The Lady Eleanor (Official No.68929) was an iron-hulled 764-ton schooner-rigged steam cargo vessel measuring 60.96 m in length, with an 8.6-m beam. John G. Gulston of Sunderland built and completed her as Yard No.3 in 1875 and launched her in September 1875 for the 2nd Earl of Durham, George Frederick d’Arcy Lambton, Sunderland; the ship was also registered at Sunderland. The single iron screw was powered by a two-cylinder compound steam engine that used one boiler.
