The “Antiope” then remained in service under various owners and captains until 1921, when she unfortunately caught fire. Beyond repair, she was then sold to Senna Sugar Estates, for use a sugar store hulk at Beira.
