English: The Ellerman Lines was a cargo and passenger founded in the late nineteenth century. It continued to expand with the acquisition of smaller shipping lines until it became one of the largest shipping firms in the world. Its shipping assets were sold off to larger companies until the name was dropped in 2004.

"Ellerman Lines, Ltd., with which are incorporated the Hall Line, the Papayanni Line, Westcott and Laurance Line, Coverly and Westray Line, was founded in 1840, and originally managed by Messrs. John Bibby, Sons and Co., under the style of the Bibby Line, until 1870, when it was purchased by Mssrs. Frederick Leyland and Co., and subsequently known as the Leyland Line, until acquired by the Morgan Combination, who sold the Mediterranean portion of the business to Mr. J.K. Ellerman. Steamers trade regularly between Liverpool and Portugal, Italy, Sicily, Adriatic, Alexandria, Gibraltar, Malta, Syria, Smyrna, and Constantinople."[1]
