(IrcScFR: t. 3,200 gr.; l. 270'; b. 50'; dph. 22')
Santa Maria, also known as Glasgow or Frigate No. 61 while on the ways at Clydebank, never received her Confederate name: To Secretary Mallory, Commander Bulloch and their circle, she was simply "North's ship," after Comdr. James H. North, CSN, who selected and was largely responsible for her. The British Government, under diplomatic pressure from the United States, canceled the £182,000 contract of 21 May 1862, arranged through intermediaries by Commander North, and sold her to the Danish Navy, where she was long known as HDMS Danmark.
