Built by Hay for their own fleet, Adelaide was sold to Wm Walker of Maryport in 1895 and then in 1898 to the Manchester, Liverpool & North Wales Steamship Co, of Liverpool. In 1899 she was bought by Henry Ensor of Queenstown, mainly working out of Cork until around 1927. She was broken up at Milford haven in 1935

Adelaide was involved in salvaging the cargo of metal pipes from the sunken "Alfred" in the Forth of Forth in October 1878.
