Capt. Marchand Hugh Penfold

The first mention of Captain Penfold is in the 'Cape Argus', a Currie Line (it was not then known as the Castle Line) advertisement, the "Edinburgh Castle" being expected.  

Donald Curry was unlikely to have entrusted the command of a ship for which he anticipated great results, to somebody virtually unknown to him.  Thus it is very likely that Captain Penfold came from one of Curry's famous line of clipper ships

The next mention of Captain Penfold is when he sits as one of the two nautical assessors to Mr. Campbell, the Resident Magistrate, at the "Teuton" inquiry, in held in Cape Town, 8th t the 15th September, 1881
