Mary It was the one at the Jarrow Slake, this was purpose built and wasn't classed as a ship rather a floating hospital it was anchored by pylons set into the river bed, It was built by Wood Skinner and co at Bill Quay. It was put in place in 1185/6 and remained in place until 1930, it mainly held seamen who arrived unwell as following cholera epidemics etc the authorities were cautious, I have found out some more information as well as a drawing of the hospital which I will try and get on in the next day or two
