Lothair was a composite clipper ship of roughly 794 tons, built in 1869 by William Waker at Rotherhithe for his own shipping business. In 1873, she was purchased by Killick, Martin & Co. and sailed in the tea trade to ports such as London, New York, Yokohama and Hong Kong.
In 1885, she was sold to William Bowen, Llanelly, Carmarthenshire; in 1891, to G. Buccelli & D. Loero, Genoa, and finally, in 1905 to F.G. Piaggio, Callao. Lothair was lost in 1910.
